Batanga, Inc. Brings Music, Video and Community to Five Million US Latinos Monthly Through Internap’s Performance IP(TM) Networking

— Route-Optimized IP Network Service Delivers 100% Availability for

Fast-Growing Web Site That Brings Latin Music to Life —

ATLANTA–(EMWPresswire)–Internap Network Services Corporation (NASDAQ:

INAP), a global provider of end-to-end Internet business solutions,

announced today that Batanga, Inc., the leading next-generation Hispanic

media company reaching US Hispanics, is using Internaps

Performance IP network to power Batanga.com,

one of the most trafficked Web sites in the world offering Latino

culture-oriented entertainment, and its ad network, HispanoClick.

Batanga.com features one of the largest inventories of Latin media

content, with exclusive online music stations, on-demand videos,

lifestyle news and gossip from the entertainment world. Additionally,

the site offers a social networking platform, myBatanga, with over

350,000 registered users creating unique content, blogs, profiles and

playlists. The HispanoClick ad network also reaches the US Hispanic

market by accessing more than 10 million consumers across 800 sites.

Internaps IP network services supply fast,

reliable Internet access for Batanga customers. As a result, their

advertisers are assured mass online exposure to customers due to the

consistent availability of network connectivity.

When our site goes down, we lose money,

said Jochen Fischer, vice president of technology for Batanga, Inc. Having

used a single discount network provider in the past, we needed a more

robust and reliable way to give our audience of more than five million

worldwide monthly unique visitors access to our site. Internap turned

out to be the perfect solution, offering a mix of several tier-one

Internet backbones to guarantee a truly uninterrupted service using the

shortest possible routes. In addition, handing off the engineering

details, such as BGP (Border Gateway Protocol) routing, to the experts

at Internap is saving us money by freeing up our IT staff to focus on

delivering a world-class Web site. Installation was a breeze and the

service has been absolutely flawless from day one.

Internaps Performance IP network service is

unique in the industry. It is based on patented software technology

called MIRO (Managed Internet Routing OptimizerTM)

and a global network of private network access points (PNAPs). The

combination of MIRO and the PNAPs monitors the performance of Internet

backbones around the world and automatically selects the best path for

data to travel. Performance IP offers an industry-leading 100%

availability SLA (service level agreement) giving business and

government organizations the confidence to use Internap for their most

critical Web sites and Internet applications.

Batanga, Inc. is opening new markets through

its innovative Web site and Internaps

Performance IP networking, said Tim

Sullivan, chief technology officer at Internap. They

have built an online community of nearly five million users that relies

on Batanga.com and an impressive advertising network that supports the

Web site and engages the community.

According to the U.S. Census Bureau, the Latino population in the US

will reach 47.8 million by 2010, which will comprise 15.5% of the total

population of the country1. Internaps

Performance IP services and round-the-clock support enable Batanga, Inc.

to access this growing market through advanced Web sites and Internet

applications.
