• DRS is now Involta.

DRS Acquisition

In June 2015, substantially all of the assets of Data Recovery Services, LLC (DRS) were acquired by Involta, LLC, a national leader in cloud, managed IT and data center services.

Service to current DRS clients will remain intact and without disruption.

With minimal overlap in service offerings and territory, the agreement leveraged the capacities and strengths of both companies to better serve mid-market and enterprise-class clients.

Acquired assets include more than 5,500 fiber route miles in Ohio and western Pennsylvania, two Youngstown-based data centers owned and operated by DRS, an operations management agreement for the WēConnect Community Data Center near Columbus, and data center space in Pittsburgh.

With the asset agreement, Involta nearly doubled in size, with more than half of the approximately 200 employees residing in Ohio. The addition of DRS’ sizeable technical team offers Involta unparalleled depth of expertise and capacity.

DRS clients now benefit from additional facilities, including connectivity to Involta’s enterprise data center in Akron, while Involta and its clients will benefit from enhanced territory reach and technical services capabilities.

For details, read the acquisition press release.
