IceWEB Enters into Consulting Agreement with Open Data Centers

Open Data Centers to jointly market and sell services and support operations in Kansas City Data Center

IceWEB has signed a consulting agreement along with a separate Joint Marketing and Sales Agreement with Open Data Centers, LLC, a New Jersey limited liability company ("ODC") and 1stPoint Communications, LLC, a New Jersey limited liability company ("FP"). ODC will provide operational and sales expertise to enhance the capabilities and operations of IceWEB's Computers & Tele-com, Inc. and KCNAP, LLC subsidiaries ("collectively "CTC") in Kansas City, Missouri. In addition, CTC, KCNAP, FP and ODC will jointly market and sell their services.

"We are very pleased to welcome Mr. Levitt to our team, and look forward to his participation in furthering IceWEB's operational objectives," stated Hal Compton, Sr., IceWEB's Chairman and Interim CEO. "He contributes his experience and expertise in many areas of the information technology, telecommunications and data center fields, and brings a valuable perspective on the issues and opportunities facing the Company. In addition, we believe that the ODC sales agreement will be able to generate sales momentum in our data center and wireless businesses."

Erik Levitt, a founding partner of Open Data Centers, has over twenty three years of experience in the telecommunications industry. He serves as the Chief Executive Officer of Open Data Centers, LLC, 1st Point Communications, LLC and Endstream Communications, LLC. Prior to founding Endstream in 2007 and subsequently FP and ODC in 2012, Mr. Levitt founded Core Technology Services, Inc., a leading network managed services provider for the financial, legal and professional services industries, in 1995. In 2004 Core was acquired by Access Integrated Technologies, Inc. (AccessIT), and he served as the President and COO of AccessIT Managed Services, a subsidiary of AccessIT. Access IT Managed Services managed day-to-day operations of AccessIT's data center facilities nationwide and a worldwide network infrastructure. Mr. Levitt has a degree in International Business and Management from the Stern School of Business at New York University. "We are excited about the collaborative opportunities that this relationship presents. The companies operate similar telecommunications and data center infrastructures, but have a great deal of geographic diversity," commented Levitt. "Customers of both IceWEB and ODC will soon benefit from a new set of services offered jointly under the agreement, including primary data center redundancy, disaster recovery services, private and public cloud offerings, and advanced storage solutions."
