Giveaways are on tap Thursday from 1 to 8:30 p.m. during the grand opening of NetRiver‘s colocation center in a former REI store.
The company started started providing Web hosting from a house in Spokane in 1999, then expanded into the basement of the historic Davenport Hotel.
Last year NetRiver moved into the REI space, which was available since the store had relocated to Alderwood Mall. It has 330 racks and plans to add 250 more, in addition to the 60 it still operates below the Spokane hotel.
Among the new site’s selling points: The added security of being across the street from the Lynnwood Police Department.
