Use Sustainable Resources Efficiently & Reduce Overall Cost of Deployment
As a global leader in sustainable data center designs and operations, Switch facilities were built end-to-end to deliver the highest multi-tenant efficiency in the industry. Switch has earned ENERGY STAR® certification which signifies that its data centers perform among top tier facilities nationwide for energy efficiency and meet strict energy efficiency performance standards set by the EPA.
Switch data centers are powered by 100% renewable energy and have achieved ZERO Scope 1 and Scope 2 carbon emissions, to reduce the carbon footprint of your IT infrastructure. Additionally, Switch Founder and CEO Rob Roy, has developed 700+ issued and pending-patent claims for efficient data center designs including technologies that enable high-density configurations to shrink your IT footprint and save you money on the cost of deployment.
Here are several featured innovations that contribute to Switch’s industry-leading efficiency:
1. EXTERIOR WALL MOUNTED MULTI-MODE HVAC UNITS: Switch TSC®
Switch’s patented Exterior Wall Mounted Multi-Mode HVAC (TSC HVAC) technology has revolutionized infrastructure technology cooling, features six different cooling modes and allows for unrivaled server density. The exterior location of these units keeps all of the water out of the data center and does not take up valuable data center floor space. Switch’s cooling system design allows the data center to run indefinitely without water.
2. PATENTED MULTI-CABINET HOT AISLE HEAT CONTAINMENT: Switch T-SCIF®
Switch’s patented 100% Hot Aisle Containment (T-SCIF) technology is the revolutionary multi-cabinet cooling system that supports the world’s most efficient cost-saving scalability. Our proprietary cooling technologies enable us to cool power levels that significantly exceed those of traditional data centers to support increased densities. This means that our clients can buy less cabinet space to house their equipment, which reduces the cost of deployment, enhances energy efficiency and extends the lifespan of equipment.
3. ENVIRONMENTAL MONITORING: Switch Living Data Center “LDC”
Switch data center interior temperature and humidity are monitored by thousands of sensors throughout each building which are part of Switch Living Data Center. Constant monitoring and efficient cooling response helps clients optimize their equipment and data processing requests to minimize energy use and save money.
