Astound is deploying its network into CoreSite’s hybrid IT infrastructure in multiple, purpose-built data centre campuses in strategic markets including Boston, Chicago, Washington D.C., Los Angeles and Silicon Valley.
This integration with CoreSite enables Astound’s new and existing business customers to have direct access to native cloud onramps to the leading public cloud providers, and high-performance, dedicated connectivity to networks and partners within CoreSite’s data centres. In turn, CoreSite customers will have access to more than 40,000 fibre route miles on Astound’s nationwide fibre network.
Astound selected CoreSite based on CoreSite’s more than 20-year track record of providing highly redundant, secure colocation solutions and its robust ecosystem of enterprise customers and digital platforms. In addition, CoreSite’s high-performance, diverse connectivity translates into a competitive edge and growth opportunities for Astound’s business customers through operational continuity, reduced costs, lower latency and scalability.
“Astound and CoreSite are highly complementary, both geographically and operationally, and we share a commitment to maintaining a localised, customer-centric business approach,” said Patrick Knorr, Chief Commercial Officer for Astound Business Solutions. “Working with CoreSite strengthens our offerings for our 75,000 business customers in key markets across the U.S. and we look forward to the prospect of expanding the relationship as our business continues to grow.”
“Adding Astound to key CoreSite data centre campuses across the U.S. benefits Astound’s customers through enhanced connectivity and cloud access, while our customers benefit from having Astound’s strong nationwide fibre network available to them,” said Juan Font, President and CEO of CoreSite, SVP of U.S. Tower. “This collaboration makes sense on many levels, and we look forward to working with Astound to develop it further.”
