Edge digital infrastructure provider, DartPoints, has announced the expansion and electrical upgrades of its data center located at 78 Global Drive in Greenville, South Carolina.

Through this expansion project, DartPoints is adding a power room and electrical service entrance area that can accommodate up to 17,000 additional square feet of data center space, while also updating electrical systems, including switchgear, generators and electrical distribution.

“This investment reinforces our dedication to continuing to serve as the colocation, cloud, security, and data backup leader in Greenville and the Upstate region,” said Scott Willis, Chief Executive Officer of DartPoints.

“This expansion not only strengthens the state’s internet connectivity ecosystem, but it also boosts the local economy as a whole. South Carolinians have been faced with a concerning digital divide and lack of high-performing internet infrastructure, and we’re proud to fill those gaps for local residents that we’ve loved serving for the past 15 years.”

The data center upgrades and expansion follow DartPoints’ recent announcement that its Bridge IX™ — the first public internet exchange in the state — has become operational in Columbia, South Carolina.

“We’ve worked hard to create a business-friendly environment in our state because it means companies come here, invest in our communities, and ultimately improve the quality of life for our people, and that’s exactly what DartPoints has done in their 15 years in South Carolina. We’re grateful for DartPoints’ commitment to investing in South Carolinians and doing its important, innovative work in Greenville,” said Henry McMaster, Governor of South Carolina.

About a year ago, DartPoints significantly expanded its portfolio through the acquisition of 8 data centers that belonged to Immedion, a provider of colocation, cloud, and data center services with facilities across South Carolina, North Carolina, Ohio and Indiana. The acquisition more than doubled DartPoints’ edge colocation data center footprint across Seven Edge markets, expanding the company’s solutions in about six states across the US.
