The new enterprise-class, network diverse, LEED Gold Certified Minneapolis data centre is designed for optimal flexibility, connectivity, security, and power. This is the only multi-tenant Constructed Tier III Uptime Certified data centre in the region. With 9,290.304 m² of adaptable space, intuitive ergonomics, highly tenured teams and powerful critical systems infrastructure, this Minneapolis co-location solution sets a new global standard.

Minneapolis State Tax Refund

The State of Minnesota has amended a 2011 Sales and Use Taxes statute that provide a long-term sales tax refund for technology equipment and computer software used in qualifying data centres. The good news, CenturyLink's Minneapolis (MP2) data centre in Shakopee, MN has qualified! That means that CenturyLink customers who purchase hardware and software to place in our data centre are eligible for a sales tax refund on that purchase, thereby reducing their total cost of ownership for that IT infrastructure versus installing it in a non-qualified data Icenter.

CenturyLink has sold its data centres and associated co-location business to a consortium led by BC Partners and Medina Capital Advisors. This move led to the creation of a bold, new company, Cyxtera Technologies, comprised of world-class talent and technology. CenturyLink will continue to work closely with Cyxtera and the same strong team that has operated the data centres successfully for years and who will continue to deliver world-class customer service and Operational Excellence for all co-location customers.
