Tokyo Content Access Point(TM)(CAP) Provides Comprehensive Global Content Delivery Services to Organizations throughout Japan

Exodus Communications(R), K.K., the leader in complex Internet hosting and managed services, and Mirror Image Internet K.K, an innovative provider of Internet content delivery services and subsidiary of Xcelera Inc. (AMEX: XLA), today announced the availability of comprehensive content delivery offerings in Japan. These offerings are powered by the recently deployed Mirror Image Content Access Point(TM) (CAP) facility located in Exodus' state-of-the-art Internet Data Center (IDC) in Tokyo. The Exodus / Mirror Image partnership complements Exodus' 3-tier content distribution model, a suite of high-performance Internet content distribution solutions that utilizes Mirror Image's CAP network as the second tier.

The Mirror Image CAP in Tokyo is part of an integrated delivery network of CAPs deployed around the world. By providing the second tier or network acceleration layer of Exodus 3-tier content distribution model, the Mirror Image global CAP network serves as the foundation for Exodus' Content Distribution and Caching Services, which include Mirror Image's instaContentSM Global Distribution Service. Mirror Image and Exodus(R) are offering the instaContent service to Japanese organizations who have high content distribution needs and want to maximize Web site return on investment (ROI) by increasing revenue opportunities, decreasing infrastructure costs and improving customer satisfaction.

"Exodus recognizes that with mass-market-scale adoption of e-commerce, participation in auctions and other consumer activities, content delivery is vital to our customers' success," said Bob Weingarten, General Manager of Exodus Asia Pacific and Senior Vice President of Exodus Communications, Inc. "The combination of our managed and professional service offerings, state-of-the-art IDC facilities and expertise with the innovative technology and solutions from Mirror Image provides customers with powerful content distribution capabilities that deliver improved Internet performance."

"We are excited to expand our CAP network into Japan and delighted to work with Exodus to provide innovative value-based solutions to our customers," said Chris Reisig, Vice President International Sales of Mirror Image Internet, Inc. "The roll-out of our services into this market reinforces our position as an innovative provider of global content delivery solutions, consistently offering all of our customers fresher content faster to improve their customer retention rate and quality of service while reducing their infrastructure costs."

By combining Mirror Image's enterprise-class CAP network and content delivery services with Exodus' industry-leading IDC infrastructure and managed and professional services, Exodus will be able to offer measurably superior content delivery performance to more than 4,500 of its global customers, without sacrificing security, reliability and scalability.

About Exodus' Content Distribution Services

Designed as a complete solution, Exodus' Content Distribution and Caching Services are based on a three-tiered architecture that provides caching at multiple levels within the Exodus network: the server, the network itself, and its edge. At Tier I, the server acceleration level, cutting-edge content accelerators serve popular site objects directly to end users from its main memory. Tier II is comprised of network acceleration services developed by Mirror Image Internet that provide virtually unlimited scalability and around-the-clock surge control in case of sudden, unexpected peaks in traffic. The third tier, or Edge Acceleration services take advantage of the Content Bridge alliance to improve end-user experience and visibility for content providers.
