SAN DIEGO, Jan. 9, 2013 /PRNewswire/ — Nirvanix, the leader in enterprise-class cloud storage services, today announced a collaborative effort with CoreSite Realty Corporation (NYSE: COR), a national provider of powerful, network-rich data centers, to provide direct connections to Nirvanix cloud storage at CoreSite’s One Wilshire data center campus in Los Angeles. By offering direct connections to Nirvanix cloud storage services, new and existing CoreSite customers can establish a private network connection between their owned or managed IT infrastructure and the Nirvanix Cloud Storage Network(TM)–providing immediate access to the Nirvanix Cloud File System(TM) designed to support millions of users, billions of objects and exabytes of data.

This provides them with anytime, anywhere data access through live replicas spread across a global grid, enabling workflow and content collaboration across multiple diverse locations while maintaining data consistency.”
Nirvanix is the only cloud storage services provider to offer private, hybrid, and public deployment options. CoreSite customers who choose Nirvanix Hybrid Cloud Storage have an optimal solution, including a fast direct connection to a Nirvanix node deployed at the secure CoreSite data center, enabling them to maintain cloud storage capacity on premises for frequently accessed or confidential data plus access to the Nirvanix public cloud for on-demand capacity and bandwidth, supporting cloudbursting during peak business hours.
