HIGH EFFICIENCY MULTI-SYSTEM HVAC
STORED THERMAL COOLING
ADVANCED BUILDING MANAGEMENT
Switch T-SCIF (Thermal Separate Compartment in Facility) is a 100 percent heat containment cabinet platform specifically designed to power and cool more equipment per rack more efficiently than any other facility in the world. Switch T-SCIF completely separates hot and cold aisles, ensuring the heat from equipment exhaust never blends with cold aisles in the data center, delivering the highest density and efficiencies possible.
SWITCH TSC 1000 ROTOFLY
Unique to the entire industry, the multi-mode HVAC platform in the SUPERNAP data centers is the Switch TSC 1000 ROTOFLY invented by Rob Roy. This patent pending flywheel design supports refrigeration and temperature controls during a power outage by delivering uninterruptible high-efficiency data center cooling.
The Switch SHIELD redundant data center roofing system offers two independent, separate and individually rated 200 mph steel roof decks. The roof decks, located nine feet apart, are attached to the concrete and steel shell of the facility. The Switch SHIELD is designed to mitigate extreme weather conditions, with zero roof penetrations, and provide a roofing solution that is forever maintainable.
SWITCH BLACK IRON FOREST
The Switch BLACK IRON FOREST temperature control system leverages Switch T-SCIF’s heat containment system architecture to prevent event impacts. The steel infrastructure matrix that supports the Switch T-SCIF system radiates cold-stored thermal energy and allows for the facility to achieve HVAC resiliency ratings above elite industry standards.
SWITCH LIVING DATA CENTER
The Switch Living Data Center (LDC) is a proprietary automatic building adjustment management system developed by SUPERNAP. The LDC program uses real-time vision and monitoring capabilities to react and make adjustments based on millions of daily data reads from more than 10,000 sensors. The LDC system ensures the SUPERNAP data centers are running in the most efficient manner possible every day of the year.
SWITCH WDMD POWER
SUPERNAP guarantees 100% power uptime, and has delivered exactly that since the company was started. Such a guarantee is made possible by the unique power architecture. Each SUPERNAP is divided into three separate N+2 power systems. Each of the three systems is color-coded red, blue, or grey, so that everyone always knows which system they are touching. Each and every cabinet is given a primary power circuit and a fail-over power circuit, both of which come from two completely separate N+2 power systems, and will be either red and blue, red and grey, or blue and grey. Because each client is receiving true system + system power, maintenance can be performed without interrupting service to anyone.
Since founding Switch in 2000, the parent company of SUPERNAP, Rob Roy has transformed the way data center ecosystems are engineered and utilized.
As CEO and chief inventor and designer of the SUPERNAPS, he has been continually innovating and improving technologies to build smarter, stronger, faster, safer and more efficient data center elements.
With more than 218 patented and patent pending claims for mission critical facility systems, designs and related industry technologies, Rob Roy’s inventions and thought leadership have changed the industry landscape and created a new standard of excellence for technology solutions ecosystems.
The Switch SUPERNAP 8 is the only Uptime Institute TIER 4 facility-certified colocation data center in North America. In addition, the SwitchMOD data center system is Uptime Institute design TIER 4 certified.
