Verizon Delivers Secure Cloud Interconnect to CoreSite

CoreSite has joined Verizon Enterprise Solutions’ Secure Cloud Interconnect (SCI) service ecosystem.  Enterprises using cloud, hybrid cloud and colocations solutions from CoreSite will be able to tap into Verizon’s networking solution, which features dynamic bandwidth allocation, strong security (encryption), application performance throughput and quality of service options.

Service is available initially at four CoreSite data centers  in Los Angeles, New York/New Jersey, Chicago, and Silicon Valley with a fifth site in Northern Virginia expected to come online next month.

Verizon's SCI now provides connections to six cloud providers (Amazon, Google, HP, Microsoft, Salesforce and Verizon) and now three data center providers (Equinix, Verizon and CoreSite). SCI is built on Verizon’s Private IP network that offers any-to-any connectivity of IP via MPLS, while providing the security and reliability associated with private wide-area networking solutions. Using Verizon’s Mobile Private Networking service, SCI is further extended to users of its 4G LTE service.

“With Verizon’s SCI solution, our customers can tap directly into the leading enterprise-class cloud networking service to meet their performance and reliability objectives,” said Ben Green, VP of Network and Mobility for CoreSite. “The cloud offers a huge opportunity for organizations on so many levels especially with the ease of control offered by Verizon’s solution.”

“Verizon SCI now connects to CoreSite which gives our customers more choices when architecting their cloud and colocation solutions,” said Shawn Hakl, vice president of enterprise networking and innovation for Verizon. “CoreSite is a good fit for Verizon as they offer the security, expertise and right mix of customer locations that will enhance our customers’ experience.”
