High Demand for Single Cabinet Space Means Additional Growth for Switch
Switch, the developer of the renowned SUPERNAPS, the largest, best-designed technology ecosystems in the world, is rapidly selling single cabinet space to meet high customer demand for secure, cost-effective and scalable colocation, connectivity and cloud services. Over the last 60 days, Switch has on-boarded 64 single cabinet, small business clients interested in furthering their IT infrastructure initiatives while planning for growth.
“We are committed to helping our small business entrepreneurs and partners thrive,” said Switch Executive Vice President of Cloud Jason Mendenhall. “I think our clients are very surprised to find that we can match any competitors’ cabinet price while delivering a vastly superior product.”
Among the new clients in the SUPERNAP is Xenigy, a cloud service provider specializing in private and hybrid cloud deployments to expand and supplement in-house computing environments. Xenigy chose Switch to deliver innovative, secure and reliable colocation and connectivity to support their cloud technology.
“We were looking for a data center that provides the flexibility and scalability to accommodate our needs today, while allowing for future growth,” said Xenigy Founder and CEO Philip Skeete. “The SUPERNAP is by far the best environment from a technical and service standpoint. The team at Switch doesn’t just help run our business, they help us drive our business.”
Xenigy benefits from Switch CLOUD CITY, which offers more than 40 unique and independent cloud providers to the marketplace. As a part of Switch CLOUD CITY, Xenigy is able to sell their services to hundreds of Switch clients and the market as a whole.
“The SUPERNAP design allows for us to quickly and easily grow from a single cabinet to a multiple cabinet environment, all while meeting our physical security requirements,” added Skeete. “Switch delivers customized options that can be modified and scaled as our business continues to evolve and grow.”
Xenigy also has office space at The inNEVation Center, Switch’s 65,000-square-foot collaborative coworking environment where startups and entrepreneurs converge with business luminaries, political leaders and investors to launch and nurture new ventures. The Switch SUPERNAPS and The Rob Roy inNEVation Center are located within the Las Vegas Digital Exchange Campus (LVDEC).
ProSites, a leading website design firm for medical and dental professionals, chose Switch to support the company’s data center colocation services. Colocation services are a critical component of the ProSites disaster recovery strategy. As a customer of Switch, ProSites started in Switch CLOUD CITY and later migrated to their own cabinet.
“Switch provides us with a reliable and redundant infrastructure – a significant component of our success – and their team has been extremely professional and forward-thinking,” said ProSites IT Manager Jesus Zarzosa. “The facility is nothing short of world-class and as we scale our platform and expand our services into other verticals, Switch’s ongoing relationships with network and cloud providers offer accessible and appealing resources to help our company grow.”
The SUPERNAPS are the largest colocation ecosystems in the world providing density, cooling, security and energy efficiency of unprecedented scale and performance.
The Switch Combined Ordering Retail Ecosystem, referred to as the C.O.R.E, offers Switch clients the benefit of nearly $2 trillion in collective buying power leverage, while providing the lowest network costs in the U.S. Regardless of company size or industry, clients benefit from the buying power of the Switch C.O.R.E.
In June 2013, Switch opened SUPERNAP 8, the most advanced SUPERNAP yet. The SUPERNAPS are fueled by Switch Founder and CEO Rob Roy’s 218 patented and patent pending claims for data center innovation and represent innovation, security and reliability for more than 600 global clients, from passionate startups to Fortune 100 powerhouses. Clients are from industries such as retail, healthcare, gaming, entertainment, financial/banking, government, legal, IT, online retail and enterprise markets.
“Xenigy and ProSites are creating plans for success and growth,” said Mendenhall. “At Switch, we’re here to think beyond tomorrow for the benefit of our clients. Our innovations deliver the world’s most powerful business enablement gateway to our customers and partners and allow them to benefit from the buying power of the largest companies in the world.”
