Savvis Responds to Demand

SAN JOSE, Calif. -- Responding to growing global customer demand for integrated hosting and network services, SAVVIS, Inc. (NASDAQ:SVVS), a global leader in IT infrastructure services for business applications, today announced plans for a new data center in London and expansion of existing data centers in Singapore and the New York metropolitan area. All three facilities will provide a broad range of IT infrastructure services including colocation, managed hosting, virtualized and utility computing, managed networks, and security, to meet the global requirements of enterprise IT. The announcement was made today from SAVVIS 2007 Investor Forum in San Jose, CA.

The company also announced that both the London and Singapore facilities will offer SAVVIS Proximity Hosting to key financial exchanges colocated within the data centers. Initially, the expanded Singapore facility will offer direct connectivity and low latency network access to the Singapore Exchange.

“SAVVIS has had great success with our managed hosting offering in the United Kingdom and the New York area, and has seen significant indications of growing demand for those services in the Asia/Pacific region,” said Phil Koen, Chief Executive Officer of SAVVIS. “We are delighted to be able to build on our existing presence and strong sales and operations teams already in place in these three excellent markets for SAVVIS’ services. Additionally, as major global financial centers, London and Singapore are ideally situated for expansion of our Proximity Hosting service, already in place in the New York area and in development in Chicago, which enables direct connectivity for our customers to major financial exchanges.”
