Avnet Adds Data Center Services from CoreSite to Portfolio

Avnet has expanded its portfolio to include colocation solutions from CoreSite, a provider of data center and interconnection services with direct access to leading cloud providers such as AWS, Google and Microsoft.

With CoreSite’s 17 data centers across eight major metropolitan areas in the U.S., this expansion will bolster Avnet’s already strong portfolio of trusted colocation providers that enable hybrid cloud environments. CoreSite’s services will be available in the Avnet catalog as a standard available offering as well as through the Avnet Cloud Marketplace, empowering Avnet partners to help their customers move into off-premise, multi-tenant data center models.

“Avnet’s new relationship with CoreSite makes it simpler than ever for partners to capitalize on the growing demand among customers for hybrid cloud environments,” said Tim FitzGerald, vice president of Avnet’s digital transformation business in the Americas. “CoreSite’s co-location solutions combined with the strength of Avnet’s cloud and hybrid data center services will help partners quickly solve for common customer challenges in the cloud, including cost, performance and security. This is another great example of how Avnet continues to innovate its cloud solutions that span all solutions aspects, including design, integration, delivery, implementation, migration and disposal.”
