Las Vegas-based data center provider Switch announced plans for a $1 billion SUPERNAP 9 Reno data center.
This 1,000-acre center will feature eBay Inc. as its anchor tenant, and was announced by Nevada Governor Brian Sandoval in mid-January. This is a continuation of Switch's investments in Reno, which have already resulted in 1,000 of jobs in construction and data center maintenance in the local economy.
This joins two additional SUPERNAP Las Vegas data centers already, including the Switch SUPERNAP 8 , which is the only facility that meets the Uptime Institute's Tier IV Gold rating. The new data center will also meet this rating. By the time SUPERNAP 9 opens, Switch will have 1.5 million square feet of server capacity in Nevada.
This provider already has 1,000 customers, including 40 cloud computing companies and many network carriers. Clients include some of the leaders in the industry, including Google and Microsoft's Xbox One servers.
