CoreSite Realty Corporation has announced that Sesame Workshop, the nonprofit educational organization behind Sesame Street, chose CoreSite’s New York campus to establish a hybrid-cloud deployment that allows it to meet its technology requirements in a cost-effective manner.

CoreSite’s New York campus was selected based on the vast availability of technologies with which to integrate, including Microsoft Azure ExpressRoute, AWS Direct Connect and high-performance dark fiber connectivity. CoreSite’s enterprise-class NY2 data center provides its customers with the ability to scale and resiliency in the infrastructure and the service offering.

“Sesame Workshop needed a data center provider that offered innovative solutions as we worked to overcome the challenges of deploying a hybrid infrastructure with the ability to integrate natively with leading cloud-service providers and an abundance of connectivity options,” said Shadrach Kisten, senior vice president and chief technology officer at Sesame Workshop. “Working with CoreSite will allow us to build out efficiently-scalable infrastructure to host our resources and intellectual properties.”

CoreSite's network-dense, cloud-enabled New York data center campus is one of the best-connected and most scalable offerings on the Eastern Seaboard, supporting the operations of mission-critical data and IT infrastructure. The campus includes two data center facilities — NY1, comprised of over 48,000 sq ft of data center space in the heart of Manhattan, and NY2, with over 236,000 sq ft of data center space situated above the 500-year floodplain in Secaucus, NJ. CoreSite's New York campus hosts over 40 network service providers and provides direct access to some of the world's leading cloud service providers, all with robust, low-latency network access to Manhattan, supporting acceleration of customers' IT performance while reducing customer costs.

“We are pleased to welcome Sesame Workshop to the growing and robust ecosystem of local enterprises that are leveraging the data center solutions and interconnection services that we provide to enable businesses to embrace digital transformation,” said Matt Gleason, general manager, New York at CoreSite. “Our network-dense and cloud-enabled data centers offer our customers secure and reliable data center capacity, and we look forward to supporting Sesame Workshops’ technological evolution while providing a best-in-class customer experience.”
