Switch announces record sales and construction update for SuperNAP-8
LAS VEGAS, Oct. 19, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — Switch, the designer and operator of today’s most powerful business technology ecosystems, announced record-breaking sales for the month of September. Switch sold 533 cabinets of space and 7.6 MVA of power over a 30-day time period.
“Companies have found that by partnering with the multi-trillion dollar buying power of the Switch technology business ecosystem they can substantially improve their tech ROI while staying in lock-step with the newest offerings in connectivity and cloud services,” said Rob Roy, CEO and founder of Switch.
During the last year, Switch has delivered 40 MVA to its clients at the Switch SuperNAP-7 facility. There are two units of work that describe the size of a data center: the amount of deliverable, critical load that the UPS system can support (MVA of UPS), and the deliverable amount of CFM/tons of cooling that the HVAC system can supply.
The SuperNAP-7 design has 84 MVA of UPS and over 10 million CFM available to deliver to its clients. “No other data center on earth can match it,” said Missy Young, EVP of sales. “These numbers should end the debate on what facility is the world’s largest modular data center.”
