DENVER – CoreSite Realty Corporation (NYSE:COR), a premier provider of secure, reliable, high-performance data center and interconnection solutions across the U.S., today announced the availability of dedicated, private connectivity into VMware Cloud™ on AWS. VMware Cloud on AWS brings together VMware’s enterprise-class Software-Defined Data Center (SDDC) software and elastic, bare-metal infrastructure from Amazon Web Services (AWS) to give organizations a consistent operating model and application mobility across private and public cloud resources. Direct connectivity to VMware Cloud on AWS is now available through fiber interconnections or through the CoreSite Open Cloud Exchange in four CoreSite markets, including Boston, Denver, New York and Northern Virginia.

CoreSite is an AWS Advanced Technology Partner and is one of the first data center providers to offer dedicated, private connectivity to VMware Cloud on AWS, providing a high-performance hybrid infrastructure that enables customers to seamlessly integrate their on-premises VMware infrastructure with VMware Cloud on AWS resources. CoreSite customers that leverage direct connectivity to VMware Cloud on AWS will benefit from the scale, flexibility, performance and security of the AWS Cloud, while reducing network latency by more than 40% and reducing data transfer costs by as much as 70%.
