The City of Reno will move its data servers to the Tahoe-Reno Industrial Center next year after getting approval for a contract with Switch on Wednesday.

Reno City Council members unanimously approved a multi-year contract with Switch and Trace3 to move the city's primary IT center, a step that city officials hope will happen in summer 2019.

The initial cost to move servers to the Switch campus at TRIC is $550,000 and it will cost the city $125,000 annually after that for server space and maintenance.

City officials indicated during the regular council meeting Wednesday that city hall wasn't the most safe or secure location to house servers.

Online documents show the servers are in an 'improvised room' where equipment sits on a wooden raised floor. The server room also has windows, which can contribute to fluctuating temperatures.
