Jeff Uphues, CEO of DC BLOX, said: “We are excited to announce that our new Greenville data centre is ready and open for business. As promised, this first Tier III-designed data centre in this market was built specifically to accelerate the deployment of critical infrastructure and interconnected cloud services throughout South Carolina.

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