ChinaCache And Microsoft Establish Strategic Partnership

BEIJING, Aug. 13, 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, announced today that it has established a strategic partnership with Microsoft Corporation ("Microsoft") (Nasdaq:MSFT). The Company's self-service CDN platform, Webluker, will integrate its CDN and other services with Windows Azure China and provide these services to customers in China, and will migrate its hosting to Windows Azure in China in the meantime.

By building on the Windows Azure technology, ChinaCache will be able to scale Webluker as its user base grows. Webluker is sold under a "pay-as-you-go" model, enabling businesses to match the services to their needs and reduce IT investment.

"We are pleased to have ChinaCache as our strategic partner for Windows Azure China. The Company has provided Microsoft with valuable services for more than six years, and we are delighted to take our partnership to the next level with this agreement. The high-quality cloud services made possible by Windows Azure, coupled with ChinaCache's expertise in content and application delivery, will provide clients with unparalleled ability to drive user satisfaction and operational efficiency," said Dr. Ya-Qin Zhang, Corporate Vice President of Microsoft Corporation and Chairman of Microsoft Asia-Pacific R&D Group. "There is a strong and growing demand for secure, reliable and speedy cloud services in China, and we look forward to working more closely with ChinaCache to build Windows Azure into one of the biggest, best cloud computing platforms in the Chinese market."

"We are thrilled to partner with Microsoft as it brings Windows Azure into China. This is the first global company whose cloud technology is being offered to Chinese users, and we believe Windows Azure will be an ideal choice for enterprises in China through its combination of flexible access to data, speed and security," added Mr. Song Wang, Founder, Chairman and CEO of ChinaCache. "Cloud computing is meaningful only when it provides a quality end-user experience, which is guaranteed by best-in-class CDN and a comprehensive suite of value-added services. The partnership is in line with our goal of becoming an indispensable part of the cloud computing ecosystem, and we believe that the fast-growing cloud economy presents a number of exciting expansion opportunities for ChinaCache."
