Tour de Switch

Switch CampusThe Las Vegas Unidev office is a half a mile from the amazing Switch. Switch is the world’s largest and most powerful data center and technology ecosystem.  A data center is used to store computer systems whether it’s for back-up or communication tools.

Last week Catherine Harris, Unidev’s VP of Mobile and Web Development toured the Switch facility with me.  The Switch facility is no ordinary data center. Since 2006 Switch and Rob Roy have over 125 claims at the patent office. This Includes 42 awarded and 83 additional designs pending release in 2012.  The data center has 2,200,000 square feet of space and 24/7/365 on site security, safety, operations, and critical infrastructure personnel. 

Switch is not only the largest data center, but they have the most powerful technology ecosystem called CORE.  CORE stands for Combined Ordering Retail Ecosystem.   Check out all the companies involved with CORE by clicking on this link http://www.switchnap.com/pages/all-things-switch/connectivity_2.php.   According to their website, no single enterprise in the world has the buying power of the combined groups that exist today in the SuperNAP client ecosystem.  This is also one of the benefits of using Switch for your business.  They have saved business thousands and thousands of dollars by offering this service to their customers.
