ROSEBURG, OR — RIO Networks, a division of the Umpqua Indian Development Corporation, is creating a state of the art high density data center/colocation facility. The project will take advantage of the next generation of data center technology and is expected to be completed in 2012.
Colocation centers are being used by companies both big and small to virtualize their servers, leverage cloud based solutions and save money. By letting RIO Networks take over this task, businesses will not have to spend on maintaining their equipment or having expensive IT staff on hand all the time. Customers will experience less down time in this high density framework. Also, businesses that collocate will not have to worry about hiring their own security.
The facility will be built in Roseburg, OR and will be partially funded by a 2.7 million grant from the U.S. Department of Commerce. The data center will also house an incubator for high tech startup companies. This, in turn, will attract more companies to the area and fuel the local economy in Roseburg. This proven model has resulted in many successful startup companies in Silicon Valley.
The high tech facility will be built on what used to be a feed center for cattle. The power will be supplied by Bonneville Power Administration. An additional 3 Mega Watts of power will be used. The data center will be as energy efficient as currently able and will feature next generation cooling technology.
The enemy of the data center is heat. The more powerful servers you run they more heat they generate. Finding the right cooling solution is necessary to run the center as efficiently as possible.
RIO Networks decided to partner with the Rittal Corporation to take advantage of their data center expertise. The data center will use their LCP+ product line to provide liquid cooled solutions directly to the individual enclosures. This will minimize their energy consumption, cooling costs and be a “greener” solution.
Local and national businesses will use the data center to take advantage of all the benefits from the next generation of cloud based servers.
Rio Networks is an Oregon-based, locally owned and operated CLEC specializing in next generation business voice and data services. Since 1994, its facilities-based footprint has grown to serve most of the major Oregon markets including Portland, Salem-Eugene, Roseburg, Grants Pass, Medford and Bend.
