Switch: 1,100 Cabinets Sold at SuperNAP
December 18th, 2008 By: Rich Miller
We’ve been tracking the progress of the SuperNAP, the enormous new data center built by Switch Communications in Las Vegas. The 407,000 square foot facility, which opened its doors in September, will hold up to 7,000 cabinets when it is completely built out. How’s business so far? In a presentation earlier this month at the Gartner Data Center Conference, CEO and co-founder Rob Roy reported that Switch has now sold more than 1,100 cabinets.
We had an inside look at the SuperNAP this summer, and shot video of our tour of the massive facility while it was under construction, as well as two of the key technologies featured at the SuperNAP: the T-SCIF containment system and WDMD cooling units. Switch Communications and APC by Schneider (a major vendor for Switch’s facilities) recently put together a video offering a look inside the completed SuperNAP facility. This video runs about 9 minutes.
