DC BLOX Plans Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, Data Center
Located along more than 21 acres at the Myrtle Beach International Technology & Aerospace Park, the company is building a more than 40,000-square-foot, state-of-the-art specialized data center known as a Cable Landing Station that will serve as the landing point for subsea optical communication cables. Operations are expected to be online in June 2023.
“The Southeast is exploding with opportunity, and investments in digital infrastructure are key to its growth. We are proud to announce plans for our second data center in the state of South Carolina with this new Cable Landing Station in Myrtle Beach,” DC BLOX CEO Jeff Uphues said.
The data center will provide power to the cables to regenerate the optical signal, host local network equipment associated with the cables, provide colocation space for cable partners and local businesses, and serve as a regional exchange point for communications providers.
“As our reliance on technology grows more and more each day, we're proud that high-tech companies like DC BLOX recognize that South Carolina offers the infrastructure and assets needed to find success. We applaud their growth in South Carolina and look forward to the impact they will make here and beyond,” Secretary of Commerce Harry M. Lightsey III noted.
Founded in 2014, DC BLOX connects businesses to any destination worldwide through its private network and global ecosystem of communications partners. The company's software-defined network quickly provides connectivity to the cloud, partners and providers.
