IT infrastructures are increasingly distributed. Data centers serve as the center for interconnection, cost-effective environments for hosting and developing enterprise applications and bolstering business resilience. Laying a foundation for the future, interconnection enables a conduit for funneling data key to artificial intelligence and establishes reliability essential for cloud-native applications.

Outsourcing infrastructure reduces costs for power and cooling. Capital expenses for building, maintaining and securing facilities are eliminated. CoreSite direct connections to clouds significantly cut data egress and broadband expenses.

Colocation enables you to shift to an operational expense business model, still amortize capital investments and, in some states, qualify for tax incentives.

CoreSite data centers are purpose-built to support your intensifying IT requirements and data processing demands. Data centers are getting bigger, more dense and more power-hungry. For most organizations, relying on an on-premises data center doesn’t ensure the flexibility or scalability needed to keep pace with objectives, or competitors.

Digital transformation means there is more enterprise, business partner and customer data to protect. Keeping up on evolving operational and data integrity compliance regulations is challenging. CoreSite data centers are audited annually to show they meet requirements around processes, employee training, technical operations, incident management, use of best practices and security controls.

Frequently Asked Questions

WHAT IS COLOCATION? A colocation data center is a facility that offers space with the proper power, cooling, network access and security to host businesses’ computing hardware and servers. This capacity includes anything from cabinets to cages to private suites.
WHAT ARE REMOTE HANDS SERVICES? In addition to power, cooling, network connectivity and security, colocation providers typically offer IT equipment installation and other similar services that are performed by data center operations personnel. CoreSite also offers cabling and wiring services including making cross connections, physical links between customers and clouds.
WHAT IS A CARRIER HOTEL? Colocation data centers are sometimes referred to as “carrier hotels” because many telecommunications services providers (carriers) install networking equipment in them enabling interconnection, often between long-haul carriers and metro-carriers, using the facilities as centralized locations to exchange data.
WHAT IS A MEET-ME ROOM? A meet-me room (MMR) is a place in a data center where multiple telecommunications companies (carriers) and network service providers (NSPs) interconnect, ensuring seamless transfer of data between colocation clients and carriers, including internet traffic.
DO THIRD-PARTY DATA CENTERS HOST CLOUDS? Yes, colocation data centers can host clouds. Customers in data centers install their infrastructure equipment there, including servers that can deliver cloud capabilities. 
WHAT IS CLOUD OR APPLICATION REPATRIATION? Cloud (or application) repatriation is the practice of retrieving applications or workloads from public clouds and moving them back into an on-premises data center or a third-party data center.
