The evolution of Involta began with the founding Technology Resources Company (TRC) in 1998. CoVault Technology was founded in early 2006 in Cedar Rapids, Iowa. Involta was formed in 2007 through the merger of Technology Resources Company and CoVault Technology, LLC. The combination of CoVault, the only colocation data center company in the Cedar Rapids/Iowa City corridor, with the data management expertise of TRC created a company that could both house and provide support for clients’ increasingly critical data infrastructure.
The combined companies provided both the physical facilities and technical expertise necessary to secure data and provide disaster recovery services for businesses’ critical data infrastructure.
Involta continues to expand. In 2015, the company acquired substantially all of the assets of Data Recovery Services, LLC (DRS), a managed-services and IT consulting firm operating in Ohio and Pennsylvania. Acquired assets included more than 6,500 fiber route miles in Ohio and western Pennsylvania, and two Youngstown-based data centers owned and operated by DRS. Other acquisitions include Kadium, in 2018, which expanded the Involta Hybrid Cloud technology, managed services, and cloud consulting services. BluPraire, also acquired in 2018, helps organizations leverage new technology to enable business outcomes. Involta is now offering a full suite of cloud services, from ideation and strategic planning to enterprise and solution architecture, as well as consulting services for business process improvement and organizational change management.
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 clients with world-class IT infrastructure and intelligence.
