AWS Direct Connect Now Available at CoreSite’s Miami Facility through the CoreSite Open Cloud Exchange and Metro InterSite Connectivity

DENVER--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Nov. 29, 2018-- CoreSite Realty Corporation (NYSE:COR), a premier provider of secure, reliable, high-performance data center and interconnection solutions across the U.S., today announced CoreSite’s Miami facility as an additional location to offer Amazon Web Services (AWS) Direct Connect. Through the CoreSite Open Cloud Exchange or via Metro InterSite connectivity, customers can directly access AWS cloud services over a private, enterprise-grade network connection. The benefits of direct access include low-latency connectivity, enhanced network security, reliable network performance, and significantly reduced data transfer costs.

With this expansion, CoreSite customers have private access to all commercial AWS Regions in the United States across all eight CoreSite markets using the CoreSite Open Cloud Exchange, Metro InterSite, or through fiber cross connects. Through the variety of connectivity options into AWS, CoreSite is able to support service rates from 50Mbps up to 10Gbps.

“At CoreSite we are focused on enabling our enterprise customers to easily and efficiently adopt and deploy hybrid- and multi-cloud solutions by providing reliable, high-performance connectivity solutions,” said Gerry Fassig, Vice President of Sales, Cloud & Hosting at CoreSite.

CoreSite is an Advanced Tier Technology Partner in the AWS Partner Network (APN) and has been providing CoreSite customers with AWS Direct Connect services since 2011. AWS Direct Connect provides a dedicated network connection between an Enterprise’s network and an AWS Direct Connect location. CoreSite customers can privately access AWS Direct Connect through a cross connection or through high-performance, SLA-backed virtual connections via the CoreSite Open Cloud Exchange. AWS Direct Connect provides a private, low-latency alternative to connecting over the public internet or backhauling from a corporate data center. AWS offers compute power, database storage, and content delivery along with access to over 70 products, including AWS Direct Connect, to enable hybrid-IT solutions.

CoreSite's Miami facility provides connectivity from the U.S. to South America and serves a diverse community of customers, including enterprises, domestic and international carriers, CDNs, cloud computing and IT service providers. Additionally, CoreSite’s Miami facility is built to withstand a Category 5 hurricane. CoreSite’s stringent security criteria, reliable uptime and preparedness processes were put to the test during Hurricane Irma and our data center and team of experts proved effective, with no impact to customer infrastructure.
