DENVER--(BUSINESS WIRE)--May 7, 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 it has achieved Amazon Web Services (AWS) Networking Competency status as well as Advanced Technology Partner status in the AWS Partner Network (APN). With the achievement of this new designation, CoreSite is able to provide a more robust portfolio of network solutions to assist its customers in adopting, developing, and deploying applications on AWS.

Achieving the AWS Networking Competency differentiates CoreSite as an Advanced APN member that provides specialized demonstrated technical proficiency and proven customer success with specific focus on Network Visibility and Management. To receive the designation, APN Partners must possess deep AWS expertise and deliver solutions seamlessly on AWS.

“CoreSite is proud to have achieved AWS Networking Competency status, providing our customers with efficient and seamless connectivity to the suite of AWS services,” said Gerry Fassig, Vice President of Sales, Cloud & Hosting at CoreSite. “Through our collaboration with AWS since the initial Direct Connect deployments in Los Angeles in 2012, CoreSite remains committed to providing our customers direct and private connectivity to strategic cloud providers, increasing performance, reliability, and security in a cost-efficient manner.”

AWS is enabling scalable, flexible, and cost-effective solutions from startups to global enterprises. To support the seamless integration and deployment of these solutions, AWS established the AWS Partner Competency Program to help customers identify Consulting and Technology APN Partners with deep industry experience and expertise.

AWS Direct Connect can be accessed in all eight of CoreSite’s markets, through fiber interconnects or flexible on-demand connectivity through the CoreSite Open Cloud Exchange. Additionally, CoreSite customers can connect through one of its network collaborations. AWS has deployed native AWS Direct Connect on-ramps in five CoreSite markets: Los Angeles, Silicon Valley, Denver, New York and Northern Virginia – offering customers the full suite of connectivity options including 1G and 10G fiber interconnects or AWS Hosted Connections through the CoreSite Open Cloud Exchange. Native deployments provide the lowest latency connections with the fewest network hops – which delivers the most secure solution when building hybrid networks.

AWS is a member of the CoreSite Marketplace, which provides a dynamic web-enabled interface, where CoreSite customers can learn of other service providers, how they can benefit from one another, and engage easily to support their IT strategy. These services include network providers, cloud on-ramps, managed service providers, and software providers. To learn more about AWS on CoreSite Marketplace, visit
