DENVER--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Aug. 9, 2017-- CoreSite Realty Corporation (NYSE:COR), a premier provider of secure, reliable, high-performance data center and interconnection solutions across the U.S., today announced that it has joined forces with Tata Communications, a leading global provider of network, cloud, security and mobility services. Under the relationship, Tata Communications and its global communications and technology teams will have access to CoreSite’s data center and interconnection solutions across the U.S. Expanding its cloud and managed hosting services in the U.S. market through CoreSite is part of Tata Communications’ strategy of facilitating its customers’ digital transformation without increasing total cost of ownership.
CoreSite provides an exceptional customer experience and the flexibility to address the requirements of Tata Communications’ end customers. With this new relationship, CoreSite’s data center solutions teams will become extensions of Tata Communications’ team to support its managed hosting and IZO™ cloud enablement platform in the U.S. As part of this relationship, Tata Communications has deployed a new IZO™ Private Cloud node in CoreSite’s NY2 data center in New Jersey to support U.S. enterprises’ adoption of hybrid cloud securely and flexibly.
The fully-managed, highly secure IZO™ Private Cloud gives CIOs unprecedented control over all their applications by creating a truly hybrid, high-performance IT infrastructure where different cloud, colocation and managed hosting environments work together as one. Through IZO™ Private Cloud, U.S. enterprises also have access to IZO™ Cloud Storage to store unlimited volumes of data in an always available, highly durable and fully secure environment. Working with CoreSite will expand Tata Communications’ data center capacity by 2.2 million square feet across 8 of the largest data center markets in the U.S.
“Working with CoreSite helps us support our customers as they look to drive their digital transformation through the cloud – be it private or hybrid,” said Gaurav Anand, Vice President, Strategic Partnerships and Global Alliances at Tata Communications. “This relationship provides our customers with end-to-end service assurances and easier access to the U.S. market, which will translate into faster time to market, simpler management, and guaranteed uniform service levels across all locations.”
“We are excited to announce this expanded relationship with Tata Communications, a leading global technology and telecom player, extending our reach of potential end customers that now may use our services,” said Steve Smith, Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing at CoreSite. “We look forward to working together, as we continue to build out our high-performance, cloud-enabled data center solutions and network of partners to provide our customers with diverse connectivity options in a highly secure and reliable operating environment.”
