DENVER -- January 23, 2014

CoreSite Realty Corporation (NYSE:COR), a provider of network-dense,
cloud-enabled enterprise-class data center products and services, today
announced that customers at CoreSite’s recently opened “NY2” data center in
Secaucus, N.J., can directly order connections to the native AWS Direct
Connect deployment at CoreSite’s existing NY1 data center in Manhattan.

By bypassing the public internet, AWS Direct Connect gives CoreSite customers
access to all of AWS’s cloud services through a private, enterprise-grade
network connection. AWS Direct Connect helps customers reduce bandwidth costs,
improve network security and achieve more consistent network performance.
Additionally, the service can be scaled efficiently to meet future connection
needs.

“CoreSite is proud to expand the availability of AWS Direct Connect into New
Jersey as it aligns with our commitment to delivering network-dense,
cloud-enabled data center solutions to customers across the country,” said
Jarrett Appleby, chief operating officer at CoreSite. “Enterprises in
Manhattan and throughout the tri-state metro area can connect directly to AWS
in New Jersey, obtaining enhanced security, reliability and scalability at a
much lower cost to operate while maintaining optimal performance.”

Available as either a 1 Gbps or 10 Gbps connection, AWS Direct Connect is
compatible with all AWS services, including Amazon Simple Storage Service
(S3), Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2), Amazon Virtual Private Cloud
(Amazon VPC) and Amazon Relational Database (RDS). Because the service is
scalable, CoreSite customers can easily provision multiple AWS direct
connections as their capacity needs change.

Opened in December, CoreSite’s NY2 facility was built to create a scalable
option for enterprises looking to expand and reduce cost in the New York metro
area while optimizing performance with direct, low-latency access to the
digital center of Manhattan. CoreSite designed NY2 to address the
performance-sensitive and security requirements of enterprises, with an
abundant number of high-speed network deployments that complement the existing
network, cloud and enterprise density at CoreSite’s NY1 facility.

In addition to New Jersey, CoreSite offers AWS Direct Connect service in Los
Angeles, Silicon Valley, Northern Virginia/DC and Boston. For more information
