Las Vegas Market Overview

The Las Vegas data center market has become popular for many of the same reasons as markets like Phoenix or Denver. Las Vegas is located in close proximity to other primary West Coast markets, like Silicon Valley, but offers lower power costs, more available land, and fewer natural disaster risks. This makes Las Vegas attractive as a disaster recovery location for users with existing West Coast data centers, or for users wanting to establish a western presence, but don’t want to locate in Silicon Valley.

Much of Las Vegas’ data center growth has been caused by heavy development from Switch, the largest data center provider in the area. Switch operates nearly 180 MW across six data centers in Las Vegas, with two additional facilities under construction adding 45 MW of power. Other providers present in Las Vegas include EdgeConneX, Cyxtera, zColo, and Peak10/ViaWest, who operates approximately 10 MW between three data centers.
