Built to

Before we built data centers, we couldn’t find the right fit for our customers. We observed that many facilities incurred outages and charged premiums for services and features that we didn’t need. So, we built Lumos Data Centers (formerly DC74)from the ground up to address the needs of companies who are tired of the status quo and want true value from their service providers. Our customers know we will do whatever is necessary to ensure their businesses stay online and at peak performance levels. As a result we have seen consistent growth and are honored to have been named one of the fastest growing companies in the region.
