Many companies in Oregon’s I-5 corridor are beginning to recognize that the BendBroadband Vault is the first in-state option for organizations seeking geo-distant colocation and disaster recovery services.
Our Data Center Services Sales Manager at the Vault attended two events over the past month, where he helped grow awareness of the Vault’s services and close proximity, yet safe distance, from the Northwest’s metropolitan areas.
On April 30th, the Vault team was in Salem at the Annual Spring Conference for the Health Information and Management Systems Society. Approximately 200 healthcare professionals attended the event from organizations like Providence, PeaceHealth, Legacy, OCHIN and St. Charles Health Systems.
Security is of upmost importance to healthcare organizations, and many attendees met with the Vault team to discuss topics relevant to Health Information Exchange and Coordinated Care and Collaboration.
One healthcare plan administrator from Salem spoke with the Vault about his desire for a disaster recovery site and had not considered an in-state option until he learned of the Vault.
Alternatively, several hospital organizations revealed backup strategies that include in-region backup and hosting services, but did not include an out of region component. This is where the team at the BendBroadband Vault can add value and make a good backup strategy even better.
A few weeks after the HiMSS Conference, May 17-18, the Vault exhibited at the Oregon chapter of the American Health Information Management Association (OrHIMA) annual convention in Portland.
The Vault team met healthcare professionals from around the region, who travelled from places like Great Falls, Montana and Astoria, Oregon.
The Vault has several other exhibits planned next month. We will be at the Interface 2012 Conference near Medford, Oregon June 8, and then traveling up to Seattle, Washington on June 18 for the VMware User Group Conference.
