Evocative, an internet infrastructure provider, intends to buy nine data centers across the United States from INAP. This acquisition will bring added colocation and related network services to Evocative’s existing portfolio.
Located in Boston, New Jersey, Atlanta, Dallas, Los Angeles, Seattle and Silicon Valley, this acquisition will increase the company’s existing portfolio to twenty colocation facilities and over sixty points of presence. Many INAP employees will join the Evocative team, growing the company by 30 percent.
“We are excited to share the strength of Evocative’s digital infrastructure capabilities with our clients,” said Arman Khalili, founder and CEO of Evocative. “We know the importance of enterprise digital enablement. We built a company that offers a comprehensive suite of solutions from the physical foundation up the stack to enable the delivery of highly secure, hosted data services.”
In addition to data center services, Evocative offers bare metal solutions with customizable, high-performance computing and storage environments to its customers worldwide. With the addition of these nine INAP data center facilities, the company may now provide bare metal solutions to more regions in the United States.
Evocative says its bare metal servers provide:
- Quick deployment on a dependable network.
- Complete hardware control through configuration capabilities.
- Security features such as security maintenance run by Evocative staff.
The company provides bare metal solutions in Europe (Paris and Frankfurt), Asia (Dubai, Japan and Singapore) and other locations in the United States. Evocative claims that it offers a secure, scalable and high-performance environment with dedicated servers. Its sister company, Krypt, provides bare metal servers with complete visibility through “My.Krypt” for easy configuration and automated alert monitoring. Krypt’s bare metal services offer remote access capability through the company’s secure out-of-band SSL VPN network.

It will deliver 108MW of power with the potential to grow by 25 percent. Following a typical closing procedure, acquiring INAP data centers is anticipated to close in Q3 2022.
