CoreSite Builds Direct Access to Germany's DE-CIX

CoreSite Realty, which operates major data centers in 7 of the largest markets in the U.S., announced plans to offer direct access to Germany's DE-CIX peering exchange from multiple CoreSite locations across the U.S. 

CoreSite said this new relationship with DE-CIX accelerates its mission to aggregate the interconnection capabilities of the world's leading internet exchanges. In particular, DE-CIX provides CoreSite customers with expanded peering opportunities through a simple connection to more than 480 ISPs from over 52 countries, including central and eastern European countries, Russia, and the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS).

"We are focused on bringing expanded solutions to our customers that increase interconnection options through an open-exchange platform," stated Brian Warren, Vice President of Product Management, at CoreSite. "By connecting to DE-CIX, we provide CoreSite customers simplified access to one of Europe's leading internet exchanges. It brings best-of-breed providers together to deliver dense interconnection ecosystems and diversity in the U.S. market."

  • CoreSite operates 12 data centers with over 2 million square feet of capacity in 7 major U.S. markets.

  • Last month, DE-CIX, the Internet exchange located in Frankfurt am Main (Germany), hit a new data throughput record last week  as Internet traffic across its switching fabric exceeded the 2 Tbps (terabits per second) mark for the first time.
  • DE-CIX currently servers over 480 Internet service providers from over 50 countries.  At DE-CIX, more than 12 petabytes of data are exchanged per day.
