Company Adopts Full Line of Ensim Software forProfessional Web Hosting

SUNNYVALE, Calif., May 27, 2003 - Ensim Corporation, the global leader in hosting automation software, today announced an expanded partnership with top 10 web hosting provider, Affinity Internet. Affinity has adopted the full line of Ensim professional Web hosting solutions, including the recently announced Ensim WEBppliance Basic control panel software for Linux; Ensim WEBppliance Pro control panel software for Linux and Windows; and Ensim's hosting management platform ServerXchange and Virtual Private Servers. Affinity will offer these solutions with all new SkyNetWEB and ValueWeb dedicated server plans.

Affinity's ValueWeb offers dedicated hosting for small-to-medium sized businesses looking for competitively priced, dedicated solutions. The Company's SkyNetWEB brand provides managed dedicated server solutions including web and application hosting to businesses hosting mission critical applications

"Affinity selected Ensim for the strength of its product portfolio and market leadership," said John Zdanowski, vice president of product management for Affinity. "Specifically, the Ensim WEBppliance control panel family exceeded our top requirements for professional-grade security, reporting, ease-of-use, and extensibility, as well as its support for both the Linux and Windows platforms."

By standardizing on Ensim's product family, Affinity should experience greater operating efficiencies, as it will now be able to offer a common user interface (GUI) across its dedicated hosting brands. Affinity customers stand to benefit from Ensim's built-in quick start guides and user tutorials that minimize day-to-day support issues. With a standard user environment, Affinity provides an easier upgrade path to higher priced hosting plans, as their customers will already be familiar with the Ensim-powered GUI. Ensim provides a single source to meet the needs of its diverse customer set, and a wide range of robust, competitively priced, dedicated server offerings.

"Affinity Internet has long been one of the most innovative companies in the hosting industry," said Steve Dauber, vice president of marketing for Ensim Corporation. "We're excited that they've chose to partner with us in their drive to lead the dedicated server market by offering our high performance solutions."

In concert with the recent product announcements from Ensim, Affinity has expanded its server offerings in the value dedicated server market. Affinity now offers new high-value dedicated server solutions for small businesses based on Ensim WEBppliance Basic, as well as more robust solutions for their growing reseller base, built around Ensim WEBppliance Pro.
