Realty Corporation (NYSE:COR), a provider of secure, reliable,
high-performance data center solutions, today announced that for the
third consecutive year it has achieved an average uptime exceeding
99.9999 percent, or “six-nines,” across its platform of data center
Six-nines availability reduces unscheduled downtime to less than 32
seconds per year, against CoreSite’s 100%-uptime service level
agreement. Compared to the industry benchmark of five-nines
availability, which correlates to downtime exceeding 5 minutes annually,
six-nines availability provides businesses with nearly 10 times the
statistical reliability in the data center environment supporting
optimal performance of mission-critical data and IT infrastructure.
“We are pleased to again be an industry leader in data center
reliability, reflecting the professionalism, training and care of our
facilities teams as well as the high quality of our enterprise-class
data centers,” said Tom Ray, CEO at CoreSite. “As part of our commitment
to provide best-in-class service to our customers, we take pride in
providing exceptionally high levels of reliability across all of our
product and service offerings. Achieving six-nines availability for the
third consecutive year, including 100-percent availability through
Hurricane Sandy in 2012, is a testament to the quality and dependability
of those services and our people. Importantly, the reliability of our
data centers underscores the high standards and rigorous training we
commit to in providing secure and high-performance solutions to
enterprises, networks and clouds as they work together in CoreSite
facilities to power and support the information, communication, and
technology needs of the world’s most demanding customers.”
