The Open Cloud Exchange® (OCX) enables deploying high-performance hybrid architectures faster, more securely and at a lower total cost of operation than alternative solutions.
The Open Cloud Exchange…
Since launching the Open Cloud Exchange in 2013 – the first platform of its kind – CoreSite has continually looked for ways to improve this platform and help companies modernize networks as they deploy more complex architectures.
Establish fully managed, direct connections to cloud service providers and SaaS providers across Layer 2 and Layer 3 on the OCX (now available)
Provide rapid and secure connectivity between remote premises and colocation (launching in 2022)
Facilitate traffic directly between multiple clouds (now available)
Turning up services can be slow and expensive. Moving traffic between cloud providers is time-consuming. Turn up connections in days rather than months and automate peering.
Businesses lack in-house expertise on network-to-network connectivity (i.e. WAN). The enhanced OCX automates layer 2 connectivity PLUS network-to-network connectivity.
Engineers who have the knowledge to maintain and provision connectivity are expensive. With the enhanced OCX, you only need to provide basic information to stand up end-to-end connections. CoreSite provides virtual router capabilities, so there is no investment in routing equipment.
By virtualizing and automating complex network functions, the Open Cloud Exchange® (OCX) enables enterprises, network providers and IT service providers to connect and deliver solutions to an ever-expanding digital ecosystem.
The OCX works by providing a single port into our Layer 2 Ethernet switching platform, enabling private virtual connections (VLANs) to multiple service providers. Provisioning is done in real time with a virtual router solution, through a private online portal.
This fully managed solution creates secure, high-bandwidth direct connectivity to leading public clouds, network service providers, data centers, and corporate offices to improve application performance and reduce network costs.
Access leading public cloud service providers via secure, high performance connections. Learn more about services such as AWS Direct Connect, Microsoft Azure ExpressRoute, Google Cloud Platform, Oracle FastConnect and Alibaba Cloud.
