Des Moines-based LightEdge Solutions Inc. announced today that it will open a regional data center at the underground SubTropolis Technology Center in Kansas City, Mo. The data center is the result of a partnership between LightEdge and Hunt Midwest Real Estate Development, which owns and operates the technology center. LightEdge plans to open the first phase of the 60,000-square-foot data center in the first quarter of 2014. It will serve businesses in Iowa, Missouri and Kansas, and have the ability to serve other states as well, said LightEdge CEO Jim Masterson. The company currently has a 30,000-square-foot data center in Altoona, which it will continue to operate. LightEdge is owned by Qwest Communications International Inc. founder Phil Anschutz, and Hunt Midwest is one of the entities controlled by the Lamar Hunt family, which also owns the Kansas City Chiefs football team.
