CoreSite Realty Corporation (COR), a premier provider of secure, reliable, high-performance data center and interconnection solutions across the U.S., today announced that Pilot, a leading provider of business connectivity solutions, has deployed four new network Points of Presence (PoPs) at CoreSite's New York, Boston, Los Angeles, and Denver data center campuses.
Pilot selected CoreSite for its track record of operational excellence across its portfolio, as well as its well-established presence within the regions. CoreSite’s robust customer ecosystem of interconnected businesses creates new revenue and service performance opportunities for Pilot. The new PoPs will expand the reach of Pilot’s network and provide CoreSite customers with access to Pilot’s broad portfolio of products, including Ethernet transport and IP transit offerings.
"We require a data center provider that can connect Pilot with existing and new customers and partners, and also provide the flexibility to meet our unique requirements,” said Christian Koch, Director of Network Strategy at Pilot. “Partnering with CoreSite is a natural evolution for growing Pilot’s network presence as both companies are dedicated to operational excellence and providing an outstanding customer experience.”
CoreSite’s Los Angeles, Denver, Boston and New York communities, combined, feature more than 1,200 customers, including domestic and international carriers, enterprises, cloud computing providers such as AWS, Microsoft, and Google, system integrators, media and entertainment firms, social networking sites, and gaming companies. Additionally, the CoreSite Los Angeles data center campus is the site of the largest peering exchange on the West Coast – the CoreSite Any2Exchange® for Internet peering, with direct access to Any2 switches from all of CoreSite’s data centers.
“We are pleased that Pilot has chosen to expand with us in Los Angeles, Denver, Boston and New York, four interconnection-dense, edge markets,” said Ben Green, Vice President of Sales, Network & Mobility at CoreSite. “Pilot’s robust business connectivity services will benefit our ever-growing customer communities that have a high demand for network and cloud connectivity solutions.”
