Network Availability, Application Performance, and Vertical Communities Drive Decision
DENVER, June 5, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- CoreSite Realty Corporation (NYSE: COR), a premier provider of network-dense, cloud-enabled data centers and the CoreSite Mesh, today announced that SunGard Availability Services has deployed at CoreSite's facility in Boston. SunGard Availability Services, one of the world's leading providers of information availability and disaster recovery services, is seeing expanded business opportunities in the New England region targeting leading heathcare, financial servces, retail and IT Services providers and selected CoreSite as a service partner to support this growth through a flexible, scalable data center solution for its customers. The agreement gives customers the combination of top-tier managed IT services from SunGard Availability Service and high-powered data center capacity, diverse network connectivity and CoreSite Mesh community members from CoreSite.
As a result of CoreSite's data center capacity in Boston, combined with an extensive carrier network (over 70 networks and more than 20 carriers and Internet Service Providers), SunGard Availability Services was able to quickly deploy nearly 10,000 feet of capacity as a turnkey data center solution for its customers. SunGard Availability Services' customers will immediately benefit from the improved application performance that comes from directly connecting to multiple networks, including connections to sub-sea cable assets providing a gateway to Europe, and the on-demand capacity available to augment their own data center resources.
SunGard Availability Services has seen strong growth in several of its key vertical markets and critical aspects of the CoreSite model will enable SunGard Availability Services to capitalize on that market growth in the Northeast region. Financial services is a focus for SunGard Availability Services and the proximity of the Boston facility combined with network density were important considerations given the latency and application performance requirements common for financial institutions. Additionally, CoreSite has achieved 99.9999% uptime, which addresses the critical reliability requirement necessary for SunGard Availability Services' customers, particularly in the growing healthcare vertical. Retail is also a focus for SunGard Availability Services' growth strategy and CoreSite provides the robust customer community needed by SunGard to capitalize on the expanding opportunity. All of SunGard Availability Services' customers will benefit from taking part in the CoreSite Mesh, the community of service providers and enterprises interconnecting in and through CoreSite's cloud-enabled data center campuses.
