The Challenge

  • Gain flexibility and greater control over infrastructure configuration
  • Reduce operating costs, especially bandwidth expenditures
  • Rapidly scale to meet the needs of a growing business
  • Move massive amounts of data quickly between data centers and AWS

The Solution

  • Leverage CoreSite cage colocation for high-density, cost-effective storage and computing services
  • Use AWS Direct Connect and dark fiber ring to rapidly and cost-effectively transmit large data sets between data centers

The Outcomes

  • Reduced overall costs by as much as half
  • Achieved 10Gbps connectivity between app development environment and data centers
  • Significantly reduced bandwidth demands and bypassed traditional ISP bandwidth costs
  • Achieved total control over infrastructure arrangement and configuration by deploying a self-managed cluster

“One of the things I love most about working with CoreSite is the willingness of the entire organization to work with us to creatively address every challenge we have. Knowing that they’ll go out of the way to address our needs makes my job easier because I can focus on the day-to-day operations instead of always worrying about potential issues.”
