Switch is a privately held technology company based in Enterprise, Nevada. The company operates high security data centers. Switch owns and operates several data centers or colocation facilities in the Las Vegas Valley: NAP1 (recently consolidated into NAP7), NAP2 (the former Enron Broadband building), NAP3, NAP4, NAP5, NAP6, and NAP7 (know as SuperNAP).  NAP8 is currently under construction.
Switch has created the t-scif (Thermal Separate Compartment in Facility) for the purpose of completely separating the hot and cold aisles, ensuring that the hot equipment exhaust is never blended into the cold aisles in the data center.
Switch's NAP7, known as the SuperNAP, is the tenth largest colocation facility in US, although it is ranked number 1 in total power and cooling. It was opened in 2008. The massive facility is the ultimate expression of an alternate view of high-density data center design, formulated by Switch Communications CEO and co-founder Rob Roy. The SuperNAP has military-trained security armed with automatic weapons on hand 24 hours a day, seven days a week, to protect its sensitive information and server space.
