In September 2020, DC BLOX announced its plans to construct a major regional data center located in Greenville County, SC as part of the essential infrastructure enabling business throughout the Southeastern United States. Six months later, construction has officially begun at the Greenville-Spartanburg site.
The first phase of construction is scheduled for completion by the third quarter of 2021 and is a first-of-its-kind facility for the region. Designed to Uptime Institute’s Tier III standards, the facility will protect Controlled Unclassified Information for enterprises and government entities throughout South Carolina. The multi-tenant data center will offer connections to DC BLOX’s carrier-grade mesh network connectivity ecosystem, connecting it to the DC BLOX portfolio of data centers in Atlanta, GA; Birmingham, AL; Chattanooga, TN; and Huntsville, AL. The initial phase will support 1MW of critical IT load, matching recent capacity expansions in the Birmingham, AL data center.
This comes after just having announced a $187 M investment with long-term financing from Post Road Group and Bain Capital Credit. The funds will be used to refinance existing credit facilities, add liquidity, and provide capital for continued investments and expanded data center capacity. DC BLOX has been one of the few data center companies to receive substantial investments for the development of mid-market and edge multi-tenant data center solutions, demonstrating trust in the strategic vision and leadership of DC BLOX.
