Coresite: Providing Support for Critical IT Infrastructure in a Secure, Reliable Environment

CIO VendorTom Ray, President & CEO
The current compute model has opened up numerous new possibilities into data delivery, content management, and overall improvements in user experience. The reality is simple: If you are carrying a smart device, you must be connected into a data center somewhere. Users are demanding a continuous flow of information to any device, anytime and anywhere. In order to handle the growing traffic deluge, data centers need secure, reliable, high-performance data center products and services.

Coming to the aid of such companies is CoreSite, which is obsessive about delivering secure, reliable, high-quality data center products and services across North America. The data center provider connects, protects and ensures the optimal performance and continued operation of mission-critical data and IT infrastructure for enterprises and Internet, private networking, mobility, and cloud service providers. The company's scalable platform of over 2.5 million square feet of efficient, network-dense, cloud-enabled data center capacity empowers customers to accelerate business performance, reduce operating costs and increase flexibility across their IT and communications systems.

The Artillery

Leading global enterprises covering nearly every industry, networks/carriers, content delivery, and cloud providers rely on CoreSite’s industry solutions, collocation products and interconnection services in order to connect and do business. “We understand that each one of our customers has different, unique needs—and we are committed to providing tailored, flexible solutions that meet those needs, even as markets and customer demands evolve, “says CEO and President, Tom Ray.
CoreSite's team of more than 350 professionals are always present to deliver best-in-class service by placing customer needs first in supporting the planning, implementation and operating requirements necessary to ensure reliable, secure and efficient IT environments.

All the Right Reasons

More than 800 of the world’s leading enterprises, carriers and mobile operators, content and cloud providers and media and entertainment companies have chosen CoreSite to connect, protect and optimize their performance-sensitive data, applications and computing workloads. The company provides direct access to more than 275 carriers and ISPs, inter-site connectivity and CoreSite's Open Cloud Exchange, which supports rapid, efficient and scalable Ethernet access to multiple key public clouds, enabling simple, flexible, multi-cloud capabilities.

Then and Now

Incepted in 2001 as CRG West, a portfolio company of The Carlyle Group was created to meet the needs of interconnection and data center customers.

In 2009, CRG West rebranded as CoreSite—a name more indicative of the company’s national capabilities, international reach and mission-critical reliability. In 2010, CoreSite became publicly traded on the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE: COR).

Today, CoreSite operates 16 data centers in eight major communications markets across the United States, serves more than 800 customers and has a portfolio that totals more than 2.5 million square feet.
