Roseburg, OR (PRWEB) May 09, 2012
Rio Networks, a locally owned and operated Managed Service Provider (MSP) in Oregon, is nearing completion of their 12,500 square foot data center and colocation facility in Roseburg, OR. Scheduled to open its doors in October 2012, the data center is part of a bigger initiative to support high tech startup companies in Oregon by providing cloud based infrastructure and a business incubator within the same facility. The 12,500 square foot business incubator, the Umpqua Business Center, will be located on the second floor of the data center, offering a unique blend of office space, business collaboration and technology infrastructure all under one roof.
Rio Networks will occupy a portion of the Umpqua Business Center and offer tenants managed cloud services including tier one, two and three IT services, voice, data, web, SaaS applications, end point security and network monitoring. Mark Bilton-Smith, President of Rio Networks, points out, “Businesses located in the Umpqua Business Center who take advantage of Rio’s managed services will be able to focus their time and financial resources on developing the core value of their business rather than managing their technology”. Special financing will allow tenants to forego the upfront capital investment commonly required to start-up a technology business. “This is truly a game-changing concept for Oregon start-up companies coming to the business incubator.” Continues Mark Bilton-Smith, “In a time when small business financing is difficult to receive, we are proud to offer a world-class facility and technology infrastructure that creates a competitive advantage for otherwise under-capitalized businesses.”
Located below the Umpqua Business Center is the data center, a state of the art carrier neutral facility offering high density rack space and colocation services. Special considerations were taken for the location of the data center which resides in Roseburg, Oregon on sovereign ground owned by The Cow Creek Band of Umpqua Tribe of Indians. The location not only provides sovereign immunity and legal protection but also the benefits of being in a HUBZone (Historically Underprivileged Business Zone). “We chose the location for the many benefits The Cow Creek Tribe can provide but also the low risk of natural disasters, such as earthquakes”, states Bilton-Smith. “Sitting between the two major cities of Portland and Medford offers close proximity to major business centers without the common threats.”
