Sidera Networks is providing connectivity between CoreSite's data centres in key US markets.

The fibre provider has connected CoreSite facilities to its network in cities including Chicago, Boston, New York, Washington, DC, and Reston, VA.

The deployment will support the requirements of CoreSite's financial services, content delivery, web services, media and entertainment and other high bandwidth customers with performance sensitive applications.

"CoreSite has developed a successful model of attracting the largest content players, service providers, and end customers and connecting them together at key exchange points around the country," said Jarrett Appleby, COO at CoreSite. "This strategy relies on our selection of key fibre providers like Sidera to deliver high-performance networks for our customers' applications."

Connecting to Sidera's network will grant CoreSite customers access to over 40 financial exchanges and low latency services.

Sidera will also extend peering on CoreSite's Any 2 peering exchange and be able to provide access to the company's Open Internet Exchange aggregation hub for peering and interconnection opportunities.

"Sidera is proud to be a part of CoreSite's ecosystems," said Clint Heiden, president of Sidera Networks. "Connecting multiple CoreSite facilities to our network ensures that our mutual customers will have diverse and scalable access to strategic data centre resources, from carrier interconnection to cloud services to space, power and storage."
