Switch, a globally operating company that developed more than 260 patent and patent-pending claims covering colocation data center designs, has announced the opening of its LAS VEGAS 10 data center – a Switch MOD 250 (Modularly Optimized Design) – at the company’s Core Campus.
Fueled by strong demand for colocation services from the company’s existing and new clients, Switch’s LAS VEGAS 10 adds nearly 350,000 square feet of colocation space and up to 40 megawatts (MW) of power to Switch’s Core Campus in Las Vegas, making it currently over 2 million square feet of data center space with up to 315 MW of power.
The Switch MOD 250 is designed, constructed and operated to the same specifications of the company’s existing LAS VEGAS 8 and 9 data centers, all to Switch’s proprietary “Tier 5”data center standard.
“Switch founder and CEO Rob Roy is a technology futurist who has invented and patented one of the highest rated data center systems to handle the massive growth of the Internet of absolutely everything,” said Switch’s Executive Vice President of Data Center Services, Lesley McVay. “The Internet doesn’t stop growing and neither does Switch. We expect to continue to meet the incredible growth demands of our clients, not only at The Core Campus in Las Vegas, but across the country.”
Switch‘s clients include Amazon Web Services, eBay, Marvel, Shutterfly, FOX, Amgen, Lionsgate, Zappos, Intuit, DreamWorks, Intel, MGM, HP, State of Nevada, PayPal, Hulu, Machine Zone, Boeing, Warner Brothers, NASA, Verizon and many hundreds more.
