("CCNA"), the global business unit of ChinaCache International Holdings Ltd., ("ChinaCache" or the "Company") (Nasdaq:CCIH), the leading total solutions provider of internet content and application delivery services in China, announced today that it has deployed a node in Interxion's Frankfurt data center to expand its capacity and presence in Europe.
In order to accommodate the rising number of European companies seeking to access data and applications from China as well as supply data and application-intensive services to China, ChinaCache has deployed another node in Frankfurt to increase its European capacity by 400%. The increase will allow ChinaCache to expand coverage to more European countries as well as improve overall availability and performance.

With the new node located in Interxion's Frankfurt data center, ChinaCache has four nodes in Europe and a total of 240 nodes worldwide. With these nodes deployed in 13 countries and over 110 cities, ChinaCache provides an enhanced network covering the whole world.
"ChinaCache is the premiere Asian CDN provider, and we are thrilled to welcome the company to our Content Hub," said Jonathan Wood, head of digital media, Interxion.
