DENVER--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Aug. 2, 2012-- CoreSite Realty Corporation (NYSE: COR), a national provider of powerful, network-rich data centers, today announced a newly established relationship with Amsterdam Internet Exchange (AMS-IX), which will result in direct access to the AMS-IX peering exchange from multiple CoreSite locations across the U.S. The AMS-IX relationship forms part of CoreSite’s Open Internet Exchange Hub, the purpose of which is to aggregate the interconnection capabilities of the world’s leading internet exchanges. This aggregation provides CoreSite customers with expanded peering opportunities through a simple connection to leading internet exchanges throughout the world.
Internet exchanges allow organizations to directly connect their internet infrastructure through a stable, fast, and cost-effective fabric for ecosystems such as network, digital content, and cloud.

Through the addition of AMS-IX to CoreSite’s Open Internet Exchange Hub, a CoreSite customer now can extend its network connectivity with a single contract from multiple facilities throughout the U.S., including Los Angeles; Chicago; New York; Denver; Washington, DC; Northern Virginia; and the San Francisco Bay Area.
“We are focused on bringing solutions to our customers that increase interconnection options through an open-exchange platform,” stated Eric Bell, General Manager, Network and Interconnection, at CoreSite. “The AMS-IX enabled program provides CoreSite’s Open Internet Exchange customers simplified access to one of Europe’s leading internet exchanges. It brings best-of-breed providers together to deliver dense interconnection ecosystems and diversity in the U.S. market.”
Job Witteman, Chief Executive Officer at AMS-IX, added, “AMS-IX is looking forward to expanding interconnection options to locations outside of Europe. We see CoreSite as an important resource, helping us to realize our vision to reach networks within the U.S. The network density seen at CoreSite’s One Wilshire campus and other facilities provides the optimal platform to achieve that goal.”
