DENVER--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Nov. 28, 2016-- 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 Advanced Technology Partner status in the Amazon Web Services (AWS) Partner Network (APN). CoreSite is one of the first data center providers to achieve this designation from AWS, further validating the strength of its secure and reliable cloud solutions.
The APN is the global partner program of AWS, focusing on helping partners build a successful AWS-based business by providing technical, marketing, and go-to-market support. As an Advanced Technology Partner, CoreSite will gain access to a variety of tools, training, and support to further enhance its AWS Direct Connect offering. To achieve Advanced Technology Partner status, CoreSite had to meet stringent requirements and pass an AWS technical review.
AWS Direct Connect is now directly available in four CoreSite markets with deployments in Los Angeles, New York/New Jersey, Silicon Valley and Northern Virginia. Additionally, access to AWS Direct Connect is available in five major markets through CoreSite's Open Cloud Exchange.
AWS Direct Connect provides a dedicated network connection between an Enterprise's network and an AWS Direct Connect location. CoreSite customers can access AWS Direct Connect through a cross connection or through elastic on-demand connectivity via the CoreSite Open Cloud Exchange. Once connected, Enterprises can establish a high-capacity, secure connection to the entire suite of AWS cloud services, increasing the performance, reliability and security of AWS applications and workloads through a direct connection within CoreSite’s facilities. AWS offers compute power, storage, database services, content delivery, and other functionality to enable hybrid information technology (IT) solutions, allowing enterprises to move more workloads to cloud environments.
“We are very pleased to have achieved Advanced Technology Partner status,” said Brian Warren, senior vice president of product and engineering at CoreSite. “We remain committed to providing our customers with simple and reliable connectivity options to enable them to maximize their IT investments and realize the benefits of AWS.
