As the North American Southeast continues to explode with opportunity and investments in digital infrastructure, DC BLOX plans to expand its reach with a seventh connected data center facility in the Southeast and new cable landing station (CLS) in Myrtle beach, SC.The new CLS will anchor subsea cable systems connecting the Southeast region with other continents. The DC BLOX CLS will be designed to withstand Category 5 hurricanes andis engineered to Uptime Institute’s Tier III standards. The future CLS will also be SOC 2 Type II and NIST 800-171 compliant. The power generation configurations include up to 15 MW of AC power with managed rectifiers for DC Power Feed Equipment (PFE). When complete, the facility will be connected to five pre-positioned subsea bore pipes configured for up to five subsea cables. In addition, traditional colocation for communications providers, local enterprises, governments, and customer partner networks will be available. The CLS design assures concurrently maintainable 2N power generation, UPS and switchgear, with indirect adiabatic and evaporation cooling for efficiency and sustainability with N+1 redundancy.
The Myrtle Beach CLS, to be located in the International Technology and Aerospace Park (ITAP), will be DC BLOX’s second location in South Carolina. DC BLOX plans for its new CLS to be completed in the second quarter of 2023. DC BLOX’s continued investments in data centers and network infrastructure is a benefit to hyperscalers, carriers, and enterprises across the region. DC BLOX continues to scale and realize their vision to service locally and connect globally.
