Globix Unveils Right-MoveSM Promotion to Help Stranded Customers Transition to a Globix Data Center
NEW YORK – June 12, 2003New York – June 12, 2003 – Globix Corporation (GBXX:OTC) – Globix Corporation today announced a unique program aimed at easing the transition of customers’ equipment from their distressed hosting providers to a Globix Data Center of their choice. The new Right-MoveSM program provides customers with a solution aimed at turning a crisis into an opportunity, including:
“Our industry is seeing a lot of knee-jerk reactions to recent announcements,” said Pete Stevenson, Globix’s CEO. “Anytime you have to move Data Centers, especially for events beyond your control, it presents a difficult set of challenges. But there is also a silver lining in this. Customers should be able use it as an opportunity to move to a stable environment, and to upgrade their technology and implement security in ways they might not have done otherwise. Globix is providing that opportunity so that stranded customers can make not just any move, but the right move.”
The Right-MoveSM program is built upon the Globix RapidDeploySM platform – a transitional hosting environment in Globix’s Data Centers on which customer’s host their web site while their equipment is moved to permanent Globix solution- ensuring important continuity of services. RapidDeploySM includes dedicated web servers and software, network bandwidth, firewalls and load balancing equipment to ensure the customers have the best security and performance during their transition. In addition Globix provides project management, logistics and arranges the move. Globix is also offering several technology “refresh” options for customers seeking to use the move as an opportunity to upgrade their infrastructure while minimizing capital outlay. And once the entire infrastructure is in place in a new Globix Data Center, customers will receive a complimentary vulnerability assessment so that they know that their implementation is secure.
“Globix’s network reach, strong balance sheet, transitional platform and logistical support, provide customers the peace-of-mind they seek in a stable hosting partner,” said Pete Stevenson, ”And now with the Right-MoveSM program, customers have the opportunity to turn a difficult move into one where requirements for uptime, service continuity and security are fully met.”
To give customers immediate access to the Globix solution, the company is holding two “open houses” at its Data Centers in New York City and Santa Clara, CA on June 24, 2003 and June 25, 2003 respectively. Globix will open its doors and allow prospective customers to see for themselves the solid capabilities Globix provides.
