The new partnership gives business customers access to colocation and cloud services.

Glo Fiber Business is enhancing its bond with its business customer base through a new partnership with core CoreSite that will provide them with colocation services at their Washington, D.C. campus.

CoreSite’s Washington, D.C., data center campus provides data center services, colocation services, and meet-me-room facilities to customers throughout the region. The CoreSite campus also facilitates the secure interconnection of domestic fiber networks, cloud and AI providers throughout the United States.

Each of the companies gains something from this agreement.

For Glo Fiber Business customers, greater access to cloud services will be a significant benefit.

CoreSite colocation will provide local, direct, and secure data exchange in Washington, D.C., ensuring that businesses can seamlessly connect directly to major cloud providers, including Amazon, Google, Microsoft, Oracle, and IBM. The D.C. campus meets FISMA and FedRAMP deployment requirements, private enterprise standards, and data sovereignty laws, making it ideal for government entities, financial institutions, and enterprises.

Meanwhile, CoreSite colocation customers will have another fiber connectivity source.

"Companies, municipalities and educational institutions of all sizes will benefit from our partnership to leverage peering services and direct cloud connectivity in the CoreSite Washington, D.C. Data Center,” said Craig Venable, VP of commercial sales for Glo Fiber Business.
