In September 2017, LightEdge announced that it had acquired the former Cabela’s Data Center in Papillion, NE, located just outside of the metro area in Omaha, NE. The majorly retrofitted data center opened later that month with Cabela as its anchor tenant. As one of Omaha’s first multi-tenant data center facilities, LightEdge is excited to bring highly secure, compliant, and controllable IT resources to the marketplace.
