The CoreSite Mesh community provides immediate and diverse connectivity and storage options for impacted Nirvanix customers
DENVER, Sept. 26, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- CoreSite Realty Corporation (NYSE: COR), a premier provider of network-dense, cloud-enabled data center solutions and the CoreSite Mesh, is assisting customers affected by the publicly announced Nirvanix shutdown to find alternate cloud and storage options from the hundreds of other options deployed in and across its data center platform. News of the closure was widely reported in telecommunications industry media.
Nirvanix, an enterprise cloud storage provider colocated with multiple data center providers, including CoreSite's One Wilshire campus in Los Angeles, publicly announced last week that it would discontinue service on October 15. CoreSite immediately began working with impacted Nirvanix customers to find and establish direct connections with alternate providers within its data centers and initiate migrations across its CoreSite Mesh community to those alternate providers, such as Amazon Web Services, Synoptek, and others. CoreSite is also working hand-in-hand with its community of system integrators to provide alternative storage solutions for one of its large enterprise customers.
The CoreSite Mesh provides an extensive community of hundreds of networks, content companies, cloud players, IT providers and enterprises, interconnecting in and through its data center campuses. This community allows Nirvanix customers to quickly and effectively transfer their data to an optimal solution with other providers colocated in the same CoreSite data center campus.
"Hundreds of Nirvanix customers are faced with the task of moving vast amounts of mission-critical data to other cloud storage providers in very little time," said Jarrett Appleby, Chief Operating Office at CoreSite. "We are working to provide a premium customer experience for both our customers and our customers' customers to ensure their uptime and ongoing business success."
Customers impacted by the Nirvanix shutdown can contact CoreSite at 866-777-CORE or email@example.com to work with a CoreSite technical expert and discuss migration options.
