Switch exists to innovate and progress the digital foundation of the connected world with a focus on sustainability and emerging technology solutions. We are recognized as a world leader in exascale data center ecosystems, edge data center designs, industry-leading telecommunications solutions and next-generation technology innovation.
Our continued leadership and success is based on the unique combination of the vision and patented technologies of our founder, chairman and CEO, Rob Roy. When he founded Switch, Rob Roy knew that data was going to run the planet and he wanted to make sure that it wouldn’t ruin the planet. We take tremendous pride in knowing that Switch is not only based on a strong commitment to sustainability, but also on a belief in the power of doing the right thing for the right reasons. Rob Roy designed the Switch logo himself, basing it on the traditional karma wheel which represents that putting good energy out into the world, brings good energy from the world. We live by the “good karma” rule in every decision we make in business and in the community.
