Government IT initiatives, such as The Cloud Smart Strategy and Data Center Optimization Initiative (DCOI) are driving agencies in the Public Sector toward Data Center Modernization.

Access to the CoreSite environment that supports FISMA and FedRAMP compliance helps transform and modernize digital business with the components for the most agile, dynamic infrastructure that can be adapted as government policy and requirements change.
