After breaking ground on its Greenville, South Carolina data center in April 2021, DC Blox has announced its Tier III facility is now open and operational.

The facility has an initial 25,000 square foot (2,300 sqm), and when fully built, will span 54,000 sq ft (5,000 sqm). Moreover, it can accommodate over 400 cabinets of IT equipment with a capacity of 3MW of power, and when fully built out, 18MW.

Commenting on the data center opening, Jeff Uphues, CEO of DC Blox, said: “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.”

Mark Farris, President and CEO of the Greenville Area Development Corporation, the county’s economic development arm, added: “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. 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.”
