Virginia Cloud Hosting

CoreSite's Northern Virginia data center offers close proximity to large telecommunications and Internet service providers as well as Washington Dulles International Airport.

This facility is tethered via dark fiber to our DC1 data center in Washington DC, providing even more connectivity with no loss of latency. Our diverse community of customers includes direct access to domestic and international carriers, CDNs, government agencies, enterprise companies, major universities and cloud computing and IT service providers.

VA1 features a variety of networks on-site, with direct-tethering connectivity to our DC1 facility where additional networks reside. The campus provides low-latency connectivity to other regional communication hubs in addition to our Open Cloud Exchange and the Any2Exchange® peering.

VA1 currently has more than 262,000 square feet of raised floor data center space; an expansion is planned in 2014 that will double the square footage of the current campus. This facility offers deployments from cabinets to dedicated private suites with high-density power configurations.
