DENVER, Colo., June 11 -- CoreSite Realty Corporation, a premier provider of network-dense, cloud-enabled data center solutions and the CoreSite Mesh, today announced that XO Communications is launching its new XO Compute cloud service from CoreSite's facilities in Northern Virginiaand Los Angeles. XO Communications, one of the largest telecommunications companies in the U.S., will offer customers across North America a new cloud service that includes storage, backup and infrastructure as a service (IaaS).
XO Communication's East and West Coast cloud deployments will leverage CoreSite's data center scalability and customer accessibility to expand and enhance its well-established best-of-breed network and service offerings, already present in both CoreSite facilities. The deployments will enable XO Communications to provide its XO Compute product portfolio to customers easily, securely and with minimal latency. CoreSite customers will also gain access to other new offerings as well, including the XO Cloud Vault , XO Cloud Drive, and XO Enterprise Cloud services to address storage, backup, and IaaS needs, all of which were announced this week.
XO is deploying at CoreSite's One Wilshire campus in Los Angeles which provides proximity to over 180 networks and access to a large ecosystem of digital content providers and enterprises. XO Communications will also grow its presence at CoreSite's Reston data center campus, which is strategically located along rich fiber routes and connectivity across Northern Virginia and Washington, DC, providing immediate access to communities of financial service providers, government-related agencies and other enterprises.
"Expanding with CoreSite for our new XO Compute portfolio made perfect sense," said Don MacNeil, CMO, XO Communications. "Not only do its facilities meet our growing requirements and support the needs of our customers, but its East and West Coast data centers will enable us to seamlessly integrate our new cloud offerings with our existing network presence. The expansion gives mid-size and enterprise customers nationwide, especially in financial services, healthcare and business services, easy access to our cloud services with minimal latency and maximum performance."
"We're delighted to support XO Communications' new Compute cloud services portfolio as XO Communications grows its business with us," said Jarrett Appleby, COO, CoreSite.
