Federal Communications Commission Selects Terremark’s Enterprise Cloud to Support Online Presence

FCC's Selection Centered Around Cloud Platform's FISMA Compliance and Ability to Securely Connect to Agency's Dedicated Hardware

MIAMI, Nov 18, 2010 (BUSINESS WIRE) -- Terremark Worldwide, Inc. (NASDAQ:TMRK), a leading global provider of managed IT infrastructure services, today announced that the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) has selected Terremark's Enterprise Cloud platform to support its strategy to leverage cloud computing, including the agency's plan to host its web site in the cloud. Terremark's highly secure Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) offering will support the FCC's efforts to provide richer online services to citizens through a comprehensive overhaul that includes a complete and comprehensive redesign of FCC.gov and its online systems.

The Enterprise Cloud provides the FCC with on-demand access to reliable computing resources delivered from an IaaS platform that is certified and accredited to Federal Information Security Managements Act (FISMA) requirements. The unique ability of Terremark's industry-leading cloud computing solution to directly and securely connect with dedicated servers housed in the FCC's datacenter was another vital differentiator in the agency's selection process.

The Enterprise Cloud, which is based on Terremark's proven utility computing platform and delivered from top-tier, massively connected datacenters, provides the FCC with a dedicated pool of processing, storage and networking that allows the deployment of computing resources in real-time. The platform is supported by highly experienced, certified professionals who are exceedingly knowledgeable about government security requirements and employ various security measures, from a proprietary memory analytics and integrity validation system to managed intrusion detection and prevention, to secure the customer environments.

"The FCC's selection of the Enterprise Cloud serves as further validation of the compelling value Terremark's cloud computing solutions provide our federal customers," said Bruce Hart, COO of Terremark Federal Group. "With various federal government agencies leveraging our ultra-secure and highly scalable cloud platform to meet their real-time IT infrastructure needs, Terremark continues to distinguish itself as the cloud computing leader in the federal market. Our proven ability to comply with the highest security standards while delivering leading-edge IaaS solutions designed to fulfill each customer's specific requirements ideally positions our company to further benefit from the U.S. government's increasing adoption of cloud computing."
