Internet Service Provider Signs Lease for Internet Data Center in “Silicon Valley”

NEW YORK, NEW YORK, August 6, 1998 – Globix Corporation (Nasdaq: GBIX) a leading provider of total Internet-based solutions for businesses, has signed a 15 year lease for a building now under construction in the heart of “Silicon Valley”, Santa Clara, California. Completion is slated for December 1998. The building has been designed to Globix specifications, with engineering that includes custom electrical specifications, atmospheric controls and enhanced security systems. It comprises 60,000 square feet on two floors, with one floor housing the new West Coast SuperPOP data center and the other providing space for sales and administrative personnel.

In addition to the specialized hardware for Dedicated Access to the Internet, the new SuperPOP will include ample secure space to house servers, racks and cages for Web Hosting and Co-location customers. Moreover, it will provide disaster-recovery flexibility and site-mirroring capabilities for the ever-growing number of companies that are finding the World Wide Web to be a vital business tool. Like the New York SuperPOP, the Santa Clara SuperPOP will offer the latest systems and network management facilities, as well as 24 x 7 monitoring. The new data center will allow West Coast companies to use Globix to help them leverage the Web as an irreplaceable marketing tool for attracting and maintaining customers and to put the Internet to use to facilitate corporate communications and for other mission-critical applications.

The signing of the lease and the construction of the building mark the beginning of a planned major expansion for Globix. Because of the rapidly growing Internet needs of businesses in the area, Globix is establishing a strategically important West Coast presence with the installation of the state-of-the-art SuperPOP. “We selected Santa Clara because of the concentration of high-tech companies with tremendous demand for the comprehensive array of services that Globix provides. Globix has a complete range of Internet services and the expertise to put them to work for these technology-savvy companies,” said Globix President and CEO, Marc H. Bell.

“Silicon Valley companies need the extraordinary availability, reliability and redundancy that have been a hallmark of Globix in New York,” continued Bell. “Globix has already become a premier Internet Service Provider for businesses in New York City. Now, the addition of the West Coast SuperPOP will greatly expand our reach. This is another in a series of planned steps which continue to position Globix as a major force in the Internet industry.”
