CoreSite improves AWS bandwidth offering


CoreSite Realty Corporation has announced the availability of hosted connections with one, two, five, or 10Gbps of capacity for Amazon Web Services (AWS) Direct Connect.

The data centre and interconnection firm made the capacities available through the CoreSite Open Cloud Exchange, which it launched almost a year ago, to enable direct, private, virtual connectivity into AWS.

CoreSite can offer higher bandwidth connections, which optimises hybrid IT with the flexibility to select a connectivity option and the ability to scale bandwidth.

“We’re excited to expand our offering of Hosted Connections through AWS Direct Connect with bandwidth capabilities now up to 10Gbps,” said Gerry Fassig, CoreSite's VP of sales.

“With AWS Direct Connect services and CoreSite’s Open Cloud Exchange, we can provide access to the cloud and multiple regions from any CoreSite location.

“As our customers grow their digital strategies we can serve their needs through flexible, powerful hosted or direct connect capabilities.”

CoreSite is an Advanced Technology Partner in the AWS Partner Network (APN) and has been providing CoreSite customers with AWS Direct Connect services since 2011.

AWS Direct Connect is a cloud service solution that makes it easy to establish a dedicated network connection from on-premises to AWS.

CoreSite customers can privately access AWS Direct Connect through a cross connection or through virtual connections via the CoreSite Open Cloud Exchange, which virtually connects enterprises, networks and cloud providers, including major public clouds such as AWS, Microsoft Azure and Oracle Cloud.

Earlier this year, CoreSite launched the CoreSite Interconnect Gateway solution, which simplifies enterprises’ digital strategies.
