In today’s modern world, businesses harbor an insatiable appetite for cloud-based data storage. Feeding this constant demand will likely be one of the greatest challenges coming to the tech industry within the near future. Fortunately, RagingWire is well ahead of the curve in providing a highly diverse, secure data center with high-speed Building Interconnects with network speeds that exceed the 100gbit Ethernet standard.
When looking to expand its 78-acre site in Ashburn, VA, RagingWire selected Integrated Design Group as the architectural engineering firm for this new 245,000 SF critical facility data center. Acentech provided IT Infrastructure, security system design, and audiovisual consulting for this project.
Part of RagingWire’s appeal to its clients is focused on the organization’s redundant and secure infrastructure, and its interconnected campuses. Designing spaces for the VA3 facility required a complete understanding of IT infrastructure, security systems, and audiovisual design and how they meet their corporate standards. Full integration with other buildings on the Ashburn campus—and its other facilities around the country—was a critical aspect of this project.
As a first-class provider of data storage solutions, RagingWire also looks to provide world-class amenities for its facilities. VA3 is equipped with a training center, fitness center, game room, client lounge, breakout spaces, and multiple conference rooms. Acentech’s consultants also provided guidance on the audiovisual designs of these spaces that are compliant with the strict standards of the client. Intuitive, no-hassle systems are key to productive meetings and training sessions, and Acentech worked to ensure these AV designs were as user-friendly as possible.
