Colocation and data center operators which serve enterprise clients often must grow to keep up with the evolving demands of the digital infrastructure space. The rapidly growing business environment creates increasingly stringent requirements for space and power across many markets nationwide. Intelligent growth initiatives, such as acquiring complementary assets, creates an organic method to meet current and future demands of clientele. Evocative, a global internet infrastructure and colocation provider, continues its strategic growth with the close of its latest asset acquisition to expand its market reach and meet the demands of enterprise customers.
Evocative has officially closed on its asset acquisition of the majority of INAP’s data centers with related services and network infrastructure, underscoring Evocative’s focus on strategic growth initiatives. The INAP asset acquisition adds a total of nine data centers to expand Evocative’s colocation footprint in its existing markets of Dallas, Los Angeles, New York, Phoenix, Silicon Valley, and Virginia while adding Atlanta, Boston, and Seattle to its robust portfolio.
