Data centre provider DC BLOX is partnering with is MicroCorp, a distributor of telecoms, cloud and data centre services, as a part of its channel partner program.

As a result of the collaboration, DC BLOX is now an official supplier partner to the MicroCorp ecosystem of partners and MicroCorp was selected due to its extensive Southeastern coverage and strong data centre presence.

“Adding this strategic data centre provider will significantly increase our partners’ solution offerings to their customers,” said Sean Patrick Tario, VP MicroCorp Cloud. “MicroCorp looks forward to winning together with DC BLOX.”

By tapping into DC BLOX’s footprint which is largely concentrated in the South East of the US in traditionally underserved cities, enables MicroCorp’s partners to use new data centre options for their clients. Additionally, this partnership will significantly expand the DC BLOX channel program, enabling the company to sell colocation, connectivity and cloud storage services through MicroCorp’s large partner team.

“We are very excited to become a MicroCorp data centre partner,” said Rick Williams, chief revenue officer, DC BLOX. “MicroCorp’s increasing focus and expertise in the data centre market, combined with DC BLOX’s strategic focus on building data centres in Tier 2 cities across the Southeast, will bring significant value to MicroCorp’s partners.”
