Data Centers
Security, compliance, redundancy and connectivity have become the critical criteria for evaluating data centers. That’s why businesses trust LightEdge with their IT infrastructure, systems and applications. We grew up in the data center and managed services space, and have spent more than 15 years making sure our network and infrastructure is secure and scalable enough to meet the most challenging needs. We enable you to do what you do better.

Our Data Center Facilities

With geographically-dispersed facilities in Des Moines, IA; Kansas City, MO and, soon-to-open Omaha, NE; our data centers are the heart of our operation and yours. We have a wide range of colocation and disaster recovery solutions deliver advanced shared infrastructure designed to enable operational and financial efficiency, reducing the burden on your IT staff.

Our Des Moines data center campus is made up of two separate facilities located in central Iowa and staffed 24/7/365. The first is a 30,000 square foot data center broken out into four quadrants. The second Altoona facility is 73,000 square feet with on-site boardrooms and worksite recovery space. Our Kansas City data center opened April of 2014 in the limestone mines of SubTropolis Technology Center.

All of our facilities are designed to offer N+1 redundancy on every main component, providing greater protection and security for your crucial IT operations.
