DENVER, Jan 23, 2014 – CoreSite Realty Corporation, a provider of network-dense, cloud-enabled enterprise-class data center products and services, today announced that customers at CoreSite’s recently opened “NY2” data center in Secaucus, N.J., can directly order connections to the native AWS Direct Connect deployment at CoreSite’s existing NY1 data center in Manhattan.
By bypassing the public internet, AWS Direct Connect gives CoreSite customers access to all of AWS’s cloud services through a private, enterprise-grade network connection. AWS Direct Connect helps customers reduce bandwidth costs, improve network security and achieve more consistent network performance. Additionally, the service can be scaled efficiently to meet future connection needs.
“CoreSite is proud to expand the availability of AWS Direct Connect into New Jersey as it aligns with our commitment to delivering network-dense, cloud-enabled data center solutions to customers across the country,” said Jarrett Appleby, chief operating officer at CoreSite. “Enterprises in Manhattan and throughout the tri-state metro area can connect directly to AWS in New Jersey, obtaining enhanced security, reliability and scalability at a much lower cost to operate while maintaining optimal performance.”
Available as either a 1 Gbps or 10 Gbps connection, AWS Direct Connect is compatible with all AWS services, including Amazon Simple Storage Service (S3), Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2), Amazon Virtual Private Cloud (Amazon VPC) and Amazon Relational Database (RDS). Because the service is scalable, CoreSite customers can easily provision multiple AWS direct connections as their capacity needs change.
Opened in December, CoreSite’s NY2 facility was built to create a scalable option for enterprises looking to expand and reduce cost in the New York metro area while optimizing performance with direct, low-latency access to the digital center of Manhattan. CoreSite designed NY2 to address the performance-sensitive and security requirements of enterprises, with an abundant number of high-speed network deployments that complement the existing network, cloud and enterprise density at CoreSite’s NY1 facility.
In addition to New Jersey, CoreSite offers AWS Direct Connect service in Los Angeles, Silicon Valley, Northern Virginia/DC and Boston. For more information regarding AWS Direct Connect and/or CoreSite’s new NY2 campus, visit http://www.coresite.com/secaucus-data-center.php.
