DartPoints is expanding its Greenville, South Carolina data center in a move that will benefit the local business community, offering access to improved security and safety at the facility, the company says.
DartPoints has been actively investing in the South Carolina and Upstate region to support the growing technology ecosystem and provide a “world-class” experience to the local enterprises, executives said.
“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, DartPoints’ CEO. “This expansion not only strengthens the state’s internet connectivity ecosystem but also boosts the local economy as a whole. South Carolinians have faced a concerning digital divide and a lack of high-performing internet infrastructure. We’re proud to fill those gaps for residents we’ve loved serving for the past 15 years.”
Located at 78 Global Drive in Greenville’s Global Business Park, the DartPoints team will be adding a power room and electrical service entrance area to accommodate 17,000 additional square feet. The upgrades to electrical systems include switchgear, generators, and electrical distribution for the facility.
DarkPoints’ Greenville data center is an enterprise-grade facility offering disaster recovery locations with a low risk of disasters, access to low-cost utilities, and an experienced IT workforce. The Greenville facility provides cloud services, colocation and data center services, managed services, disaster recovery, and liquid edge HPC. The physical security at this DartPoint facility is SOC 2 Type 2 compliant security with 24×7 on-site personnel and card key and biometric access.

The edge data center operator has a strategically located facility to serve the extended coverage for multiple edge locations.
“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,” said South Carolina Governor Henry McMaster. “We’re grateful for DartPoints’ commitment to investing in South Carolinians and doing its important, innovative work in Greenville.”
Earlier this year, DartPoints appointed Jackie Steinberg, a former regional partner development manager at AT&T, to expand the company’s relations with the channel community. The new role of channel chief will allow Steinberg to build long-term collaboration to streamline DartPoints’ channel sales function.
