Faction Partners With CoreSite
The partnership is designed to launch multi-cloud storage and network solutions and to expand its VMware private-cloud services.
CoreSite Realty Corporation has announced that Faction has partnered with CoreSite in both the Northern Virginia and Silicon Valley markets to deliver expanded multi-cloud service offerings to its customers.
Faction chose to partner with CoreSite based on its scalable data center platform, strategic locations and high-performance interconnection solutions that allow Faction to optimize the delivery of its multi-cloud service offering by providing low-latency connectivity to leading cloud and network service providers. Faction will leverage connectivity to the CoreSite Open Cloud Exchange to deliver high-performance and cost-effective VMware based clouds with Administrator-level access to VMware vCenter that offers unprecedented control, flexibility, and integration capabilities for hybrid & multi-cloud deployments.
Along with Faction’s leading enterprise-class private cloud and Veeam backup solutions, Faction is launching a multi-cloud NetApp storage solution and Managed VMware on AWS offering that is enabled by leveraging the low-latency cloud on-ramps within the CoreSite portfolio.
“CoreSite provides the facilities, high-performance interconnection solutions and close proximity to the major public cloud providers, which are key to enabling our multi-cloud solutions and go-to-market strategy,” said Luke Norris, Chief Executive Officer at Faction. “We are committed to providing our customers with maximum control in an unmatched multi-cloud environment, and CoreSite enables us to deliver a differentiated customer experience.”
The CoreSite Silicon Valley market is comprised of seven operational data centers, providing colocation solutions to one of the largest concentrations of Internet and technology companies in the world. More than 185 international and national carriers, social media companies, cloud computing providers, media and entertainment firms, and enterprise customers connect to do business in CoreSite’s Silicon Valley data center market.
The CoreSite Northern Virginia data center market currently includes three highly scalable facilities — one in Washington, D.C. and two on its Reston, VA campus (VA1 and VA2). CoreSite recently announced the expansion of both its Reston and Washington, D.C. campuses, all of which will now total over 1,097,000 sq ft of colocation data center space upon full build out. CoreSite’s customer community includes a diverse mix of government, financial services and cloud service providers, as well as domestic and international networks providing a direct connection to U.S. and European markets. With the growing importance of Northern Virginia as a communications and enterprise hub, CoreSite’s Reston campus provides flexible colocation and hybrid-cloud deployment solutions for customers located in Washington, D.C. and the greater Northern Virginia area.
“We are pleased that Faction has partnered with CoreSite to expand the reach of their VMware-based private cloud and Veeam backup solutions. Additionally, their multi-cloud service offering is a valuable addition to the ecosystem, and through the CoreSite Open Cloud Exchange, Faction is able to deliver a true hybrid-cloud experience without compromising security or performance,” said Steve Smith, senior vice president, sales and marketing at CoreSite. “Faction provides enterprises with unique and customized cloud solutions built on a powerful and well-adopted VMware environment, and we look forward to supporting their future growth.”
