DC BLOX, a provider of interconnected multi-tenant data centers that deliver the infrastructure and connectivity essential to power today’s digital business, has opened its Greenville, South Carolina, data center.
Designed to Uptime Institute’s Tier III standards, the data center is the first-of-its-kind multi-tenant data center located in South Carolina. The initial 25,000 square foot facility can accommodate more than 400 cabinets of IT equipment and 3 MW of power. Additional capacity will be developed as demand requires.
DC BLOX’s facility is designed to Controlled Unclassified Information (CUI) standards, providing enterprises, health care institutions, universities, managed service providers and government entities throughout South Carolina access to an efficient, secure and interconnected data center.
“As promised, this first Tier III-designed data center in this market was built specifically to accelerate the deployment of critical infrastructure and interconnected cloud services throughout South Carolina. We have seen robust pre-leasing activity as the Upstate is thriving and we are thrilled to be able to contribute to the region’s future growth,” said Jeff Uphues, CEO of DC BLOX.
The facility is located in Greenville’s Global Business Park off of Interstate 85 and will have a capacity of 54,000 square feet of white space and 18MW of power at full build-out. The multi-tenant data center was designed to meet the need for local, reliable, world-class colocation to enable the region’s future growth. Previously, companies in the region looking for this class of facility were forced to house their IT infrastructure in Charlotte or Atlanta.
The data center is also an access point on the DC BLOX Connectivity Exchange offering local organizations private network access to carriers across DC BLOX’s footprint, regional internet exchanges, public cloud provider, and any entity in the company’s data centers throughout the Southeast including Atlanta; Birmingham and Huntsville, Alabama; Chattanooga, Tennessee; and an upcoming facility in High Point/Greensboro, North Carolina.
