DC BLOX reports that its new data center in its Greenville, South Carolina is now open for business.

The multitenant facility, designed to the Uptime Institute’s Tier III standards, offers an initial 3 MW of power and 25,000 square feet of space – enough for more than 400 cabinets, according to the company.

Located in Greenville’s Global Business Park off of Interstate 85, the new data center offers an alternative to enterprises, healthcare institutions, universities, managed service providers and government entities in the area who previously had to rely on sites in Charlotte and Atlanta, says DC BLOX.

The new site's initial capabilities can be expanded 54,000 square feet of white space and 18 MW of power as customer demands increase.

The facility also offers access to the DC BLOX Connectivity Exchange, which offers 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.

Those sites include facilities in Atlanta, Birmingham, Huntsville, and Chattanooga, with an additional facility in High Point/Greensboro, NC, expected to come online soon.

“We are excited to announce that our new Greenville data center is ready and open for business. 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,” commented Jeff Uphues, CEO of 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,” added Mark Farris, president and CEO of the Greenville Area Development Corp., 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.”
