CoreSite Realty Corporation (NYSE:COR), a provider of data center and interconnection solutions across the U.S., has announced the availability of Amazon Web Services (AWS) Direct Connect at its Santa Clara Campus in the Silicon Valley Market. Through AWS Direct Connect, CoreSite customers can directly access AWS cloud services over a private, enterprise-grade network connection.
CoreSite has been providing its customers with direct access to AWS Direct Connect service since 2011. With this expansion, AWS Direct Connect is now directly available in three CoreSite data center markets with deployments in Los Angeles, New York/New Jersey, and Silicon Valley. Additionally, access to AWS Direct Connect is available in five major markets through CoreSite’s Open Cloud Exchange. AWS Direct Connect is available across CoreSite’s entire data center portfolio through its carrier partners.
The benefits of this direct access would include reduced network costs, improved network security, and greater network performance.
“As enterprise customers look to adopt and deploy hybrid-cloud solutions, our goal is to provide simple and reliable connectivity options to enable them to maximize their IT investments and realize the benefits of the cloud,” said Brian Warren, Senior Vice President of product and engineering at CoreSite. “CoreSite is pleased to expand the availability of AWS Direct Connect into Silicon Valley as it aligns with our commitment to providing our customers with secure, high-performance data center and interconnection solutions to support their evolving needs.”
CoreSite customers can access AWS Direct Connect via a cross connection as well as elastic on-demand connectivity through the CoreSite Open Cloud Exchange. Direct access provides an alternative to using the Internet to access AWS cloud services by establishing “private, low latency network connections at reduced cost.”
