CoreSite Realty Corporation (NYSE: COR), a provider of “high-performance” data center solutions across the U.S., has joined forces with Verizon to deploy Verizon Secure Cloud Interconnect (SCI) services at five of CoreSite’s data centers, including locations in Los Angeles, New York/New Jersey, Chicago, Northern Virginia and Silicon Valley.
Verizon’s Secure Cloud Interconnect would allow enterprises to leverage its Private IP service and securely access major cloud hosting providers while achieving high levels of network security, reliability and performance.
Through Verizon SCI, CoreSite customers will gain seamless access to leading cloud hosting providers such as Amazon Web Services (AWS) Direct Connect, Verizon Cloud, Microsoft Azure and Google Cloud Platform. In addition, Verizon can connect CoreSite customers to their various business locations and workloads around the world.
Benefits of the new services in CoreSite’s data centers would include:
- Expansive scalability with direct connections to leading cloud providers and control of services through a single portal
- Reliable and scalable performance
- Security that meets high industry standards
- Unparalleled reach from diverse locations
- Flexible control of network management
- Usage-based billing; pay only for actual bandwidth consumed
“Our customers require – and CoreSite exceeds – stringent security and reliability standards for cloud, hybrid cloud and colocation solutions,” said Tom Ray, CEO of CoreSite. “Verizon has long been a leader in providing cutting-edge, globally-available solutions for enterprises. Our combined capabilities will enable customers to take advantage of additional cloud and network-dense options for their business needs.”
In addition to these five SCI Private IP deployments, Verizon also has 10 native network deployments in CoreSite data centers throughout the U.S., including Los Angeles, New York/New Jersey, Boston, Miami, Silicon Valley, Chicago and Northern Virginia.
