Nirvanix Offers Cloud Storage Direct Connection at CoreSite Data Centers

Enterprises that are hosting equipment inside of CoreSite data centers will be able to connect directly to Nirvanix Cloud Storage services via a standard, single-mode fiber 1 Gbps or 10 Gbps Ethernet cross connection.  Access to the Nirvanix Cloud Storage services can also be established via an  Any2 internet exchange connection.  The service can be ordered via the MyCoreSite online customer portal.

Nirvanix said its Cloud File System is designed to support millions of users, billions of objects and exabytes of data. The private network connection enables customers to bypass Internet service providers to improve throughput, gain consistent network performance, enhance security, and reduce costs.

Nirvanix cloud storage is initially available at CoreSite's One Wilshire data center campus in Los Angeles.

"Nirvanix is the most logical progression from the enterprise data center to the enterprise cloud for applications such as backup, archive and large-scale content collaboration," said Dru Borden, CEO of Nirvanix. "As a result of this collaborative effort, CoreSite customers running a cloud computing environment or a SAN storage infrastructure can now establish an immediate and direct connection into our cloud storage services for on-demand storage capacity, availability and bandwidth. This provides them with anytime, anywhere data access through live replicas spread across a global grid, enabling workflow and content collaboration across multiple diverse locations while maintaining data consistency."

  • CoreSite operates 14 data center locations in nine major U.S. markets.
