 Global Capacity Joins Amazon Web Services’ Partner Network

 Dedicated, Scalable and Secure Connectivity to AWS’ Cloud Platform
              Now Available Through One Marketplace

Chicago, IL, USA, February 12, 2013 - Global Capacity, the leading
telecommunications information and logistics company, today announces its
partnership with Amazon Web Services (AWS), the global leader in cloud
computing, to provide connectivity to AWS Direct Connect locations. Global
Capacity has become a select member of the AWS Partner Network (APN),
providing private network connections to Amazon Web Services (AWS) that can
reduce network costs, increase throughput and deliver more consistent network
performance than Internet-based connections.

AWS customers can take advantage of Global Capacity’s One Marketplace
Access Exchange, a competitive and leading multi-vendor automated access
solution, to procure private, secure Ethernet connectivity between AWS Direct
Connect locations and AWS customer data centers, offices, or colocation
facilities, as well as assist in the design and implementation of unique and
dynamic network environments.

“We are proud to join the AWS Partner Network and to support its efforts to
increase network connectivity options,” states Jack Lodge, President of Global
Capacity. “Through our participation in the AWS program, Global Capacity can
offer its network services to those customers requiring private access to the AWS
cloud. Any customer interconnected to One Marketplace can now utilize Global
Capacity network services to directly connect to AWS.”

Global Capacity’s One Marketplace offers automated pricing and procurement of
optimal access networks. The marketplace provides transparency into access
network pricing and visibility into available capacity across multiple vendors and
geographies. One Marketplace also improves pricing and delivery efficiencies,
and reduces the cost of access networks globally. By providing customers a
single interface through which to design, price and fulfill multi-vendor, multi-
geography access network requirements, One Marketplace dramatically
simplifies and accelerates the delivery of data connectivity.
Ben Edmond, Chief Revenue Officer of Global Capacity, comments, “As the
availability of scalable and secure cloud connectivity rises, more and more
companies seek the benefits of cloud services. Global Capacity’s partnership
with AWS combines the most innovative access network solution and cloud
services in the market today.”
