As increasing power demands raise concerns about a power shortage in the data center industry, RagingWire Enterprise Solutions, Inc. (RES), a leading IT outsourcing provider of infrastructure, software as a service hosting, and on-demand solutions, today announced it has completed the construction of a dedicated and owned on-site 69kV power substation. With a total design capacity of 46 megawatts, RagingWire’s fully redundant N+1 substation ensures highly reliable and scalable power that supports its enterprise clients’ expanding high-density IT environments.

The new substation is part of RagingWire’s proactive approach to ensure its state-of-theart, Class “A+” Enterprise Data CenterSM facility is equipped to provide an uninterrupted power supply that meets growing power demands. “Many providers are turning down client requests to bring in additional data circuits because they simply lack the capacity to handle their clients’ increasing workloads and power needs,” said John Hoffman, CEO of RagingWire. “RagingWire has made the necessary investments in our data center facility to support our clients’ current and future power requirements.”

Macricostas has 20 years of technical and management experience in business operations and information technology. As RagingWire’s CEO and vicechairman of the board of directors, Macricostas has an active role in business development and strategizing the company’s IT solutions to the marketplace on a global scale. Under his guidance, RagingWire achieved sustainable profitability in September 2004 and has been recognized by Inc. magazine as one of the 500 fastest growing private companies in America. Macricostas also serves as a director of Photronics, Inc. (NASDAQ:PLAB), a leading global supplier of photomasks to the semiconductor industry.

“N+1 redundancy and automatic transfer on our 69kV substation provides a level of power and reliability that is uncommon at these levels,” said Joe Kava, vice president of operations at RagingWire. “By tapping a direct 69kV from a local utility, we ensure our clients a reliable source of clean, scalable power and a path for their future growth.”

RagingWire’s 10,200-square-foot 69kV onsite substation includes power feeds from separate 230kV main utility substations to offer highly reliable, clean utility power to its Fortune 1000 and Fortune 500 enterprise clients. RagingWire also installed 12kV voltage regulators within the substation to ensure a steady voltage delivery to its clients’ servers on the data center floor. The substation will support utility power to both the facility’s existing clients, as well as the recently announced Phase 3 data center expansion, which is engineered to reach over 250 watts per square foot.
