Excerpt from the article:
Colocation provider DC Blox has bought land for a data center and office campus in Birmingham, Alabama. Once launched, it will be the company’s fourth location out of 19 it plans to build across secondary markets in the Southeastern US. The company plans to always have two new projects underway until it meets its goal.
The colocation provider is targeting local and regional businesses in markets like Louisville, Kentucky, and Augusta, Georgia, bigger companies looking for edge locations in such markets, and companies with primary data centers in big markets like Dallas and Chicago needing backup sites nearby.
