Cavern’s Background

Cavern Technologies was founded by Pete Clune and John Clune in 2007. Drawing from their backgrounds in risk management and executive leadership, they leveraged the advantages of our natural limestone environment. Together, they developed a state-of-the-art underground data center that is a fortress of security and IT performance for our clients.

Cavern Technologies Today

Cavern is located 125-feet underground in a 3-million-square-foot facility designed to meet the specialized power, cooling, security, compliance and connectivity requirements companies need to support their mission-critical business processes. Our unique environment provides our clients unprecedented flexibility while minimizing the total cost of ownership of their data center, interconnection and hybrid-IT needs.

Through Pete and John’s vision, we’ve become the preferred partner of small to Fortune 1000 companies across the country.
