Care and service at Renown is being transformed through a partnership with Switch, one of the world’s leading technology companies and developer of the highest-rated, most advanced data centers in the world.

By working with Switch, Renown has moved from a traditional data storage method to one that utilizes the safest, fastest, most advanced technology ecosystem that is also environmentally friendly. This evolutionary change will ensure that Renown can use the latest technology for its many patient data applications, and be faster, more efficient, more reliable and more secure.


Renown is one of the first northern Nevada companies to house its information technology infrastructure within the Switch TAHOE RENO data center campus in the Tahoe Reno Industrial Center. The 2,000-acre campus is designed for up to 7.2 million square feet of data center space and up to 650 megawatts of power, and will provide information technology infrastructure for some of the largest and most innovative companies around the world. All of Switch’s data centers are powered by 100 percent renewable energy, sharing Renown’s commitment to sustainability.

The northern Nevada campus is directly connected to Switch’s Core data center campus in southern Nevada over direct fiber connections called the Switch SUPERLOOP, enabling Renown to seamlessly and securely transition services between the two sites for continuous operations within the largest technology ecosystem in the world.

The news of Renown’s move was featured in multiple media outlets locally and nationally, including the Reno Gazette-Journal and Yahoo! Finance.
