Data center and interconnection solutions provider CoreSite has announced the availability of ‘Hosted Connections’ with 1, 2, 5, or 10 Gbps of capacity for Amazon Web Services (AWS) Direct Connect. These capacities are available through CoreSite’s Open Cloud Exchange, enabling direct, private, virtual connectivity into AWS Cloud.
The availability of higher bandwidth connections would help optimize hybrid IT deployments. It offers customers the flexibility to select a connectivity option that meets their needs with the ability to scale bandwidth as needed.
“We’re excited to expand our offering of Hosted Connections through AWS Direct Connect with bandwidth capabilities now up to 10 Gbps,” said Gerry Fassig, Vice President of Sales, CoreSite. “With AWS Direct Connect services and CoreSite’s Open Cloud Exchange, we can provide access to the cloud and multiple regions from any CoreSite location. As our customers grow their digital strategies we can serve their needs through flexible, powerful hosted or direct connect capabilities.”
CoreSite is an Advanced Technology Partner in the AWS Partner Network (APN) and has been providing CoreSite customers with AWS Direct Connect services since 2011. AWS Direct Connect is a cloud service solution that would make it easy to establish a dedicated network connection from on-premises to AWS Cloud. CoreSite customers can privately access AWS Direct Connect through a cross-connection or through high-performance virtual connections via the CoreSite Open Cloud Exchange.
CoreSite Open Cloud Exchange
Established in 2013, the CoreSite Open Cloud Exchange has been built to virtually unite enterprises, networks and cloud providers, including major public clouds such as AWS, Microsoft Azure and Oracle Cloud. Unlike using the public Internet, the CoreSite Open Cloud Exchange establishes direct, secured, virtual connections – enabling “more control, reliability, and security” for your data.
Additionally, CoreSite’s online portal would allow on-demand access for CoreSite customers to interface directly to virtual cloud environments. Through individualized portals, customers maintain control of data in real-time, providing the scalability and elasticity required for cloud application and one-to-many architecture deployments.
