Kansas City area data center provider, Cavern Technologies, has announced their latest expansion of 60,000 square feet of purpose built, state-of-the-art data center space. This build doubles Cavern’s footprint for a total of 120,000 square feet of wholesale colocation space.
Cavern’s latest colocation facility was designed by Leawood, Kansas based Bell/Knott & Associates, while the construction was completed by Kansas City, Missouri based JE Dunn’s Mission Critical construction team. With the latest underground Kansas City data center coming online, Cavern doubles in size for the 3rd consecutive year.
The purpose built data center features a 36 inch raised floor, dual power feeds, fully redundant UPS and generators, high capacity and fully redundant HVAC system, heat and cooling sinks, FM 200 Fire Suppression, multilevel security (including face recognition, biometrics, card scanners and video surveillance), multiple redundant fiber providers, 7x24x365 Access, and SSAE 16 Type 2.
Over the past seven years, Cavern Technologies has experienced rapid growth. Over 100 of the region’s leading banking, healthcare, insurance, legal and technology companies would now be supported by Cavern’s infrastructure and support team of network and systems engineers and facilities professionals.
Cavern’s flexible solutions allow for custom design of dedicated colocation space to support small, medium and large enterprise customers to sustain and grow their IT infrastructures.
Beyond being protected from tornadoes, ice storms, erratic weather, Cavern’s underground location would be a key advantage in the marketplace. “With the consistent ambient temperature, our cooling costs are lower than above ground facilities,” said Cavern President John Clune. “Being underground our construction costs are dramatically lower, since the hardened F5 tornado proof shell is intrinsically part of where we are located. We are able to pass those cost savings on to customers to increase their data center ROI.”
