LightEdge’s Raleigh data center opened in 2013 and is a hybrid hosting enabled data center, going above and beyond traditional facilities to provide services, solutions, and support that blend colocation, private clouds, and managed services.

Our facilities offer storage spaces to fit your needs, and can grow along with your business requirements.

Cages – Choose between a dedicated, locked cage or a shared environment. Either way, you gain all the advantages of the existing LightEdge network and data center infrastructure, plus the convenience and security of a HITRUST certified facility to house your critical information.
