CoreSite Realty is giving its enterprise customers another option to get access to Microsoft Azure ExpressRoute by offering the service in seven of its markets in the United States.
Specifically, customers will be able to access the Microsoft cloud service in Northern Virginia, Chicago, Silicon Valley, Denver, Los Angeles, New York, and Boston.
Customers can privately connect to Microsoft Azure, Office 365 and Dynamics 365 via the CoreSite Open Cloud Exchange, which provides SLA-backed virtual connections and on-demand provisioning.
As more customers migrate to the cloud, they will be able to use CoreSite to transfer large data sets for high-performance computing, migrate virtual machines between dev-test environments in Azure to production environments housed in a CoreSite data center and optimize replication for business continuity, disaster recovery and other high-availability strategies.
While CoreSite is hardly alone in offering this capability, the move will strengthen its growing bond with enterprise customers that are outsourcing their data center capabilities.
