Rob Roy: The World’s Best Data Center Designer
More than a decade and a half ago, Rob Roy realized that the data center industry was going to experience unbelievable growth in all aspects of scope and consumption. It was at that time that he put forth his first patented design metrics for his Switch WDMD (Wattage Density Modular Design) program. Since that time, Rob Roy has added numerous patent claims to his portfolio and currently has more than 260 patent and patent-pending claims. Most of today’s data center companies use concepts that were first patented and introduced by Rob Roy as part of Switch WDMD. Not only is he the pioneer of many of the data center concepts and practices in use today by most practitioners in the industry, Rob Roy’s facilities have been using these practices for well over a decade, long before most of the other providers started to copy Switch’s designs and operational programs.
