               CONCENTRIC HOST SERVER SOLUTIONS SERVICE AGREEMENT

This Concentric Host Server Solutions Service Agreement ("Agreement") is made
and entered into on this 29th day of January, 1999 ("Effective Date"), by and
between Concentric Network Corporation, Inc., a Delaware corporation
("Concentric"), and Corio Corporation ("Customer"), a Delaware corporation with
its principal place of business at 700 Bay Road, Suite 210, Redwood City, CA
94063.

The Parties hereto agree as follows:

1.0     SERVICES

Subject to the terms and conditions of this Agreement, during the term of this
Agreement, Concentric will provide to Customer the goods and services
(collectively, the "Services") as described and selected in the applicable
Co-location Order Form(s), and/or the Managed Server Order Form(s) (each an
"Order Form") attached hereto as Exhibit A.

2.0     PAYMENT AND INVOICES

2.1     Fees. Customer shall pay Concentric all fees indicated on the applicable
Order Form. These fees and charges may include a one-time set-up charge, as well
as certain monthly fees. During the term of this Agreement the fees shall be
fixed; however, should Concentric's general fees for the Services decrease
during the term, Customer's fees will be adjusted accordingly.

2.2     Payment Terms. Concentric shall invoice Customer monthly, at the end of
each month, for the fees payable under this Agreement pursuant to the applicable
Order Form, and Customer shall pay Concentric such fees no later than thirty
(30) days after the invoice date. If Concentric does not receive payment in full
for each invoice within thirty (30) days after the invoice date, Concentric may
add to Customer's account a late charge of 1.5% per month, or the maximum amount
allowed by law, whichever is less.

2.3     Taxes. All fees are in United States dollars and exclude any applicable
taxes. Customer shall pay, indemnify and hold Concentric harmless from all
sales, use, value added or other taxes of any nature, other than taxes on
Concentric's net income, including penalties and interest, and all government
permit or license fees assessed upon or with respect to any fees due under this
Agreement (except to the extent Customer provides Concentric with a valid tax
exemption certificate). If any applicable foreign law requires Customer to
withhold amounts from any payments to Concentric hereunder: (a) Customer shall
affect such withholding, remit such amounts to the appropriate taxing
authorities and promptly furnish Concentric with tax receipts evidencing the
payments of such amounts; and (b) the sum payable by Customer upon which the
deduction or withholding is based shall be increased to the extent necessary to
ensure that, after such deduction or withholding, Concentric receives and
retains, free from liability for such deduction or withholding, a net amount
equal to the amount Concentric would have received and retained in the absence
of such required deduction or withholding.

3.0     REPRESENTATIONS AND WARRANTIES

3.1     General. Each party represents and warrants that it has the right and
authority to enter into this Agreement, and that by entering into this

its property is or may become subject or bound. Each party shall, at its own
expense, make, obtain, and maintain in force at all times during the term of
this Agreement, all applicable filings, registrations, reports, licenses,
permits and authorizations necessary to perform its obligations under this
Agreement.

approval or authorization of or designation, declaration or filing with any

confidential nature of the Confidential Information against the third party
seeking disclosure and (b) cooperate fully with the disclosing party in
protecting against any such disclosure and/or obtaining a protective order
narrowing the scope of such disclosure and/or use of the Confidential
Information. In the event that such protection against disclosure is not
obtained, the receiving party will be entitled to disclose the Confidential
Information, but only as, and to the extent, necessary to legally comply with
such compelled disclosure.

5.2     Nondisclosure. Until the later of three (3) years from the Effective
Date, or the expiration of the then current term as set forth on the Order From,
each party agrees to maintain all Confidential Information in confidence to the
same extent that it protects its own similar Confidential Information, but in no
event less than reasonable care, and to use such Confidential Information only
as permitted under this Agreement; in addition, with respect to the Confidential
Information of the Third-Party Software Licensor, Customer agrees that it shall
not use or disclose such information at any time either during the Term or after
the termination of this Agreement, except as required by law. Each party agrees
to take all reasonable precautions to prevent any unauthorized disclosure or use
of Confidential Information including, without limitation disclosing
Confidential Information only to its employees: (a) with a need to know to
further permitted uses of such information: (b) who are parties to appropriate
agreements sufficient to comply with this Section 5; and (c) who are informed of
the nondisclosure/non-use obligations imposed by this Section 5; and both
parties shall take appropriate steps to implement and enforce such
non-disclosure/non-use obligations.

5.3     Terms of Agreement Confidential. Subject to Section 7.1, each of the
parties agrees not to disclose to any third party the terms of this Agreement
without the prior written consent of the other party hereto, except to advisors,
investors and others on a need-to-know basis under circumstances that reasonably
ensure the confidentiality thereof, or to the extent required by law.

5.4     Injunctive Relief. In the event of an actual or threatened breach of the
above confidentiality provisions, the nonbreaching party will have no adequate
remedy at law and will

ServerSolutions092298            Confidential                        Page 2 of 5



   3

without the necessity of showing actual money damages.

6.1     Term. The term of this Agreement will commence on the Effective Date and
continue for the term for five (5) years. Upon written notice thirty (30) days
or more prior to the expiration of the initial term, Customer will indicate
whether to extend the term for an additional five (5) years or such term as
Customer may request, or let the Agreement expire. Absent written notice by
either party thirty (30) days prior to the end of the initial term, this
Agreement will automatically renew for successive one (1) year terms under the
prices then in effect for the Services.

6.2     Termination. A party may terminate this Agreement upon written notice to

months.

6.3     Effect of Termination.

(a)     If Customer terminates this Agreement for its convenience prior to the
expiration of the initial term or any renewal term, Customer will be liable for
and pay Concentric the difference between the fees paid and calculated at the
discount level corresponding to the term elected by Customer and the fees paid
and calculated at the discount level earned.

(b)     Customer shall comply with all applicable procedures related to
equipment removal upon termination. The obligations of Sections 3, 4, 5, 6.3 and
9 will survive any expiration or earlier termination of this Agreement. In the

foregoing, Customer may publish and disseminate summaries of the data output
performed and transmitted by the Third-Party Software provided that Customer
attributes the applicable Licensor as the source of the data output or
information on which such summaries are based.

vi.     CUSTOMER HEREBY ACCEPTS THE SOFTWARE AND DATA "AS IS" WITH NO EXPRESS OR
IMPLIED WARRANTIES OR CONDITIONS OF ANY KIND, INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION,

Agreement.

9.6     Force Majeure. Either party will be excused from any delay or failure to

but not limited to, acts of God, earthquake, labor disputes and strikes, riots
or war. The obligations and rights of the party so excused shall be extended on
a day-to-day basis for the period of time equal to that of the underlying cause
