DC BLOX, a multi-tenant data center in the Southeast, has broken ground on their new data center on more than 21 acres at the Myrtle Beach International Technology and Aerospace Park (ITAP) in Myrtle Beach.
DC BLOX is building a more than 40,000-square-foot, state-of-the-art specialized data center known as a Cable Landing Station (CLS) that will serve as the landing point for subsea optical communication cables. It 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.
Operations are expected to be online in June 2023.
In addition, a new dark fiber route linking Myrtle Beach with the connectivity hub of the Southeast in Atlanta is also under construction. The fiber route will be completed in the first quarter 2024.
During the groundbreaking ceremony, S.C. Gov. Henry McMaster said, “DC BLOX creating another facility in the state shows that South Carolina is on the cutting edge of technology. We celebrate their growth in our state and look forward to seeing the positive impact they will have in Horry County and across South Carolina.”
Secretary of Commerce Harry M. Lightsey III added, “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.”
