Commitment to Compliance

CenturyLink is dedicated to continuously improving and maintaining compliance and standards that are critical to customers.

Delivering Flexibility and Peace of Mind

Inside the 60+ CenturyLink data centres around the globe, technology becomes more agile, secure and sustainable.

We augment traditional co-location solutions with a comprehensive hybrid suite of managed services, public cloud and private cloud, so companies can grow without challenge or penalty.

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 100,000 sq/ft 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.
