Abacus Data Systems (Abacus) has announced that its Abacus Private Cloud customers will be hosted by a Switch SUPERNAP data center in Las Vegas.

The agreement marks the third data center for Abacus, which is expanding rapidly as more legal industry customers of all sizes recognize the advantages of keeping their mission-critical applications and data in the Abacus Private Cloud.

Headquartered in Las Vegas, Nevada, with additional locations under development in northern Nevada, Michigan, Italy and Thailand, Switch's Tier IV Gold SUPERNAP data centers are the highest-ranking colocation data centers in the world and are maintained by the highest-rated mission critical operations teams. With more independent cloud providers than any other technology campus, SUPERNAP connects thousands of clients and providers in one of the most cost-efficient and technologically secure environment worldwide.

The SUPERNAP data center campus in Las Vegas is the largest in the world with more than 2 million square feet and more than 1,000 clients. It is powered by 100% clean and renewable energy, making Switch the world's largest colocation data center environment to operate using all-inclusive green technology.

"This partnership ensures Abacus Private Cloud customers will continue to enjoy the peace of mind that comes from knowing their data is safely housed in the most secure and environmentally sustainable facility available," said Abacus CEO Alessandra Lezama. "Our growth comes from cost-effectively connecting and protecting the businesses of hundreds of thousands of customers worldwide."

"The addition of Abacus Data Systems to the SUPERNAP cloud ecosystem further demonstrates the need for managed private cloud providers to select data centers that support the highest operational and efficiency standards in the industry. As hybrid cloud deployments continue to be the bellwether of companies with high compliance needs, true independent technology environments, like Switch SUPERNAP data centers, are the only choice," said Adam Kramer, executive vice president of strategy, Switch.
