DC BLOX Acquires Land for Tier III Data Center in High Point

DC BLOX, a provider of interconnected multi-tenant data centers that deliver the infrastructure and connectivity required to power today’s digital business, has purchased land in High Point, North Carolina, with plans to build the first highly secure, Tier III data center in Carolina Core / Piedmont Triad region, which includes High Point, Greensboro, and Winston-Salem.

DC BLOX develops, builds, and manages Tier III-designed data centers in locations that previously lacked such high-quality facilities, which were previously exclusively available in big markets. The Carolina Core / Piedmont Triad carrier-neutral data center will be the first of its type in the market. When finished, the facility will be connected to DC BLOX’s fully redundant network infrastructure, which has a 99.999 percent uptime SLA (SLA). Access to the region’s Internet Exchanges (IX) in Atlanta and Nashville, as well as plans to link to the IX in Charlotte, are all part of DC BLOX’s Southeastern regional network of data centers and connectivity partners. Direct, private access is also available to major public cloud providers and all carriers throughout its data center footprint. The facility will provide infrastructure for large-scale object storage solutions as well as colocation for major IT infrastructure and secondary disaster recovery locations.

“The High Point Economic Development Corporation, the Guilford County Economic Development Alliance, the City of High Point, and Guilford County have been fantastic partners in helping DC BLOX build a new Tier III data center in this location, approving tax incentives that will help DC BLOX and our customers grow,” says Jeff Uphues, CEO of DC BLOX. “When completed, our $305 million investment will provide major market capabilities, connectivity solutions, and highly reliable services to enterprise businesses across industries, local and state government agencies, higher education institutions, and managed service providers across North Carolina, enabling effective digital transformation.”

The tremendous expansion of data and the infrastructure required to manage it is being driven by digital transformation across sectors. To run IT infrastructure reliably, preserve equipment and data, and securely transmit that data to and from the essential platforms, suppliers, and partners, a well-connected data center is required. DC BLOX data centers are specially built to deliver crucial services that enable modern organizations to scale their IT environments. DC BLOX’s commitment to developing safe, dependable Tier III-designed data center facilities in emerging locations across the Southeast United States is reaffirmed with the Piedmont Triad property purchase.

“DC BLOX has chosen High Point to build a multi-tenant data center that could add more than $305 million to our tax base, which is the largest capital investment project for High Point in the 15 years since I have been with the High Point EDC,” said Sandy Dunbeck, Interim Director of the High Point Economic Development Commission. The company’s faith in our city and neighborhood is much appreciated.”

“Over the previous few months and through our numerous meetings, it has become evident to me that DC BLOX is a first-rate firm,” stated High Point Mayor Jay Wagner. DC BLOX’s mantra is serving locally, connecting worldwide,’ and we’re confident the firm will find High Point to be the ideal place to carry out that purpose.”

When finished, DC BLOX’s data center in High Point, NC will have a minimum of N+1 redundancy for power, cooling, and all main systems, much surpassing the reliability of local competitors. Colocation, connectivity solutions, hybrid cloud, disaster recovery, and cloud storage capabilities are among the services intended to be supplied for local market enablement.

“We have been impressed by what the corporation commits to do for the community,” said Melvin “Skip” Alston, head of the Guilford County Board of Commissioners. DC BLOX promised to “fight to eliminate the digital gap in underserved regions, offer technological support for non-profits and disadvantaged minority-owned companies, and nurture training and education for tomorrow’s technology workers” in one of its presentations to the commissioners.
