LONDON & MOSCOW -- October 17, 2013

IXcellerate, Moscow's premier carrier neutral datacenter, today announces that
Orange Business Services, a leading global integrator of communications
solutions, has established a point of presence in IXcellerate Moscow One

This move creates an access point that connects the datacenter to Orange’s
high-speed multi-service network, offering both IXcellerate and Orange
customers optimized connectivity, as well as unbeatable scalability. On top of
being able to provide national and international telecoms and data network
services to its corporate clients from within the Moscow One datacenter,
Orange also removes the need for costly metropolitan leased line connections
and allowing them direct access to its extensive global network.

Vladimir Valkovich, Head of Technical department, Orange Business Services in
Russia and the CIS, commented, “Optimized connectivity is key to our corporate
clients and combining this with a world class Tier3+ datacenter means we can
provide more complete services to our clients. We have many financial services
clients who are highly focused on service quality and this move will enhance
our offering.”

“With our western standard datacenter in Moscow, Orange’s customers can take
advantage of the best that is available in datacenter operations in Moscow,
whilst focusing on their core business expansion in Russia.” saidGuy
