Nucleus Partners with InterNAP Network Services
Company plans to leverage InterNAP relationship to offer clients
maximum efficiency and redundancy in the highest speed Internet
CHICAGO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Oct. 7, 1999-- Nucleus, Inc. today again demonstrated its commitment to offer middle
market businesses the highest quality Internet based technology solutions by announcing a partnership with InterNAP Network
Services Corp. (Nasdaq: INAP - news).
Nucleus customers will receive InterNAP's advanced Internet connectivity service that routes customer data to and from
destinations on the Internet in a manner that minimizes data loss by avoiding the Internet's conventional traffic exchange process
known as ''peering''. With this new partnership, Nucleus customers will gain a competitive advantage from InterNAP's P-NAP
technology and ASsimilator(tm) software that orchestrate the routing of mission-critical data in a faster, more reliable, more
managed fashion than conventional Internet technology.
''This partnership strengthens the solution that we deliver to our clients and reinforces our commitment to continually offer the
highest quality and most advanced Internet based technologies,'' said John Paulsen, President and CEO of Nucleus. ''The
speed, quality and redundancy of the InterNAP service directly enhances our solution offering and will greatly benefit our clients
in moving to an ASP model.''
With this partnership, Nucleus plans to deploy their services in each domestic city that InterNAP has deployed a P-NAP
facility. Nucleus plans to offer services from 8 P-NAP facility cities by the end of 1999.
''Nucleus's e-business solutions combined with our connectivity services will give the middle market the competitive edge they
need to succeed,'' explains Mike Ortega, vice-president of sales and marketing.
''We look forward to providing Nucleus with our unique quality of Internet service nationwide.''
