Internap and CityReach International Announce Marketing Partnership Tuesday 22 May 2001 PDF Print CityReach Joins Internap's Channel Partner Program LONDON and SEATTLE, WA, May 21, 2001 -- CityReach International, the pan-European provider of infrastructure and managed services to the business Internet, and Seattle-based Internap Network Services (NASDAQ: INAP), the leading intelligent routing services provider, announced today that they will jointly market and promote their services and products in the US and Europe. The partnership agreement enables Internap to extend its services to customers in the eight European cities where CityReach International has facilities, while CityReach adds Internap's Overlay Network to an array of services it already provides at its European locations. "This partnership takes us well beyond a typical vendor-client relationship," said CityReach CEO Sanjaya Addanki. "By working together we can take advantage of each other's core capabilities and optimise the end result for our customers. CityReach is recognised as the leading provider of carrier-neutral facilities in Europe. In addition to our 930,000 sq. ft. of facilities space we also offer a series of value-added services including managed storage services, managed servers and Internet access products. At the same time, Internap will be able to offer remote connectivity services to complement the CityReach service portfolio. I believe that each company's services will be embraced by our customers." CityReach has developed highly secure data centres in eight major European cities including Amsterdam, London, Dublin, Stockholm, Budapest, Berlin, Munich and Paris that cater to clients who use the Internet for a variety of mission critical operations and processes that demand the highest levels of security and guaranteed reliability. "Internap is excited about utilising the world-class CityReach data centres and their value-added services in Europe as a platform for offering our premium Internet connectivity services," said Tony Naughtin, President and CEO of Internap Network Services. "Even if Internap doesn't have a Service Point in the same European city, a customer in a CityReach facility can gain access to Internap's European Service Points because of the low cost for long-haul fibre throughout the continent. In effect, Internap's already established Service Points in London and Amsterdam can service as a hub and spoke system for European customers to access Internap's Overlay Network and benefit from our intelligent routing technology." Internap's Overlay Network continuously monitors the traffic situation over all the major Internet backbones and routes mission-critical data in a faster, more reliable and more managed fashion than conventional Internet technology.
