At DC BLOX, we understand that businesses are facing increasing challenges that will have a profound impact on their ability to compete and grow in their markets.
Key business challenges include:
- Digital transformation is changing the way businesses operate and deliver services. It requires the ability to connect customers to infrastructure in their markets and across the globe.
- The paradigms of IT infrastructure are radically shifting. The cloud, SaaS, and virtualization require businesses to increase their agility to quickly move from the old way of doing business to the new.
- New physical and network infrastructure is needed, and businesses must work with state and local governments to build that infrastructure and to develop the workforce and culture to grow their tech economies.
DC BLOX exists to provide foundational infrastructure for the digital economy. Our focus is on serving growing markets where availability of secure, reliable multi-tenant data centers is limited.
We serve local markets by:
- Meeting business’s local and regional data center needs with Tier 3-rated facilities that provide the security, reliability, cost-efficiency and expertise that allows them to focus resources strategically.
- Connecting businesses to any destination worldwide through our private network and global ecosystem of communications partners. With a software-defined network fabric, connectivity to the cloud, to partners, and to providers is provisioned quickly, enabling fast response to business opportunities.
- Enabling the local communities where we do business. That means investing capital for data center construction and offering resources, services and facilities to local organizations, enhancing our communities through training, collaboration and education.
We think this is going to be a compelling infrastructure asset for us to attract new companies that use data – whether they’re interested in precision medicine or high-tech, high-growth startups like Shipt, Fleetio or Therapy Brands.
