Evolve IP: Unifying Organizations with One Cloud

Tim Allen, CSO
The Cloud now permeates entire organizations. Marketing groups are accessing Dropbox on iPads with virtual desktops. Customer service teams have remote agents working from home using cloud-based call centers. IT groups have virtualized their data centers and moved to Disaster Recovery as a Service (DRaaS).

Until recently however the technology pros that are managing this rapidly growing environment have needed to source multiple cloud service providers (CSP) for their unique business requirements or attempted to blend in-house and out-of-house solutions. This is where Evolve IP, an Inc.500 company which started providing its services in 2007, outshines other cloud providers.

Headquartered in Wayne, PA, their awardwinning Evolve IP OneCloudTM platform provides a unique architecture that unifies the cloud for their more than 1,000 enterprise and midsized customers. Designed from the beginning to provide organizations with a unified option for cloud services, Evolve IP enables decision-makers to migrate all or select IT technologies to its award-winning cloud platform. Primarily focusing on Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) Evolve IP provides cloud services that improve productivity while lowering a company’s total cost of ownership.
