ATLANTA — The data center company DC BLOX is introducing a data center in Greenville, South Carolina.
DC BLOX’s multi-tenant Greenville data center is 25,000 square feet and can accommodate over 400 cabinets of IT equipment and 3 MW of power, according to the company this month.
DC BLOX will develop additional capacity at the site “as demand requires.”
DC BLOX’s data center 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 18 MW of power at full build out.
The data center was designed to meet the need for local, in-state colocation to enable the region’s growth.
The Greenville facility 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 providers, and any entity in the company’s data centers throughout the Southeast: including Atlanta, Georgia; Birmingham and Huntsville, Alabama; Chattanooga, Tennessee; and an upcoming facility in High Point/Greensboro, North Carolina.
The data center is designed to Uptime Institute’s Tier III standards as well as Controlled Unclassified Information (CUI) standards, to a highly efficient, secure and interconnected data center.
The facility was built “specifically to accelerate the deployment of critical infrastructure and interconnected cloud services throughout South Carolina,” said Jeff Uphues, CEO of DC BLOX.
“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,” Uphues said.
Mark Farris, president and CEO of the Greenville Area Development Corporation, said prospective companies that are considering Greenville for new or expanded operations are “increasingly interested in our information technology, data storage and data transmission capabilities, with cybersecurity a critical concern as well.”
