SuperNAP, Las Vegas, Nev. This data center run by Switch, a collocation provider, already claims to be among the 10 largest in the world with nearly 10 acres of floor space. Located in the desert surrounding Las Vegas the facility has extensive cooling systems lined up on the ground outside the building to carry off the heat generated by the 1,500 Watts/square foot of server power usage the center supports. 50 generators capable of 100 million Watts of power stand by if the power grid fails. The building is protected by a 10-foot tall blast wall and features white-noise injectors, steel-lined walls and radio frequency shielding to protect customers’ servers from being spied on.
