Colocation Services for Digital Business

Digital transformation is driving rapid changes in IT infrastructure strategies and IT executives have a lot of options to consider. While many workloads / applications are moving to the cloud, there are important reasons why colocation remains a critical part of your IT strategy.

DC BLOX Colocation Services will help your business to:

  • Improve reliability and uptime
  • Enhance business continuity and disaster recovery
  • Enable hybrid cloud and enhance access to public cloud providers
  • Facilitate consolidation of company-owned data centers
  • Increase network bandwidth and connectivity

DC BLOX builds secure, reliable Tier III data centers in markets where such facilities have not previously been available. There is no longer a need to build and maintain your own data centers or to drive to the nearest major metropolitan area to get the colocation services your business needs. With concurrently maintainable redundant power and cooling systems; resilient network connectivity over our private network; and efficient cloud storage in each facility, DC BLOX protects your IT infrastructure and data at the edge and keeps it running.
