DENVER--(BUSINESS WIRE)--CoreSite Realty Corporation (NYSE:COR) (the “Company”), a premier provider of secure, reliable, high-performance data center, cloud and interconnection solutions in major U.S. metropolitan areas, supports the ever expanding needs of the media and entertainment industry as they look to differentiate their digital services and workflows.
Rising competitive pressures and insatiable content demand have prompted media and entertainment companies to evaluate and revolutionize their technology solutions. The unprecedented times experienced in the first half of 2020 have also given rise to more virtual events and content streaming. However, the digital media workflow is a complex challenge to solve at the best of times. Full digital media workflow requires a robust ecosystem of studios, post-production services, distribution companies, and numerous other entities to effectively deliver content to end users. It is inefficient and costly to try to manage all of these various providers on an individual basis to deliver an end product, especially considering physical distance between providers. As each company looks to digitally transform their business and utilize hybrid cloud for managing their workflow, they are looking for ways to interconnect and share the content across all of the various platforms and workstreams.
By designing an architecture with hyper-connected colocation at the center, CoreSite becomes a one-stop-shop that provides direct access to a complete ecosystem of networks, clouds, IT service providers and enterprises. Organizations will benefit from a more efficient workflow with a simple cross connect.
“In the broadcast industry, the ability to stay on the air no matter the situation is paramount to our success,” says Tab Butler, Senior Director of Media Management & Post Production, MLB Network. “As a local vendor partner, who has a dense and scalable work environment, CoreSite has proven to meet each of our business requirements, and be well equipped to handle all of our disaster recovery needs.”
By leveraging CoreSite’s expertise and historical performance record, media and entertainment companies have access to an optimal environment to transform and modernize digital business with the components for the most agile, dynamic infrastructure that can be adapted as demand or requirements change. CoreSite’s high-performance data centers, leading uptime, and hyper-connected ecosystems, deliver a holistic infrastructure solution to meet the industry’s needs.
“As a career-long advocate of technology for media and entertainment companies, I know that CoreSite is perfectly positioned to support the specific and demanding needs of this industry,” says Maile Kaiser, CoreSite’s SVP of Sales. “Across our entire portfolio, we’ve been able to bring together the vendors involved in the media supply chain – from creation to delivery. This has given us a strong story for media and entertainment prospects looking to create a more efficient workflow.”
