The DC BLOX opening of the Birmingham data center on July 11, 2019 is seen as key to accelerating economic growth in the city of Birmingham and the state overall. This article exemplifies DC BLOX’s vision to Serve Locally and Connect Globally.
The Birmingham facility provides access to the company’s full range of services including cloud storage, colocation and rich connectivity and will serve as a technology and innovation hub for the surrounding area.
Excerpt from the article:
When DC BLOX officially opened the first phase of its multi-tenant data center on Sixth Street South in Titusville earlier this month in Birmingham, CEO Jeff Uphues said the company’s vision was simple: serve locally and connect globally.
Locally meant Birmingham’s historic Titusville neighborhood, home to such luminaries as former U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice. The DC BLOX data center project has the potential to be a $785 million investment over the next 10 years and is capable of expanding to more than 200,000 square feet.
“Our vision of serving locally and connecting globally takes on a shared purpose when [people] can work together toward a common goal,” Uphues said. “We commit to you—the people of Birmingham, the community of Titusville, and the state of Alabama—that we’ll continue to do our part … and embrace our community and new neighbors.”
