DENVER--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Mar. 24, 2014-- CoreSite Realty Corporation a provider of secure, reliable, high-performance data center solutions, today announced that the company’s Open Cloud Exchange, an API-accessible, real-time cloud management portal, has grown to 22 partners since its launch in January 2013. Companies that recently have joined Open Cloud Exchange include enterprise-class storage provider Zadara™ Storage, cloud infrastructure provider iland, and DDoS mitigation specialist Black Lotus. As the list of providers grows, CoreSite’s customers gain greater choice and flexibility for their deployments, while lowering the total cost of connecting to multiple service providers.
“CoreSite’s Open Cloud Exchange is a valuable new channel for our industry-leading enterprise storage-as-a-service offering,” said Nelson Nahum, CEO of Zadara Storage. “We are delighted to join the Open Cloud Exchange to support the many enterprises that need our unique and fully-featured on-demand Virtual Private Storage Arrays service.”
CoreSite’s Open Cloud Exchange gives users one-to-many Ethernet switching capabilities to create a virtual “on-ramp” to solutions from specific cloud and network providers within CoreSite’s cloud-enabled data center campuses. The Open Cloud Exchange thereby creates a community of interconnected enterprises and cloud and network service providers whose members benefit from improved performance, added security and access to a marketplace of buyers and sellers located in data center campuses across the country. Additionally, API access marks a significant milestone for data center cloud environments by simplifying the way businesses can connect to the networks and cloud solution providers on the Open Cloud Exchange through their own native systems and software.
“A cloud environment is only as good as its underlying community,” said Brian Warren, Senior Vice President of Marketing and Product Management at CoreSite. “The addition of brand name service providers such as Zadara Storage, iLand and others is a testament to the growing diversity and strength of our Open Cloud Exchange.”
