Business growth in and around Birmingham is powering both recovery and expansion in Alabama. DC BLOX has announced the expansion of its Birmingham, AL data center to support and anticipate customer needs in the 2nd half of 2021. This expansion includes 1 MW of power capacity and completes the full build-out of its first data hall. The expansion is expected to be ready for service in May of 2021.
The 1 MW of additional critical load is an amount of power sufficient to supply nearly 1000 homes. It is being created through redundant feeds to each customer cabinet with dual UPS (universal power supply) and diesel generator backup systems. The Birmingham expansion also adds 135 tons of cooling capabilities, all in adherence to Tier III data center design standards. The DC BLOX facility, highly secure, provides customers a 100% power availability guarantee, protecting critical data and customer IT infrastructure.
