23 October 2012 |


DE-CIX has entered a partnership with the US data centre and co-location provider CoreSite Realty that will enable access to the DE-CIX peering exchange from multiple CoreSite locations across the US.

The move is said to help accelerate the growth of CoreSite’s internet exchange hub, which is aiming to combine the interconnection capabilities of the world’s leading internet exchanges.

Through the partnership, DE-CIX will provide CoreSite customers with peering to more than 480 ISPs from over 52 countries, including central and eastern European countries, Russia and the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS).

“The opportunity to connect to DE-CIX directly at CoreSite facilities will boost the interconnectivity options for companies throughout the US,” said Andreas Sturm, head of business development at DE-CIX. “The relationship with CoreSite helps us to expand the connectivity options of our customers even further. The connection between DE-CIX and CoreSite will stimulate data traffic worldwide.”

CoreSite has multiple facilities throughout the US, including in Los Angeles, Chicago, New York, Denver, Washington DC, Northern Virginia and the San Francisco Bay Area.

“We are focussed on bringing expanded solutions to our customers that increase interconnection options through an open-exchange platform,” said Brian Warren, VP of product management at CoreSite.
