CoreSite Expands in Miami, Completes Acquisition of State-of-the-Art Data Center
CoreSite, a leading hybrid IT solutions provider and subsidiary of American Tower Corporation (NYSE: AMT) (“American Tower”), today announced its expansion in the Miami market with the acquisition of a modern, purpose-built 103,000-square-foot data center (MI2) located at 2100 NW 84th Avenue in Doral, Florida. CoreSite also owns and operates a 43,000-square-foot data center (MI1) in downtown Miami located at 2115 NW 22nd Street.
The MI2 Miami data center is a freestanding facility in America’s Gateway Park built to withstand a Category 5 hurricane with a 185-mph-gust-rated roof. As part of the integration process, CoreSite will be connecting MI2 to the company’s MI1 data center, which will offer customers enhanced access to a more robust ecosystem in addition to the fiber providers currently available in the facility. With the augmentation of MI2 to CoreSite’s Miami data center campus, businesses will have more IT infrastructure options and immediate capacity to enter into, or expand their footprint, in the growing Miami market.
“Miami serves as a key conduit for businesses to manage and grow operations in both North and South America. This expansion in the CoreSite Miami data center campus will provide the hybrid IT solution enterprises turn to for secure and scalable connectivity to South America from the U.S,” said Juan Font, President and CEO of CoreSite and SVP of U.S. Tower. “We are excited to build on our proven record of operational excellence in the greater Miami area where we have been operating since 2006, offering optimal customer experience, critical security and business continuity support and access to cloud and network providers.”
The MI2 data center features critical building infrastructure with all major systems designed to be concurrently maintainable, while CoreSite’s MI1 is strategically located downtown and provides ultra-low latency to greater Miami and South American network points of presences (POPs) — creating an ideal interconnection site for content caching.
CoreSite’s expanded Miami data center campus will have a combined square footage of nearly 150,000 to help propel global digital transformation for businesses across all industries. In addition, customers will be able to leverage the Open Cloud Exchange , CoreSite’s leading interconnection platform that provides superior connectivity and a robust and interconnected partner ecosystem needed to reach new markets, rapidly scale on-demand, reduce total cost of operation and accelerate IT modernization.
