Coresite Data Center Tour

On May 23, 2019, IEEE ComSocSCV and IEEE Power Electronics members were treated to a superb talk and tour of the Coresite Multi-Tenant Data Center (MTDC) in Santa Clara, CA.

CoreSite is a Multi-Tenant Data Center owner that competes with Equinix. CoreSite offers the following types of Network Access for their MTDC colocation customers:

•Direct Access to Tier-1 and Eyeball Networks
•Access to Broad Range of Network Services (Transit/Transport/Dark Fiber)
•Direct Access to Public Clouds (Amazon, Microsoft, Google, etc)
•Direct Access to Optical Ethernet Fabrics

CoreSite also provides POWER distribution and backup on power failures:
•Standby Generators
•Large Scale UPS
•Resilient Design
•Power Quality
•A/B Power Delivery
•99.999% Uptime

•24/7 OnSite Security Personnel
•Dual-Authentication Access
•IP DVR for All Facility Areas
•Perimeter Security
•Equipment Check-In/Out Process
•Access-Control Policies (Badge Deactivation, etc)


There are 28 network operators and cloud service providers that have brought fiber into the CoreSite Santa Clara MTDC campus. The purpose of that is to enable customers to share fiber network/cloud access at a much higher speed and lower cost than would otherwise be realized via premises-based network/cloud access.

While the names of the network and cloud service providers could not be disclosed, network providers included: Verizon, AT&T, Century Link, Zayo.  In addition, AWS Direct Connect, Microsoft Azure ExpressRoute, Alibaba Cloud, Google Cloud interconnection and other unnamed cloud providers were said to have provided direct fiber to cloud connectivity for CoreSite’s Santa Clara MTDC customers.

Here’s how network connectivity is achieved within and outside the CoreSite MTDC:

The SMF or MMF from each customer’s colocation cage is physically routed (under the floor) to a fiber wiring cross-connect/patch panel maintained by Coresite.  The output fibers are then routed to a private room where the network/cloud providers maintain their own fiber optic gear (fiber optic multiplexers/switches, DWDM transponders and other fiber transmission equipment) which connect to the outside plant fiber optic cable(s) for each network/cloud services provider.

The outside plant fiber fault detection and restoration are done by each network/cloud provider- either via a mesh topology fiber optic network or 1:1 or N:1 hot standby.  Coresite’s responsibility ends when it delivers the fiber to the provider cages.  They do, however, have network engineers that are responsible for maintenance and trouble shooting in the DC when necessary.

Instead of using private lines or private IP connections,  CoreSite  offers an Interconnect Gateway-SM  provides their enterprise customers a dedicated, high-performance interconnection solution between their cloud and network service providers, while establishing a flexible IT architecture that allows them to adapt to market demands and rapidly evolving technologies.

Core Data Center

CoreSite’s gateway directly integrates enterprises’ WAN architecture into CoreSite’s native cloud and carrier ecosystem using high-speed fiber and virtual interconnections. This solution includes:

-Private network connectivity to the CoreSite data center
-Dedicated cabinets and network hardware for routing, switching, and security
-Direct fiber and virtual interconnections to cloud and network providers
-Technical integration, 24/7/365 monitoring and management from a certified CoreSite Solution Partner
