Our Data Center Colocation Model Scales Where Others Fail

As your business grows, you need a data center partner who can keep up. With DC BLOX, you have the flexibility and power to scale within minutes – not weeks or months, and we have data center colocation plans that adjust to your needs without long-term, fixed-fee contracts.

An Innovative Approach to Colocation

Traditional data center colocation isn’t designed to accommodate the explosive data growth and power requirements of today’s enterprise applications. DC BLOX can accommodate high-density deployments, supporting the widest range of compute and storage footprints. We can deliver a true Power Usage Effectiveness (PUE) of 1.2 to 1.3 which means higher efficiency and a lower cost.

DC BLOX helps you reduce IT costs in other ways too. By combining an efficient infrastructure, dense power and a larger rack size than traditional 42U, we allow you to maximize your IT platforms. Plus, you’ll get the most out of your computing equipment with everything on one rack and a network bandwidth at 100Gbps. That means fewer stranded resources and less data center gray space which reduces “data center sprawl.”

Finally, A Data Center Colocation Consumption Model that Makes Sense

For years, traditional colocation centers have charged a fixed-fee for limited services – no matter how little power you use, and metered power has typically been available only to clients who consume a minimum of 500kW.

At DC BLOX, we’re bringing personalization to colocation with programs that fit your company’s power usage. Pay only for the services your company uses and allow your fees to fluctuate accordingly, or opt for a fixed-fee and service structure for more predictable billing.

For added peace of mind, you can even elect to reserve power, allowing you to keep capacity on standby and release it when your consumption spikes.

Whether you’re looking for a data center in Atlanta, Georgia, Chattanooga, Tennessee, Huntsville, Alabama, or Birmingham, AL, call us today and let’s talk about how we can develop a colocation program to help you succeed.
