euro909.com to Unveil One of Europe's Largest Internet Data Centers as Part of Pan-European Hosting Initiative
State-of-the-art Web/application hosting facilities to employ Teleglobe backbone connection
COPENHAGEN, Denmark - June 28, 2000 - euro909.com A/S (NASADAQ ADS: ENON, Warrant: ENONW), today announced that it will launch a new flagship Internet data center capable of housing more than 1,500 servers and delivering one of the strongest high-availability bandwidth capacities in Europe. Expected to become operational by August 1, 2000, the hosting facilities will be located within euro909.com's new 2,700 square meter (approximately 29,663 square feet) Soborg, Denmark property.
Equipped with cutting edge security, redundancy, reliability, and management features, the new data center will offer a premium hosting environment for euro909.com customers. The facilities were designed with a wide range of physical security features, including state-of-the-art smoke detection and fire suppression systems, 24x7 secured access and video camera surveillance, as well as security breach alarms. The server room was specially-designed with flooring to prevent water damage and with redundant temperature control and air conditioning systems. The center will deliver the highest levels of reliability through a number of redundant subsystems, such as multiple fiber trunk uplinks, fully redundant power backups, and a diesel-powered backup generator.
"The construction of the new data center gives euro909.com an increased technical ability to support clients' mission-critical applications and Web projects," said Aldo Petersen, chief executive officer (CEO) of euro909.com. "The facilities will initially service more than 20,000 Web-hosting accounts and has the capacity to host tens of thousands more. As euro909.com acquires additional hosting companies, such as Netbasen, we plan to integrate them into this data center."
Teleglobe Backbone Connection
Through an agreement between euro909.com's subsidiary, Digiweb Danmark (www.digiweb.dk) and Teleglobe (NYSE, TSE: TGO), a leading global provider of broadband services, the new data center will secure a broadband connection to Teleglobe's extensive global network. The agreement provides increased bandwidth capacity to hosted Web sites through an STM-1 line (equal to 155 Megabits per second (Mbps)) connected directly to Teleglobe's GlobeSystemsm multimedia backbone.
At the same time, Digiweb maintains its agreement with Tele Danmark A/S (NYSE: TLD) for full redundant delivery through two E-3 Internet routing systems (each capable of 34Mbps). The combined capacity provides the data center with total access to the Internet at 223Mbps.
"We feel this agreement with Teleglobe provides us with the necessary flexibility to follow-through with our overall strategy and expansion plans for Scandinavia and Europe without having to find new backbone suppliers for each country we enter," said Jan Johansson, CEO of Digiweb. "Greater bandwidth gives our customers and end-users greater access and more reliability during peak demand periods together with a high level of up-time."
"We are very pleased to provide Digiweb with our broadband services within the competitive European market, and we look forward to expanding with them throughout Europe and providing additional bandwidth solutions stemming from our worldwide backbone," said Morten Jaeger Petersen, head of marketing for Teleglobe Denmark. "The expansion strategy of euro909.com and Digiweb matches our $5 billion investment plan over the next five years to expand GlobeSystem into 160 major cities throughout the world. More than just the deployment of capacity, GlobeSystem is the integration of service creation, reach, technology and capacity - each of which will play a critical role in satisfying new, bandwidth-intensive applications on a global scale."
Teleglobe Inc. (NYSE, TSE: TGO) is a leading global provider of broadband services with the most extensive global Internet network delivering advanced broadband applications through its network of terrestrial cables, submarine cables and satellite facilities to established carriers as well as consumers, corporations, ISP's and broadcasters in more than 100 countries.
