Tennessee Tier III Colocation

The DC BLOX Chattanooga data center is strategically located within 150 miles of major metropolitan areas, so surrounding cities like Atlanta, Knoxville and Nashville can benefit from Chattanooga’s Gig. Its location also makes it an ideal Disaster Recovery site to businesses in nearby cities.

DC BLOX’s Chattanooga (CHA1) data center serves local businesses in the “Gig City” while offering those in Atlanta, Memphis, Knoxville and Nashville a Tier III Tennessee colocation facility directly linked to the Smart Grid – an intelligent, self-healing system that reroutes power around problem areas ensuring virtually zero power outages.

The Chattanooga data center is equipped with redundant, high-speed connectivity to Internet Exchanges, other DC BLOX data centers and public cloud providers, enabling enterprises to scale their systems, transform their digital business and protect their data.

DC BLOX chose Chattanooga, the fourth largest city in Tennessee, as one of its first Tennessee colocation facilities because of its geographical location and population and industry growth. Chattanooga’s economy is diversified between manufacturing, distribution, tourism and hospitality services, and an emerging high-tech startup industry. DC BLOX’s Chattanooga data center location also makes it an ideal Disaster Recovery site to businesses in nearby cities.
