The facility located in Reston, Virginia, provides the CoreSite customer community with the immediate benefits of a vibrant ecosystem of natively deployed networks, cloud on-ramps, and solution partners.

“The CoreSite Reston campus provides customers cloud connectivity and delivers the highest security and performance, low latency, with the lowest cost of cloud service utilization," said Juan Font, CoreSite’s Senior Vice President, General Management, in a statement.

"With over 100MW of expected capacity for the Reston Campus Expansion, and the multi-cloud capabilities of the CoreSite platform, we are in a position to deliver the maximum degree of scale, operational flexibility and performance throughout the entire lifecycle of customers’ digital transformation journey,” Juan Font added.
