Colocation and interconnection have been inseparable since the beginning of the industry. Colocation provides a central meeting place for networks, clouds and enterprises to house their physical infrastructure and efficiently exchange traffic with one another. Interconnection services are the physical connections between those companies that enable this exchange of data. This is best achieved in a vendor-neutral data center with a large ecosystem of vendors colocated together.
When businesses create dedicated connections to one another within the same colocation data center - rather than connecting via a network outside of the data center - it reduces the distance that data has to travel, and ultimately, latency.
CoreSite data centers feature top Internet Exchanges such as AMS-IX, DE-CIX, LINX, NYIIX, United IX and BBIX, as well as our own CoreSite Any2Exchange® for Internet peering.
CoreSite cross connects provide access to a dynamic ecosystem of customer networks, facilitating traffic exchange, reinforcing network resiliency and enabling disaster recovery.
Blended IP combines multiple upstream ISP providers and local internet exchanges (including the CoreSite Any2Exchange®) in order get you the highest speed data transfer vs. a single internet carrier.
Inter-site connectivity creates a virtual extension between sites, allowing you to expand capacity or augment network access to enable growth within your region.
Virtual routers might very well be the unsung heroes of interconnection. We give them the spotlight in this post to point out how they can increase resources efficiency, lower your networking costs and accelerate ongoing IT modernization.Read moreSubscribe and Stay Informed
