Switch plans to build a 3 million square-foot data center project in Northern Nevada, Gov. Brian 

Sandoval announced in his State of the State speech. "Switch is scheduled to expand to Northern Nevada, bringing $1 billion of investment with it," Sandoval said. The project is considered a big win among economic development circles. 

Switch's "supersnap" project also includes the development of a fiber optic network that will connect Reno, Las Vegas, Los Angeles and San Francisco - something the company calls a "superloop" and will dramatically increase the speed information can travel among the cities. The announcement continues a string of major economic development victories for Northern Nevada, which includes landing Tesla Motors' $5 billion gigafactory battery plant late last year and Apple's $1 billion data center in 2012.

So what does Switch do?

Unlike companies such as Apple, which builds and runs its own data centers for its own services such as the App Store and online retail, Switch builds data centers and leases space and equipment to its clients, who are responsible for operating and maintaining them. Among Switch's more than 1,000 clients are eBay, Xerox, DreamWorks and Shutterfly. "We expect quite a few of our clients to join us here in the Reno area".
