CoreSite Deploys Arrcus Solution to Build Out Open Cloud Exchange

Arrcus, a hyper-scale networking software company and a leader in core-to-edge infrastructure, announces today that CoreSite deployed its MCN solution to help enable CoreSite’s Open Cloud Exchange (OCX). Arrcus’ MCN was recognized in the 2022 Gartner Market Guide for Multi-cloud Networking Software.

The Open Cloud Exchange is an enterprise network services solution that enables customers to deploy high-performance hybrid architectures in a quick, secure and economical way. CoreSite leverages the ACE MCN solution to extend its software-defined networking platform through automating additional provisioning functionality within AWS and Microsoft Azure Cloud and direct cloud-to-cloud communication capabilities on CoreSite’s fully managed virtual routers.

Arrcus’ ACE MCN solution in CoreSite’s OCX went live last month in Boston, Chicago, Denver, Los Angeles, Miami, New York, San Francisco Bay and Virginia. Since then, CoreSite has expanded availability to its two new data center markets – Atlanta and Orlando – and are executing against a roadmap to add additional leading cloud service and SaaS providers to the OCX, in addition to AWS and Microsoft Azure Cloud.

CoreSite’s Open Cloud Exchange, supported by ACE MCN, enables enterprises to:

  • Scale and deploy applications across multiple U.S. markets rapidly using inter-market connectivity
  • Improve network performance and security with guaranteed private network isolation, throughput and lower latency compared to public internet connections
  • Increase speed to market and gain greater control and optionality
  • Recoup expensive cloud egress fees and redirect funds and internal resources to other business priorities

The Arrcus ACE MCN solution enables connectivity for workloads and data with hyper-scale performance and security across any cloud, any region, and any site.  The solution consists of ArcEdge  – secure data plane software that leverages virtual routing capabilities with ArcOS and ArcOrchestrator for cloud-native orchestration that automates and shortens multi-cloud networking setup time from days to hours.

The programmability and flexibility of the Arrcus solution enable CoreSite to provision virtual routing services for customers in a matter of minutes, increasing agility and efficiency. Rapid and secure cloud connectivity is critical for businesses to succeed in today’s digital economy. The Arrcus solution enables CoreSite to provide integrated security and orchestration to gain greater control and increased speed to market. This results in their customers’ ability to recoup expensive cloud egress fees and redirect funds and internal resources to other business priorities.

Arrcus ACE software is also available on the CoreSite Marketplace.
