Hurricane Electric and CoreSite Realty Corporation have announced that Hurricane Electric is extending its global IPv4 and IPv6 network to CoreSite data centers in New York, Chicago, and Reston, VA.    

CoreSite’s New York campus is comprised of two data center facilities, housed in Manhattan and Secaucus, NJ, providing cost-effective, scalable, network-dense connectivity to customers throughout the New York metro area.  Located adjacent to the Board of Trade, CoreSite’s Chicago data center provides extremely low-latency connectivity for financial and enterprise customers.  CoreSite’s Northern Virginia campus is strategically located between Ashburn and Washington, D.C., enabling customers’ connectivity in one of the nation’s key data center markets. These new Points-of-Presence (PoPs) add to Hurricane Electric’s existing PoPs with CoreSite, located in Denver, Los Angeles, and Silicon Valley.

The three new PoPs will offer CoreSite customers from the financial services, governmental, and enterprise sectors additional connectivity options at higher bandwidth speeds through 100GE (100 Gigabit Ethernet), 10GE (10 gigabit Ethernet), GigE (1 gigabit Ethernet) and 100BaseT network connections. Additionally, these customers now have the opportunity to exchange IP traffic, or “peer,” with Hurricane Electric’s rich global network through CoreSite’s Any2Exchange® for Internet peering.  With the launch of these new PoPs, businesses directly outside of these rapidly growing metro areas will also see improved service.

“We are pleased that Hurricane Electric has chosen to continue their growth with us and expand their availability to CoreSite data centers in New York, Chicago and Northern Virginia,” said Aron Smith, VP of Interconnection and Cloud for CoreSite.  “Hurricane Electric’s presence in these markets will further enhance our ability to offer CoreSite customers access to leading network providers.”

“Over the last few years, the data center markets of New York, Chicago and Northern Virginia have been growing at a rapid pace, so connecting to these three CoreSite locations is a perfect fit for Hurricane Electric and will enable us to meet the demand for high-speed Internet connectivity,” said Reid Fishler, Director of Carrier Services for Hurricane Electric. “These new locations will allow us to offer our services directly to CoreSite’s expanding customer base in these three markets.”
