The upgrades include the addition of a power room and electrical service entrance area that can accommodate 17,000 sq ft, as well as upgrading switchgear, generators and electrical distribution.

Dartpoints acquired acquired South Carolina based Immedion in 2021, giving it four data center in South Carolina including Immedion's headquarters in Greenville, as well as Charleston, Columbia and Spartanburg. Immedion previously hadexpanded, giving it facilities in in Cincinnati, Ohio, Columbus, Indiana, and Asheville, North Carolina.

"DartPoints has supported Greenville’s growing technology ecosystem since 2007," DartPoints' release claims (referring to its acquisition Immedion's foundation there in 2007).

“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 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 Immedion/DartPoints facility, in the city’s Global Business Park, offers disaster recovery space alongside enterprise data center services.

"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.”
