CoreSite Celebrates Success of Channel Program

Further Investment into Supporting Partners to be Discussed by CoreSite at the 2015 Channel Partners Conference

Channel Partners Expo 2015

DENVER--()--CoreSite Realty Corporation (NYSE: COR), a premier provider of secure, reliable, high-performance data center solutions across the U.S., today announced that it will continue to grow its channel program by adding resources and expanding the program’s scope. Details of CoreSite’s channel program enhancements will be shared by CoreSite employees at the upcoming Channel Partners conference in Las Vegas, NV, March 16-18, 2015.

Over the past year, CoreSite’s channel program has seen tremendous growth due to the formation of new relationships with key master agents and strengthening relationships with established strategic partners.

“We’ve worked hard to formalize a high-quality channel program and back it with the resources needed to support our partners and enable their success,” said Dave Sroka, vice president of agent and channel sales. “The feedback we’ve received from our partner advisory board is very valuable and we’ve worked purposefully to implement their suggestions with regard to compensation, education and marketing.”

To further support its growing partner relationships, CoreSite will expand its channel program to include the Value-Added Reseller (VAR) community by making products available through key distributors.

“The success of CoreSite’s channel program is driven by the daily focus and resources applied by our channel team in supporting our valued partners,” said Steven Smith, senior vice president of sales at CoreSite. “We look forward to continuing to develop innovative ways to work with our channel partners to reach enterprise customers.”

Agent partners and resellers can sell solutions across CoreSite’s scalable platform of over 2.7 million square feet of network-dense, cloud-enabled, data center capacity. CoreSite owns and operates 17 enterprise-class data centers in eight key North American markets, including Los Angeles, New York/New Jersey, Silicon Valley, Chicago, Northern Virginia/Washington D.C., Boston, Denver and Miami.

CoreSite channel team members will host a booth and reception at the upcoming 2015 Channel Partners Conference and Expo in Las Vegas, NV, March 16-18.
