Operated by:

Cavern Technologies’ Kansas City colocation facility is located in a limestone cave 125 feet beneath Lenexa, Kansas. The cave is a three million-square-foot limestone bunker providing protection from natural disasters.

Underground caves offer natural protection from weather, and the constant 68-degree temperature reduces the facility’s dependence on power to keep the servers cool.


  • Cavern started with 60,000 square feet in 2006.
  • Then in 2013, it expanded by an additional 60,000 for a total of 110,000 sqft.
  • In 2019, it was expanded by an additional 40,000 sqft
  • The site has the ability to expand up to 500,000sqft and 50 MW of power.

Founded in 2007

Cavern Technologies, was founded by Pete Clune and John Clune in 2007. Pete and John drew from their backgrounds in risk management and executive leadership, along with the natural underground environment of the facility to establish a data center that would be a fortress of security and IT performance for customers
