BEIJING, Jan. 30, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- ChinaCache International Holdings Ltd. ("ChinaCache" or the "Company") (Nasdaq:CCIH), the leading total solutions provider of Internet content and application delivery services in China, today announced that it has expanded its services in the Asia-Pacific region with Equinix, Inc. ("Equinix")(Nasdaq:EQIX), the global interconnection and data center company. This new deployment in Equinix's International Business Exchange data center in Hong Kong expands ChinaCache's presence to nine Equinix facilities worldwide.
"Deploying in Equinix's data center in Hong Kong is an important strategic initiative that expands our Asia-Pacific presence and bolsters our capabilities in major markets in Europe, Asia and North America. Internet traffic in the Asia-Pacific region is growing exponentially, creating greater demand for quality content delivery network providers such as ChinaCache," commented Mr. Song Wang, Founder, Chairman and CEO of ChinaCache. "Our relationship with Equinix and access to its vast network choices and premium services provide us with the enhanced network connectivity needed to address this growing demand. Moreover, its rich ecosystem will help us connect to a sizeable marketplace of businesses including content providers, enterprises and networks, which represents a wealth of potential new customers and revenue opportunities."
With this installation, ChinaCache customers have greater access to the Company's content delivery network services in key markets including New York, Washington D.C., Silicon Valley, Dallas, Chicago, Los Angeles, Seattle, Paris and Hong Kong. The Company believes the cooperation can enhance it to become a better gateway to serve international customers accessing China market as well as for the Chinese customers expanding overseas.
By peering through the Equinix Internet Exchange, ChinaCache can interconnect directly with its business partners and networks. This direct interconnection optimizes access, latency and uptime performance by eliminating network hops, increases network efficiency and reduces bandwidth transit costs. In addition, by expanding its coverage inside Equinix's global data centers, ChinaCache will have the scalability it needs to broaden its suite of services and expand into new markets to quickly respond and adapt to emerging market demands.
Jim Poole, General Manager of Global Networks and Mobility, Equinix said, "We are very pleased that ChinaCache has chosen to offer its services through Equinix's data center in Hong Kong, taking advantage of its strategic location and the opportunities the Asia-Pacific region presents. With this deployment, ChinaCache can host its networks closer to end-users in the region, improve the performance of its content delivery network connectivity and enhance user experience to maintain its competitive advantage. We look forward to continuing to support ChinaCache in its global expansion efforts."
