IT-LifeLine Inc., a small data backup and recovery company here, plans to move its office and data center into larger quarters at the Liberty Lake Internet Portal building, in Liberty Lake.
Steven Tabacek, president of IT-LifeLine, says the company has leased 3,500 square feet of floor space in the heavily wired building, which is located at 23403 E. Mission and was developed by Spokane high-tech entrepreneur Bernard Daines. The company plans to use about 2,500 square feet of that space for its offices and the remainder for its data center.
Minor tenant improvements currently are under way, and IT-LifeLine plans to move later this month into its new space from its current 600-square-foot location in Steam Plant Square, in downtown Spokane, Tabacek says.
The move is a reaction to growing business, Tabacek says. We cant fulfill all our current customer needs right now.
The Liberty Lake Internet Portal also is home to Liberty Lake Internet Exchange LLC, a full-service data center that offers high-speed Internet, Web-site hosting, and other services. Tabacek says that company, which Daines formed, and IT-LifeLine offer services that complement each others and share the same target marketbusiness customers here and in the Seattle area. They might informally partner in offering services to clients.
Chris Walter, Liberty Lake Internet Exchanges sales manager, says, We both can benefit from each others expertise.
IT-LifeLines new offices will include disaster-recovery suites that customers will be able to use while retrieving data and reestablishing operations in case of a catastrophic event, or more likely, to simulate such an occurrence.
IT-LifeLine, started last June, currently employs three people, and is considering adding a few more employees later this year.
