Today, DartPoints, a cutting-edge digital infrastructure provider, announced an expansion and significant electrical enhancements at its data center in Greenville, South Carolina. In addition to modernizing electrical equipment, such as switchgear, generators, and electrical distribution, the team is building a power room and electrical service entrance space that can hold 17,000 extra square feet. The improvements will help the local business community of Greenville by bringing much-needed local digital infrastructure, enhancing security and safety at the site, and enabling speedy future expansion.
This project demonstrates DartPoint's ongoing commitment to South Carolina and the Upstate. Since 2007, DartPoints has aided Greenville's expanding technological community by giving top-notch support to regional companies, enhancing network performance and connectivity, and establishing itself as a pillar of the neighborhood.
"This investment reinforces our dedication to continuing to serve as the colocation, cloud, security, and data backup leader in Greenville and the Upstate region. 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," said Scott Willis, DartPoints CEO.
Enterprise-class building with quick access to I-85 and I-385 is home to DartPoints' Greenville data center, which is situated at 78 Global Drive in the city's Global Business Park. Due to its low risk of natural catastrophes, thriving IT sector, availability of dependable and affordable utilities, and skilled IT workforce, Greenville makes an excellent choice for a data center and disaster recovery location.
"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."

The first public internet exchange in the state, Bridge IXTM from DartPoints, began operational in Columbia, South Carolina, in April. Internet traffic from South Carolina has typically been sent to the nearest large network markets, such as Atlanta and Charlotte, North Carolina. The goal of DartPoints South Carolina is to retain local traffic within the state to enhance network performance and resilience and save connectivity costs.
