RagingWire was one of the early companies that helped to build what would one day become a multi-billion dollar global industry – data center colocation. The company was founded in the year 2000 to solve a problem – currently available data center solutions were not enterprise grade. At that time, companies would try to build and run their own data centers, but they lacked the expertise, scale, and budget to succeed. The result was enterprise data centers that were unreliable, underpowered, and too expensive. The RagingWire team set out to design, build and operate world-class, cost-effective data centers in which multiple tenants could have dedicated, secured deployments within a common facility. This model of companies “co-locating” their computing systems in a data center eventually became the data center colocation industry.
