Denver, CO – June 10, 2013 – CoreSite Realty Corporation (NYSE:COR, news, filings), a premier provider of network-dense, cloud-enabled data center solutions and the CoreSite Mesh, today announced a new, industry leading solutions launch with tw telecom (NASDAQ:TWTC, news, filings) that will help enable customers to connect to cloud services with greater speed, security and flexibility.
A leading national provider of network and managed services, tw telecom will link its industry leading Business Ethernet services platform to CoreSite’s Open Cloud Exchange, providing enterprises with dynamic private Ethernet connectivity into CoreSite’s data centers and the CoreSite Mesh.

CoreSite and tw telecom are committed to evolving this capability further to provide a high degree of automation that will enable both data center customers and their applications through a combination of network, APIs, and cloud exchange, delivered as one complete solution.
