July 15, 2013

RagingWire Data Centers, the nation’s premier data center provider, announced today that the company was named a finalist in the “Innovation in the Outsourced Environment” category of the DatacenterDynamics North American Awards. The awards were held on July 12, 2013 as part of the DatacenterDynamics Converged San Francisco conference. Over 350 senior industry professionals attended this prestigious ceremony, celebrating excellence across the data center industry.

Known as the “Oscars® of the data center industry,” the annual DatacenterDynamics awards were established in Europe in 2007 to recognize excellence in data center design, environmental stewardship, and outstanding contribution to the data center industry. This is the inaugural year for the North American award which has eight categories and 27 finalists recognized for innovation, leadership, and “out of the box” thinking in the data center industry across the North American region. Along with RagingWire, other finalists for the North American award include: Cisco Systems, Datapipe, Eaton, eBay, Facebook, Fidelity Investments, IBM, TD Bank, and the University of Iowa.

“It is a great honor to be named a finalist in the DatacenterDynamics Awards,” said George Macricostas, founder and CEO of RagingWire. “To be a finalist is to recognize the vision of RagingWire’s management team and the expertise and hard work of our employees, who have created a data center design and operational philosophy that provides a world-class customer experience.”

RagingWire was recognized for the company’s unique, patented approach to power delivery and enhanced customer experience in the multi-tenant data center colocation environment. Specifically, the company was selected for the design and implementation of its two U.S. patents which work together to create a concurrently maintainable and fault tolerant data center, even during a utility outage. This design meets or exceeds the industry’s most stringent standards for redundancy and availability. As a result, RagingWire is able to reconfigure power delivery and perform maintenance and repairs without declaring maintenance windows as an exclusion to the company’s 100% uptime SLA (service level agreement).

“There is no other colocation provider in the industry that can deliver the dynamic growth and 100% uptime of RagingWire,” said Jason Weckworth, vice president of data center operations at RagingWire. “Our patented, massively scalable infrastructure means our data centers don’t go down, giving our customers confidence in their mission critical IT systems.”
