Updates to Introductory Section[edit]

CoreSite Realty Corporation is a national, carrier-neutral provider of data centers, colocation, peering, cloud services and interconnection. The company has 17 data centers—with 2 under construction—in the Boston, Chicago, Denver, Los Angeles, Miami, New York, Northern Virginia, San Francisco/San Jose, Santa Clara, and Washington DC areas. The company also operates the Any2Exchange, the second largest internet exchange in the US with 400+ members, and the largest exchange on the West Coast.[1][2][3]

CoreSite currently has more than 900 customers ranging from start-ups to Fortune 500 organizations. The company leases space to its customers in quantities ranging from one cabinet to an entire private data center. CoreSite has over 2.8 million square feet of data center space and founded the Open Cloud Exchange in 2013, an Ethernet platform that allows Enterprises to connect to multiple clouds simultaneously. The company also provides interconnection services to public cloud platforms, including AWS Direct Connect[4], Microsoft Azure ExpressRoute[5], and Google Cloud Platform[6].

The company was a wholly owned operating partner of The Carlyle Group, but is now publicly traded with little institutional interest[7]. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Sam.graim (talkcontribs) 15:59, 31 August 2016 (UTC)

New version / Merge[edit]

It has been suggested that the text from CoreSite needs to be merged into the Carlyle Grouparticle. The "consensus" of the the AfD for CoreSite was to merge that article into Carlyle Group because of Carlyle's controlling interest in the company. However, there was no consideration of the target article, only an easy resolution to the AfD. There is no appropriate spot in which to merge one relatively small portfolio company into the main body of the article about a firm that controls over 600 companies around the world. A brief mention might be worthwhile in the context of this article but this is not a merger and really not a fair outcome for those who thought that there would be a merge result.

Therefore, I have revised the text of the article materially and added references to establish notability. Given the level of change in the article, I believe if the proposing editor would like to revisit the AfD that a new discussion would be required. |► ϋrбanяeneωaℓTALK ◄| 13:52, 5 September 2009 (UTC)

The article's references don't seem to fit the article. I don't think anyone is going to dispute the size of clientele of Coresite since most of it's made public. There is alot of room for confusion when Coresite is said to be carrier neutral.Woods01 (talk) 09:50, 18 May 2011 (UTC)

PeeringDB No Longer Has List of IXPs[edit]

The following citation no longer works and I couldn't find anything to replace it at the new peeringdb site:
