IBM and Terremark Collaborate With CDC Games to Break New Ground in Online Games

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwire - February 20, 2008) - CDC Games will host their U.S. online infrastructure on IBM (NYSE: IBM) servers housed inside facilities operated by Terremark Worldwide, Inc. (NASDAQ: TMRK), an IBM Business Partner. The combination of CDC Games' innovative platform and IBM's superior hardware together with Terremark's world-class facilities and massive connectivity will bring gamers and fans a high-quality massively multiplayer online game (MMOG) experience.

CDC Games, a business unit of CDC Corporation (NASDAQ: CHINA), is one of China's market leaders of online and mobile games with more than 120 million registered users. It pioneered China's first "free to play, pay for merchandise" MMORPG. In 2007, CDC Games began expanding into new geographies to accelerate the development of online games, and the company recognized it needed to standardize on a server platform that effectively scales to support its ambitious growth in the U.S. market.

As CDC Games' presence grows in the United States, IBM System x servers, powered by IBM X-Architecture, will be key to delivering a user experience characterized by responsiveness, high computing performance and reliability for CDC, while keeping costs and power requirements down. Through Terremark's global operations platform, which combines a worldwide datacenter footprint, plug-and-play access to massive connectivity from more than 160 global carriers and the industry's most advanced utility computing platform, CDC has the ideal managed infrastructure for their platform.

"We are excited to partner with IBM, a leading provider of hardware systems for the video game industry, and Terremark, a leading provider of global IT infrastructure services," said Jeff Longoria, president of CDC Games International, a unit of CDC Games. "IBM offers us very reliable, competitively priced products built on innovative energy-saving green initiatives that will help us become one of the premier publishers of online games in North America. With Terremark's advanced network topology, our gaming infrastructure will be located at the core of the North American Internet, which will help to deliver the best user experience for our gamers."

Marvin Wheeler, president of Terremark's U.S. Commercial Business Unit, said, "Performance, connectivity and availability are critical for CDC's online games portfolio, and our robust, utility-enabled technology platform and comprehensive suite of IT infrastructure services, along with IBM's industry-leading servers, will provide all of those qualities to CDC's MMOG users."

The IBM System x portfolio of highly reliable servers helps games companies use less power while scaling quickly, easily and inexpensively. They also make ideal platforms for virtualization, helping clients develop games faster and at a lower cost.

"IBM aims to consistently provide the highest level of service level agreements and quality to games and Virtual World companies," said Daniel Witteveen, East Coast executive, IBM Games & Interactive Entertainment. "We are pleased to be working closely with Terremark to deliver their world-class managed hosting infrastructure for games built on IBM's leading hardware. Together, we're enabling CDC to deliver outstanding experiences to millions of gamers."

IBM has a strong global focus on the media and entertainment industry across all of its services and products, serving all the major industry segments -- entertainment, publishing, information providers, media networks and advertising. For more information, visit http://www.ibm.com/media.
