LONDON, September 15, 2010 - Savvis, Inc. (Nasdaq: SVVS), a global leader in cloud infrastructure and

Savvis Symphony VPDC allows enterprises to quickly and securely design
and deploy a complete set of enterprise-class data centre services for a
variety of applications. There is no need to physically procure, install,
configure or manage any hardware.

"Many organisations are turning to cloud computing, having realised that
this model of IT management can increase business flexibility and reduce
capital expenditures and costs," said Neil Cresswell, managing director for
EMEA at Savvis. "But unlike mass market cloud offerings, Savvis Symphony VPDC
is an enterprise-class service that addresses concerns large organisations
have about privacy, security, scalability and performance."

With two service profiles, Essential and Balanced, and a third, Premier,
planned for a follow-up release, Savvis Symphony VPDC's multilevel service
profile capability provides a range of features, support levels and
performance. With enterprise-class security, quality of service and
service-level agreements, Savvis Symphony VPDC meets the needs of Web
hosting, mission-critical, test and development, and other applications.

Launched in the U.S. in June, Savvis Symphony VPDC is part of the Savvis
Symphony line of cloud services. Savvis Symphony offers fully managed hosting
services on top of fully managed, enterprise-class infrastructure. The line

    - Savvis Symphony VPDC and Savvis Symphony Open - both public
      cloud services - which offer differentiated service levels with
      predictable performance for scenarios ranging from development and
      testing of new applications to automated capacity increases due to
      seasonality or unforeseen demand for IT resources; and
    - Savvis Symphony Dedicated - a private cloud service - which
      allows clients to tailor and scale their dedicated infrastructure at
      their own pace.

"We're finding that CIOs and IT directors want to run mission-critical
applications in the cloud at enterprise-class levels of availability,
security and connectivity while retaining a flexible architecture with
capacity for expansion," Cresswell said.

Savvis Symphony includes converged cloud network options ranging from
public connectivity over Savvis' Tier 1 IP network backbone to secure,
low-latency, quality-of-service-enabled Application Transport Services (ATS),
Savvis' core Multi-Protocol Label Switching (MPLS)-based service. The
low-latency distribution network allows Savvis to offer a complete,
end-to-end, quality of service-enabled solution for clients - from inside the
data centre to the end-user location.

The availability of Savvis Symphony VPDC coincides with the completion of
a 20,000-sellable-square-foot expansion at the Slough data centre.

The approximately 20 million pounds (US$32 million) expansion project,
announced in April, was necessary to meet the growing European demand for
Savvis' IT infrastructure and cloud computing services. The ISO
27001-accredited Slough data centre now includes a total of 43,000 square
feet of data centre floor space.

The Savvis Symphony suite of services are currently available in 18 of
Savvis' 31 data centres, with global access via Savvis' network across North
, Europe and Asia. For more information, visit
