YOUniversityTV Recruits Internap Managed Server and Content Delivery Network Solution

ATLANTA – Internap Network Services Corporation (NASDAQ: INAP), a global provider of end-to-end Internet business solutions, announced today its Content Delivery Network (CDN) and Managed Server solutions are powering YOUniversityTV, the world’s first wholly integrated College Video Resource Community (CVRC) that provides prospective college students with an all-access pass to the campuses of colleges and universities nationwide. Internap was selected due to its engineering expertise and integrated technology solutions designed to support fast-growing, Web-based businesses.

A combination search engine, social network and video resource library, YOUniversityTV is applying innovative workflow software to streamline the complex, time-consuming and expensive ritual of visiting potential schools prior to applying. With more than 200 schools already represented, including state universities and Ivy League institutions as well as prestigious liberal arts schools, YOUniversityTV is serving as a primary resource for both colleges and their current and prospective students.

“Previously, finding, evaluating and selecting a college was neither Web-based nor streamlined,” said Ron Reis, chief executive officer and co-founder of YOUniversityTV. “We are leveraging Internap’s powerful network and hosting services to connect students with schools while simplifying the tour process. We did our due diligence on the many players in the CDN market and have direct experience with other CDN providers. We selected Internap because they have an end-to-end CDN solution that meets the best standards in the industry for quality and service.”

Schools such as Cornell and Stanford see YOUniversityTV as an effective way to attract prospective students, who are increasingly accustomed to researching decisions on the Web. YOUniversityTV’s free site is receiving more than one million hits each month, with 20 percent of the traffic coming from exchange students outside the United States. As a result, schools across the country can reach the best applicants, and students worldwide are able to easily tour US colleges.
