Miami, Florida-based Netrality Data Centers will soon open its more than 175,000-square-foot data center in Shawnee, Kansas, further growing the KC metro region as an emerging tech hub.

On Wednesday, May 22, Netrality will hold its grand opening for its newest three-acre site called KC2-7801 Nieman. The facility is located at 7801 Nieman Road in Shawnee. The facility’s current critical capacity is 5 megawatts, which could be expanded to 12 megawatts, according to Netrality.

The grand opening will feature remarks from Gerald Marshall, Netrality president and CEO; U.S. Representative Sharice Davids; Josh Maes, Netrality COO; Amber Caramella, Netrality CRO and Jill McCarthy, KCADC senior vice president.

The 10-mile distance between Netrality’s 1102 Grand facility in Kansas City, Mo., and the KC2-7801 Nieman facility will allow for one millisecond round trip latency for active-active replication between the two data centers, according to Netrality’s website.

In addition to the Kansas City facility and the newest Shawnee facility, Netrality operates data centers in Chicago, Houston, Philadelphia, St. Louis and Indianapolis.
