If your organization has something to show off to customers or prospective employees – a campus, a product, an innovative workplace, you name it – you’ll be challenged to top what CoreSite did in leveraging Concept3D to create a 3D tour of its Reston, Va., data center.
You might as well take the tour now.
Concept3D specializes in creating immersive online experiences with 3D modeling, virtual reality (VR), interactive maps and virtual tour software.
CoreSite turned to the provider to launch Concept3D platform with a virtual tour of CoreSite’s data center campus.
According to a press release from CoreSite and Concept3D, the Concept3D platform is an all-in-one software solution for data centers and other large facilities looking for an efficient and effective way to highlight their facilities and take people — located anywhere in the world on desktop or mobile device — into the facility virtually.
Using the Concept3D platform is easy and tours can be edited at any time with new stops, 360-degree panoramic images, information about the facility, surroundings, and links to more information, and contact forms.
The platform includes a built-in mini-map to orient the user and show the location of tour stops in relation to the rest of the facility. The mini-map can be toggled to select and highlight different levels of a facility.
Zeroing In on a CoreSite’s Data Center
CoreSite’s Reston campus currently includes three facilities: VA1, VA2, and VA3. Upon full build, the Reston campus will offer over a million square feet of data center colocation space, or approximately 100 megawatts of capacity, according to the press release.
CoreSite selected the Concept3D platform to showcase its secure, high-performance facility features, as well as interconnectivity highlights, such as native access to networks and cloud services including AWS Direct Connect, Microsoft Azure ExpressRoute, Alibaba Cloud and IBM Cloud Direct Link.
“The CoreSite team has done a fantastic job of building out its virtual tour using the Concept3D platform,” says Robert Johnson, VP of sales, Concept3D.
“CoreSite benefits from virtual tours as the technology enables it to give prospective customers an immersive, first-hand experience of its facilities and technology. Virtual tours can be used for existing facilities like CoreSite’s VA2, as well as for sites under development to enable the sales and marketing teams to accelerate the sales process.”
“We are excited to launch the virtual tour, it will be instrumental in driving sales conversations and providing content for marketing campaigns,” said Brenda Van der Steen, Vice President of Marketing at CoreSite. “The virtual tour can also serve our training needs, giving employees and partners a way to explore a facility remotely.”
