Cloud Connected Data Centers
Cloud services are now ubiquitous in the IT industry. Most enterprises now use at least one cloud service provider, while more and more start-ups have cloud-only IT infrastructure. There is great reason for this – cloud platforms provide instant scalability and reduced upfront costs. However, many companies are finding that the cloud doesn’t make sense for all applications, and fees can be a headache to manage. A hybrid mix of dedicated infrastructure with integrated cloud connections works best and cost-effectively for most businesses.
CoreSite makes it easy to integrate your existing architecture with private and public cloud platforms. When you colocate within CoreSite’s secure data centers, you gain access to a marketplace of over 775 leading network, cloud, and IT service providers. This ecosystem provides enterprises the opportunity to replace costly network builds with private, direct connections to multiple providers simultaneously and on-demand while still having a secure, reliable and scalable environment to expand as requirements grow.
Whether you need to connect to a large public cloud like Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft Azure, Google Cloud Platform, Oracle Cloud and Alibaba Cloud, or require a specialty provider for private cloud, Software-as-a-Service, security, or other needs, CoreSite can connect you to the right solution.

What are Interconnection Services with Coresite?
Colocation and interconnection have been inseparable since the beginning of the industry. Colocation provides a central meeting place for networks, clouds and enterprises to house their physical infrastructure and efficiently exchange traffic with one another. Interconnection services are the physical connections between those companies that enable this exchange of data. This is best achieved in a vendor-neutral data center with a large ecosystem of vendors colocated together.
Colocation and Interconnection Working Together
When businesses create dedicated connections to one another within the same colocation data center - rather than connecting via a network outside of the data center - it reduces the distance that data has to travel, and ultimately, latency.
Interconnection has the ability to support one-to-many connectivity. Peering and cloud exchanges enable organizations to set up a more efficient network architecture and support multi-cloud connectivity through accessing multiple vendors through a single connection.
DIRECT CLOUD CONNECTIVITY
Direct cloud access services, such as AWS Direct Connect, Google Cloud, Microsoft Azure ExpressRoute and Oracle Cloud allow enterprises to bypass the public internet when connecting to major public cloud providers. This helps to reduce costs and increase performance.
What is Colocation?
A colocation data center is a physical facility that offers space with the proper power, cooling and security to host businesses’ computing hardware and servers. This capacity includes anything from cabinets to cages or private suites.
Often, colocation providers lease space to various tenants looking for colocation services – including network providers, cloud providers, and enterprises. These tenants can then interconnect to one another within the colocation data center and do business together. This allows businesses to centralize their IT operations and create an efficient architecture that can reduce costs.
Benefits of Data Center Colocation
Colocation provides a high-performance environment for your critical IT infrastructure. Customers can benefit from a 100% uptime SLA and focus on core business rather than managing a data center. Additionally, colocation provides dedicated, private connection options to hundreds of network, cloud and IT service providers to help streamline your architecture.
In the always-on world we inhabit, organizations often need to make sure their services are available 24/7 – guaranteed. With robust infrastructure and built-in redundancies across generators; CoreSite's tenured operation team ensures that your data is always up and running when you and your customers need it.
Security & compliance
Security and regulatory requirements are a major concern for most organizations. CoreSite data center colocation provides comprehensive measures to meet these requirements, such as 24x7x365 in-house security officers, perimeter fencing, mantrap entries, IP-DVR cameras, biometrics and keycard scanners.
Cost of ownership
Colocation provides several opportunities to reduce costs. Power and networking costs, dedicated operational and security staff, and cooling efforts all must be considered beyond the expense of basic equipment. Clear up internal resources by relying on CoreSite to maintain the data center space.
Colocation facilities should be able to support your future growth. Whether you start small and need to expand, move into a new market, have a build-to-suit requirement, or need to connect to the cloud, we work hard to find solutions to support nearly any need.
Carrier-neutral colocation facilities provide you with a marketplace of networks, clouds and IT service providers that compete for your business. Leverage direct connections and gain access to hundreds of businesses within our data centers.
