According to an announcement by the company, the new Las Vegas location adds to its locations in Miami and New York City, strategically extending its cloud hosting capabilities across the US. It will offer its full suite of services via the Las Vegas facility.

The new location will serve as a primary facility for customers on the West Coast, and a backup and replication facility for organizations on the East Coast. It will also serve as a point of presence for public and private network traffic.

C3’s Las Vegas infrastructure features flash-based storage, 16GBPS multi-path fiber channel storage networking, micro segmentation, and intelligent capacity management. It is fully interconnected to C3’s existing infrastructure in both New York and Miami.

“Today is an exciting day for the team at C3, for our clients, and for our partners,” C3 CEO Rick Mancinelli said in a statement. “Today we extend our transport network and our hosting capabilities west and become a truly national Cloud Services Provider.”

At the beginning of the year, Switch unveiled plans for its $1 billion, 3 million square foot SuperNap data center campus on 1,000 acres of land near Reno, Nevada.
