DENVER--(BUSINESS WIRE)--May 15, 2017-- 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 Microsoft Azure ExpressRoute from CoreSite’s Denver data center campus. Dedicated, private connectivity to Azure, Microsoft Office 365 and Dynamics 365 via ExpressRoute is also available at CoreSite’s Los Angeles and New York data center campuses as well as across all CoreSite markets via our carrier and exchange partner ecosystem.

CoreSite customers in Denver can connect directly to Azure, Office 365 and Dynamics 365 via the CoreSite Open Cloud Exchange, which provides private, SLA-backed virtual connections and on-demand provisioning. The integration of Azure ExpressRoute and the CoreSite Open Cloud Exchange provides CoreSite customers with the opportunity to establish a fast and reliable private connection into Azure, Office 365 and Dynamics 365. With a dedicated Azure ExpressRoute connection, customers have a natural extension of their data centers and can build hybrid applications that span on-premises infrastructure and Azure without compromising privacy or performance.

CoreSite customers in Denver, Los Angeles and New York can efficiently transfer large data sets for high-performance computing, migrate virtual machines between dev-test environments in Azure to production environments housed in a CoreSite data center and optimize replication for business continuity, disaster recovery, and other high-availability strategies. Microsoft Azure ExpressRoute also enables Office 365 and Dynamics 365 customers to streamline network connectivity for Exchange, Skype for Business and SharePoint services.

“With this most recent expansion of direct connectivity to Azure ExpressRoute in our Denver market, we continue to provide our customers with reliable, secure and low-latency connectivity options to leading cloud providers via direct connections, which deliver enhanced performance compared to connections over the public Internet,” said Brian Warren, Senior Vice President of Engineering & Product at CoreSite. “At CoreSite, we strive to provide predictable, reliable and high-throughput connections, allowing our customers to build hybrid cloud applications without compromising security or performance.”

CoreSite’s Denver campus (DE1 and DE2) is strategically located in downtown Denver and geographically close to Microsoft’s new West Central US region providing low-latency connectivity and optimized hybrid capabilities to businesses in Colorado and surrounding states. The presence of over 75 network, cloud and IT service providers within these two data centers makes CoreSite’s colocation facilities the most integral points of interconnection in the Rocky Mountain region. These strategically centralized data centers are tethered to regional communication hubs offering customers secure, reliable, high-performance solutions for their mission-critical business applications as well as a secondary location to West or East coast deployment.
