The Switch MOD® (Modular Optimized Design) line of data center products are built with the same industry-leading standards as Switch’s colocation facilities. Every Switch MOD data center can be customized and scaled to meet any specific customer requirements.
The MOD® design incorporates Switch founder and CEO Rob Roy’s patented data center designs into physically secure, optimally-integrated, future-proof, mission-critical facilities. Switch’s patented 100% Hot Aisle Containment Chimney Pods and Exterior Wall Penetrating Multi-Mode HVAC Units are at the heart of Switch’s reliability and efficiency. Additionally, components featured in Switch MOD® data centers are manufactured through exclusive license agreements and are only available through Switch.
By OEM manufacturing 80% of what goes into Switch MOD data centers, Switch can build at a scale, pace and cost-savings unmatched in the industry – translating into speed to market, unbeatable value and the highest quality data centers that far exceed industry standards.
The Switch MOD 100 and MOD 250 are built to Switch’s proprietary Tier 5® data center standards, which not only encompasses the resiliency and redundancy in other data center ratings systems, but also evaluates more than 30 additional key elements.
“Rob Roy pioneered massive modular data centers when he patented his Switch WDMD® (Wattage Density Modular Designs) back in 2007,” said Switch Executive Vice President of Policy and Deputy General Counsel Sam Castor. “Today, many companies copy these designs in their data centers and while Switch is flattered, we are also ramping up our IP legal team to address those that are infringing on our patents.”
Switch MOD 250 and MOD 100 products are built to the Tier 5® / Class 5® Platinum data center standard at costs comparable to those other companies incur to build lower-rated Tier 2 and Tier 3 facilities. Switch MOD 15 is the world’s only Class 4®, system + system, fully air-transportable edge data center.
