Inside-The-Worlds-Largest-Data-Center-3.jpg

The entire campus stands at a whopping 17.4 million square feet, or just over 226 football stadiums, or around 69,600,000 newborn kittens if you are so inclined. Metric system be damned.

Point is its big. Very big.

The largest warehouse within this campus tops at 1.3 million square feet, breaking the company’s own record with the second largest reaching around 1.1.

So, how does this massive structure, which consumes over 850 megawatts of energy and runs year-round, support its energy needs?

It may come as a shock is that the largest data center in the world runs on 100 percent sustainable energy.

Being situated in a location that is as hot and sunny as it is windy might be repulsive for a human being, but it does house the ideal conditions for solar and wind power, and overall makes for a more consistent and sustainable power supply. A data center is one thing you do not want to have a power outage, especially with many businesses moving online for a lot of their dealings.

The Citadel Campus is built and owned by Switch, a company that develops and operates data centers based in Las Vegas.

The campus is capable of supplying its tributary cities, San Diego and Los Angeles, with seven-millisecond latency, and boasts over 260 patented technologies, making it among the most innovative service providers.

If the world is to sustain its endless growth and technological advancement that powers it, we can confidently say that these data centers will only get bigger. Currently the largest data center in the world may look like an outhouse compared to what is to come, but only time tell.
