Cortx Service Orchestrator reduces interconnection time from weeks to seconds

May 5, 2015 – OTTAWA, Canada. CENX, a global leader of Service Orchestration solutions for software-defined networks, today announced that CoreSite Realty Corporation (NYSE: COR) has signed an extension of its multi-year agreement with CENX for Cortx Service Orchestrator, to deliver on-demand, high-performance, interconnection services. Leveraging Cortx, CoreSite’s Open Cloud Exchange customers are able to access a self-serve online portal to provision reliable, secure Ethernet connectivity within seconds.

Cortx Service Orchestrator simplifies end-to-end management of advanced data services through automation of fulfillment and assurance tasks, and turns network big data into actionable intelligence for capacity and SLA management. These automation capabilities serve the high-growth cloud data center market, where enterprise demand for connectivity services is on the rise to bridge private and public clouds.

CoreSite, one of the first data center providers to offer dynamic Ethernet interconnection services to the Cloud, launched the CoreSite Open Cloud Exchange supported by CENX’s Service Orchestration in early 2013. CoreSite’s exchange is integrated with top Cloud and network providers enabling enterprise customers’ on-demand, private, virtual connectivity for their applications. Through CoreSite’s portal, customers control their data in real time, providing the scalability and elasticity essential for Cloud applications.

“CENX’s industry-leading capabilities in Service Orchestration accelerated the development of the CoreSite Open Cloud Exchange,” said Brian Warren, Senior VP, Product and Marketing, CoreSite. “CENX continues to work with us to support the CoreSite Open Cloud Exchange, a solution that accelerates the business performance of our customers through low-latency access to multiple cloud and hybrid cloud providers.”

“We are proud of our long-standing collaboration with CoreSite, a leading data center provider in the U.S., in helping them expand their Cloud connectivity offering,” said Jay McMullan, Senior Vice President of Worldwide Sales, CENX. “This deployment is an example of the value that Cortx Service Orchestrator brings by capitalizing on big data analytics for agile software-defined data center operations, enabling customers to dynamically order and monitor their data exchange services.”
