CoreSite Adds New Amazon Web Services Direct Connect Endpoint That Supports Logical Redundancy in the Silicon Valley Market
CoreSite Realty Corporation (News - Alert) (NYSE:COR), a premier provider of secure,
reliable, high-performance data
center and interconnection
solutions across the U.S., today announced availability of a second
native point of connectivity to Amazon
Web Services (AWS) Direct Connect at CoreSite's Silicon Valley data
center campus. This deployment at the CoreSite SV2
data center in Milpitas, CA (News - Alert) supports the new logical redundancy
capability of AWS Direct Connect. Through AWS Direct Connect, CoreSite
customers can establish private, enterprise-grade connectivity to AWS
through a fiber interconnect or through the CoreSite Open Cloud Exchange.
With the addition of AWS logical redundancy capability, CoreSite
customers can improve resiliency by establishing two logical Border
Gateway (News - Alert) Protocol (BGP) peering sessions with two AWS devices over a
single physical AWS Direct Connect connection. With this functionality,
if one peering session goes down or if one of the AWS devices is out of
service for maintenance, customers will not lose connectivity to AWS.
Logical redundancy does not replace the need to have physical
resiliency, per the resiliency
recommendations in the AWS guidelines. Prior to this launch,
customers would need to have leveraged both CoreSite and another AWS
Partner Network (APN) provider to achieve location redundant physical
resiliency over AWS Direct Connect. Now, with two native endpoints in
Silicon Valley, CoreSite customers can achieve the same level of
resilient connectivity in two separate CoreSite data centers. CoreSite's
platform leveraging AWS Direct Connect is an ideal combination that
enables hybrid cloud architectures to improve network performance,
reduce operating costs and increase security.
"We are pleased to be one of two APN Partners in the United States to
offer our customers expanded availability and improved resiliency
options with AWS Direct Connect Logical Redundancy Support," said Gerry
Fassig, Vice President of Sales, Western Region & Strategic Cloud.
"Private connectivity solutions to strategic cloud providers like AWS
are essential as digital transformation fuels higher demand for
localized digital services at the edge."
