Douglasville Hyperscale Data Center Campus (Coming Soon)
Connecting Globally with Hyperscale Ready Digital Infrastructure
The rapid growth of the Southeastern US and the desire of hyperscale and SaaS (Softwareas-a-Service) tech companies to deploy infrastructure closer to their consumers in the region is driving massive investments to expand digital infrastructure. The accelerating scale of digital communications and the need for richer user experiences in accessing content is driving demand for data center capacity across the region with Atlanta alone expecting over 1 gigawatt of absorption over the next 10 years.
DC BLOX Solution
DC BLOX is a leading vertically integrated digital infrastructure provider based in the Southeast that is aggressively addressing this opportunity. Currently, the company operates Tier III colocation data centers in Birmingham, AL, Chattanooga, TN, Greenville, SC and Huntsville, AL. New projects include a new Cable Landing Station (CLS) in Myrtle Beach, SC and a dark fiber route running from the Myrtle Beach CLS to Lithia Springs, GA.
DC BLOX is offering a hyperscale-ready data center campus referred to as Atlanta West located on 54 acres in Lithia Springs, GA next to Microsoft’s 300-acre facility and 2.5 miles from Google to meet the growing infrastructure needs in the area.

We have a proven track record in the delivery of greenfield, purpose-built facilities and are often relied upon to build new data centers on accelerated schedules.
In addition, with the acquisition of dark fiber assets and resources from Ascendant Capital Fiber and Light Source Communications, the ability to tailor custom digital infrastructure solutions to hyperscale and SaaS clients has been greatly extended.
Scalable designs that support success-based deployment from 1MW to 100MW+
All facilities designed and built to Uptime Institute Tier III requirements (Birmingham and Greenville certified)
Custom dark fiber route construction
Robust ecosystem of business partner and government relationships in the Southeast that facilitate rapid land acquisition, construction, operations, and connectivity
Well capitalized and supported by leading investors from Bain Capital and Post Road Group
Atlanta to Myrtle Beach Dark Fiber Route
Atlanta West is connected to DC BLOX’s dark fiber route connecting to Atlanta connectivity hubs at 56 Marietta and 180 Peachtree, and continuing through Augusta, nearby Charleston, and landing at the new DC BLOX Myrtle Beach Cable Landing Station.
DC BLOX has the design, construction, operations, networking, and security experience to meet the needs of today’s hyperscale and large-scale tech companies.
