Multi-tenant data center provider DC BLOX has announced the launch of its new channel partner program.

The company is actively growing its program and recruiting new partners, specifically those that are looking to expand their customer base throughout the Southeastern US. Value-added resellers (VARs), managed service providers (MSPs), systems integrators and agents are being encouraged to leverage the company's flexible partner participation levels and revenue earning options.

“The channel partner program is a strategic component of DC BLOX's sales growth and increases the value we provide to our customers,” says DC BLOX chief revenue officer Rick Williams.

“Spearheading the internal team at DC BLOX is Benny Middleton, who has been appointed the director of partner channel sales. Benny is a seasoned sales veteran who will align the company's resources to support this growing sales channel.

As data centers around the world continue their steady move to the edge of the network, DC BLOX says it remains committed to meeting the infrastructure needs of businesses in emerging and underserved markets throughout the Southeastern US where availability of Tier 3 data centers and rich connectivity are limited.

Having more partners on board, the company says, will help to provide value-added and managed services to enable solutions that address an even broader set of those markets' needs.

“With our fourth data center opening soon in Birmingham, AL, DC BLOX continues to grow, and aligning with partners who know these markets and can provide complete infrastructure and management solutions to our shared customers is core to our regional strategy,” says DC BLOX CEO Jeff Uphues.

One of these partners is Tier4 Advisors, which founder - chairman Jake Sherrill is quite excited about.

“Tier4 has over 650 vendor-partners in our proprietary global database and most of them focus solely on the larger markets worldwide. DC BLOX's offerings of Tier 3 data centers in smaller markets fills a void we've seen in the data center space for a very long time now,” says Sherill.

“We're excited to watch DC BLOX continue to grow, adding many new markets in the coming years, and execute on their vision of giving smaller cities enterprise-grade data center services.

DC BLOX says the introduction of this new channel partner program will support its mission of meeting the needs of businesses embracing digital transformation by providing the expertise and services needed to succeed.
