DC BLOX Gets Contract with City of Birmingham, AL

DC BLOX, a provider of interconnected multi-tenant data centers that delivers the infrastructure and connectivity essential to power today´s digital business, is proud to announce that it has been awarded a contract by the City of Birmingham, Alabama, to increase the reliability, agility and security of its core IT infrastructure, the company said.

DC BLOX will provide vital colocation space, power and network connectivity in support of the City´s digital transformation, business continuity and disaster recovery plans.

The IT systems supporting the City of Birmingham´s Software Development, Operations, Telecommunications, and IT Governance services were housed in an on-premises location in Birmingham´s City Hall. The building, built in 1950, was unable to be retrofitted to meet expanded IT requirements. In addition, the City of Birmingham has plans to digitize many of its existing information systems and processes, modernizing its technology to meet evolving demands and enhancing service delivery for its residents.

As the partner chosen to meet the City´s digital transformation and business continuity goals, DC BLOX was selected for its secure, reliable Tier III-designed data center and its robust connectivity ecosystem. DC BLOX´s Birmingham location is the only Tier III multi-tenant data center in Alabama certified by The Uptime Institute for its concurrently maintainable design, which ensures uninterrupted service through backup power generation in the event of the loss of utility power.

DC BLOX builds and operates interconnected multi-tenant data centers that deliver the infrastructure and connectivity essential to power today´s digital business. DC BLOX´s private network fabric and robust connectivity ecosystem enable access to built-in carriers, Internet exchanges, public cloud providers, and DC BLOX data centers to businesses across the Southeast. DC BLOX´s data centers are located in Atlanta, GA; Birmingham, AL; Huntsville, AL; and Chattanooga, TN. For more information, visit www.dcblox.com,
