CoreSite Achieves “Six 9s” Availability for Fifth Consecutive Year

For the fifth consecutive year, CoreSite has achieved portfolio-wide uptime exceeding 99.9999 percent, or “six 9s”, across its platform of data center facilities.

Six 9s availability is equivalent to unscheduled downtime of less than 32 seconds per year against CoreSite’s 100 percent uptime service level agreement. By contrast, five 9s uptime correlates to downtime exceeding five minutes annually. When compared to five 9s, six 9s availability provides businesses with nearly 10 times the statistical reliability in the data center environment. Operating at such a high level of availability and reliability is paramount in today’s high-tech marketplace, underscoring the critical importance of enabling information and communications technology capabilities.

“We are once again pleased that our focus on operational excellence and the professionalism of our Field Operations organization has resulted in our achievement of six 9s uptime across our national platform of highly connected, cloud-enabled, enterprise-class data centers,” said Tom Ray, CEO at CoreSite. “We take pride in delivering high-performance data center and interconnection solutions, all supported by best-in-class customer service, to enable business performance.”
