The continued growth and expansion of the CoreSite Reston campus provides our customer community with the immediate benefits of a rich ecosystem of natively deployed networks, cloud on-ramps and solution partners. The facilities at the Reston campus represent the gold standard of cloud connectivity and deliver the highest possible security and performance, complimented by the lowest cost of cloud service utilization.

With over 100MW at full build, and the multi-cloud capabilities of the CoreSite platform, these facilities are in a position to deliver the maximum degree of scale, operational flexibility and performance throughout the entire lifecycle of our customers’ digital transformation journey. Additionally, the location in Fairfax County allows access to native base of enterprises, systems integrators, universities and governmental agencies with the lowest latency possible to large public clouds.

A warm thank you to Bobbie Kilberg, President and CEO of the Northern Virginia Technology Council for joining us and providing her perspective with the opening remarks and participating in the ribbon-cutting ceremony.

We would be remiss if we didn’t show our appreciation to Hunter Mill District Supervisor Hudgins and her team for her unwavering support of CoreSite over the years. We are also very thankful for the resourcefulness and commitment of the Fairfax Land Development Services team, as well as the Economic Development Authority.
