CoreSite, a leading hybrid IT solutions provider and subsidiary of American Tower Corporation, announced its expansion in the Miami market with the acquisition of a modern, purpose-built 103,000-square-foot data center (MI2) located at 2100 NW 84th Avenue in Doral, Florida. CoreSite also owns and operates a 43,000-square-foot data center (MI1) in downtown Miami located at 2115 NW 22nd Street.

“Miami serves as a key conduit for businesses to manage and grow operations in both North and South America. This expansion in the CoreSite Miami data center campus will provide the hybrid IT solution enterprises turn to for secure and scalable connectivity to South America from the U.S”

The MI2 Miami data center is a freestanding facility in America’s Gateway Park built to withstand a Category 5 hurricane with a 185-mph-gust-rated roof. As part of the integration process, CoreSite will be connecting MI2 to the company’s MI1 data center, which will offer customers enhanced access to a more robust ecosystem in addition to the fiber providers currently available in the facility. With the augmentation of MI2 to CoreSite’s Miami data center campus, businesses will have more IT infrastructure options and immediate capacity to enter into, or expand their footprint, in the growing Miami market.
