DENVER--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Sep. 22, 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 the availability of direct, private connectivity into Microsoft Azure via ExpressRoute from CoreSite’s New York data center campus. Microsoft Azure ExpressRoute connectivity is now available in two of CoreSite’s markets, including the deployment of Azure ExpressRoute in CoreSite’s Los Angeles data center campus in 2015.

CoreSite customers in New York may now connect directly to Microsoft Azure via the CoreSite Open Cloud Exchange, which provides private, security-enhanced virtual connections and on-demand provisioning. The integration of Azure ExpressRoute and the CoreSite Open Cloud Exchange provides customers with a dedicated and reliable high-performance connectivity solution.

With direct connectivity to Microsoft Azure via ExpressRoute, CoreSite customers in New York and Los Angeles can establish secure, high-performance connectivity to Microsoft Azure over a reliable enterprise-grade network. Microsoft Azure is a growing collection of integrated cloud services, including analytics, computing, database, mobile, networking, storage and web.

“With the expansion of direct connectivity to Microsoft Azure in our New York data center campus, we are providing our customers with access to a leading cloud provider via direct, private connections that bypass the public Internet, offering more reliability, faster speeds, lower latencies and higher security than typical Internet connections,” said Brian Warren, SVP of Engineering and Product at CoreSite. “At CoreSite, our goal is to provide our customers with easy and flexible solutions to integrate their existing architecture with public and private cloud services.”

With more than 280,000 square feet of space for scalable colocation deployments, CoreSite's network-dense, cloud-enabled New York data center campus, consists of its Manhattan (NY1) and Secaucus, New Jersey (NY2) data centers.
