Denver, CO – December 15, 2022 – CoreSite, a leading hybrid IT solutions provider and subsidiary of American Tower Corporation (NYSE: AMT) (“American Tower”) and member of Oracle PartnerNetwork (OPN), today announced it is offering connectivity services to Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI) via FastConnect at its Chicago data center campus. Customers can harness the power of OCI locally to unlock innovation and drive business growth. In addition, CoreSite’s Chicago campus will be a key interconnection point for the Oracle Cloud Chicago Region with FastConnect.
CoreSite offers direct and virtual connectivity through the Open Cloud Exchange to OCI via FastConnect, supporting up to 10 Gbps at its Chicago campus. FastConnect helps provide consistent network performance and low-latency for applications with relational database back-ends that are particularly vulnerable to latency and require predictable performance. Additionally, when transferring large amounts of data – for example, running batch jobs or analyzing real-time queries – high-performance and low-latency are critical.
“Reliable connectivity is essential for high-performance computing workloads,” said Yogesh Kaushik, VP of product management for networking services, Oracle Cloud Infrastructure. “With OCI FastConnect, customers can harness the power of dedicated and private connections with predictable performance to easily scale with their growing business requirements.”
With dedicated connections, FastConnect provides the high throughput and consistency required for data-intensive applications. This integrated solution isolates sensitive data traffic and improves security and privacy as the data traffic flows strictly over trusted endpoints. CoreSite customers, including financial services, e-commerce, and manufacturing enterprises, can securely extend their production networks to OCI via low-latency, high-bandwidth interconnects to meet increasing business demands.
“Oracle FastConnect enables customers to bypass the public internet and connect directly to OCI and other Oracle services,” said Juan Font, President and CEO of CoreSite, SVP of U.S. Towers. “With direct connectivity to OCI available at CoreSite’s cloud-enabled Chicago campus, customers have access to a flexible, economical, and private connection to higher bandwidth options for their hybrid cloud architectures.”
