NEW YORK – June 27, 2001
NEW YORK – June 27, 2001 – Globix Corporation (NASDAQ: GBIX) today announced that it had opened its two newest state-of-the art data centers in New York City and London in response to continued demand for its complete suite of complex hosting, network and applications services in city-center locations.
Like the other Globix Internet Data Centers, the new facilities have dual connections to their area’s power grid, redundant uninterruptible power supply (UPS) systems and back-up generators, 24 x 7 x 365 on-site monitoring and technical staffing, advanced biometric security, and redundant temperature-control and fire-suppression systems. The two new centers combined add nearly 400,000 gross square feet of premium space, and are connected to the Globix high-speed global backbone network.
The New York Internet Data Center is located at 415 Greenwich Street in the Tribeca district, and the London Data Center in the heart of the financial district at 55-71 City Road in the former Companies House. These city-center locations were selected for their convenience to corporate customers and as leading hubs of global corporate trade and commerce.

Bell, chairman and CEO of Globix. ‘Designed to meet the needs of companies looking for ways to cut costs and increase performance, our data centers provide the facilities platform for secure, scaleable, and managed Internet infrastructure solutions for business.
