CoreSite Realty Corporation has announced the expanded availability of Microsoft Azure ExpressRoute, which can now be privately accessed from seven of CoreSite’s markets across the country, including Northern Virginia, Chicago, Silicon Valley, Denver, Los Angeles, New York, and Boston.
CoreSite customers can privately connect to Microsoft Azure, Office 365 and Dynamics 365 via the CoreSite Open Cloud Exchange, which provides high-performance, SLA-backed virtual connections and on-demand provisioning. The integration of Azure ExpressRoute and the CoreSite Open Cloud Exchange provides CoreSite customers with the opportunity to establish a fast and reliable private connection into Microsoft Azure, Office 365 and Dynamics 365. With an Azure ExpressRoute connection, customers have a natural extension of their data centers and can build hybrid applications that span on-premises infrastructure and Microsoft Cloud services without compromising privacy or performance.
CoreSite customers can efficiently transfer large data sets for high-performance computing, migrate virtual machines between dev-test environments in Azure to production environments housed in a CoreSite data center and optimize replication for business continuity, disaster recovery, and other high-availability strategies.
“We are excited to announce the expanded availability of Microsoft Azure ExpressRoute connectivity to our customers across seven of our key markets,” said Brian Warren, senior vice president of engineering & products at CoreSite. “We are enabling our customers with the solutions necessary to bring together all of their applications, data, devices, and resources, both on-premise and in the cloud, with predictable, reliable, and secure high-throughput connections.”
