Our Atlanta Data Center: Keeping Atlanta Hot
DC BLOX chose Atlanta, GA for its growing diverse economy in industries such as logistics, professional and business services, media operations, and information technology. The city is also where 17 Fortune 500 companies including Coca Cola, Home Depot, Delta Airlines and Mercedes Benz call home.
Atlanta is the capital and most populous city in Georgia and the ninth largest metropolitan area in the United States. It ranks 40th among world cities and 8th in the nation with a gross domestic product of $270 billion. This southern metro area is the primary transit hub of the Southeastern United States and its Hartsfield–Jackson Atlanta International Airport has been the world’s busiest airport since 1998. Atlanta hosted the 1996 Olympics in Atlanta, altering the city’s demographics, politics, and culture into the 21st century.
Located in the Brookhaven area, DC BLOX’s Atlanta data center delivers safe, convenient access for telecommunications, media and technology companies. Just 1MS away from the Digital Realty’s ATL1 IX at 56 Marietta, it’s a low overhead, colocation node on the DC BLOX high speed optical network.
