DENVER–(BUSINESS WIRE)–CoreSite Realty Corporation (NYSE:COR) (“CoreSite,” or the “Company”), a premier provider of secure, reliable, high-performance data center, cloud access and interconnection solutions across the U.S., today announced upgraded on-net availability of AWS Direct Connect supporting 100 Gbps Dedicated Connections in four key markets – Los Angeles, New York, Northern Virginia, and Santa Clara – making it easier for customers to integrate their digital strategies and deploy high-performance hybrid applications across multiple geographies on Amazon Web Services (AWS). CoreSite will provide high-speed fiber interconnects and proximity to key Amazon regions and availability zones, which will enhance edge-to-edge performance and reduce latency between colocation and cloud environments.
The private high-bandwidth connectivity between AWS and CoreSite’s data centers enables customers to lower operational overhead, while increasing capacity and performance delivered by 100 Gbps connections. This is particularly beneficial to applications that transfer large-scale datasets, such as for broadcast media distribution, autonomous vehicles, financial services trading and market information systems, and many other enterprises. The increasing enterprise need to provide a seamless customer experience, in a secure, reliable, and cost effective approach, makes these services especially valuable.
“CoreSite now has four of our key communication markets enabled with 100Gbps AWS Direct Connect service, which demonstrates our strength as a leading integration point for hybrid IT,” said Steve Smith, CoreSite’s Chief Revenue Officer. “We are excited to enable these capabilities to our customers and any enterprise looking to modernize their business-critical IT infrastructure. The fact that leading cloud providers like AWS Direct Connect choose to deploy their strategic edge services is another indication that customers can be confident of their strategic decision to choose CoreSite as their data center, interconnection and cloud integration provider.”
Among the data center providers that offer AWS Direct Connect capabilities to customers, CoreSite offers diverse points of integration across multiple geographies and AWS Regions providing greater flexibility and scalability, as well as a proven record of accomplishment supporting the use cases in these industries with large production workloads to manage. For example, CoreSite is currently the data center provider for the leading autonomous vehicle platforms in the nation and the country’s leading media and entertainments companies.
