|Fate||Chapter 11 bankruptcy; purchased by Cable & Wireless|
Exodus Communications was an Internet hosting service and Internet service provider to dot-com businesses. It went broke, along with many of its customers, during the bursting of the dot-com bubble. It declared Chapter 11 bankruptcy in 2001 and was purchased by Cable and Wireless.
Exodus acquired American Information Systems, Cohesive, Arca Systems, and Network-1's professional services division. In December 1999, Exodus acquired Global Online Japan  and opened its Tokyo IDC in April 2000.
In January 2003, Cable and Wireless Japan sold Global Online Japan to Japanese VoIP operator Fusion Communications, merging its existing consumer Internet and VoIP efforts to create Fusion Network Services. The Fusion group was later acquired by Rakuten Group, where the Global Online Japan and Fusion brands continue to exist.
