ChinaCache Expands Asia-Pacific Capabilities With Equinix Deployment

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."
