Multi-tenant data center operator DC BLOX had announced the opening of its new colocation facility in Greenville, South Carolina. This data center will offer capacity of 18MW at full build-out. The first phase of the new colocation facility in Greenville will count 25,000 square foot of data center space, accommodating more than 400 cabinets of IT equipment and 3MW of power.

Additional data center capacity will be developed as demand requires. DC BLOX’s facility is designed to Uptime Institute’s Tier III standards. It would also meet Controlled Unclassified Information (CUI) standards, providing enterprises, healthcare institutions, universities, managed service providers (MSPs) and government entities throughout South Carolina access to a highly efficient, secured, and interconnected data center space.

“We are excited to announce that our new Greenville data center is ready and open for business,” said Jeff Uphues, CEO at DC BLOX. “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.

“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,” said Jeff Uphues, CEO at DC BLOX.

DC BLOX’s purpose-built colocation data center is located in Greenville’s Global Business Park off of Interstate 85. It will have a capacity of 54,000 square feet of white space and 18MW of power at full build-out.

The new multi-tenant data center in Greenville, South Carolina, was designed to meet the need for local, reliable colocation to enable the region’s future business growth. Previously, companies in the region looking for this class of facility were forced to house their IT infrastructure in Charlotte or Atlanta, according to DC BLOX.

“Prospective companies who 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,” said Mark Farris, President and CEO of the Greenville Area Development Corporation, the county’s economic development arm. “Having DC BLOX’s high-capacity and secure Tier III data center in our community is yet another key selling point for businesses considering investment in the Upstate.

The new data center in Greenville, South Carolina, 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, Birmingham, Huntsville, Chattanooga, and an upcoming facility in High Point/Greensboro, NC.
