Involta has always focused on developing managed services that support very specific enterprise customers – healthcare, financial services and manufacturing – particularly because those sectors serve a highly regulated industry. The company’s growth plan includes a strategic targeting of anchor tenants in those industries, in both existing and new markets.
Those insights were part of a report featuring Involta by 451 Research. The report showcased Involta’s history from its inception as a company to support the IT needs of enterprises to its current focus today that includes more than half of its business coming from the managed services side.
Another tactical move by the company is to focus on secondary, often underserved, markets – where customers focus on the value of colocation, cloud and managed services. Involta is working to educate the marketplace, which is already seeing a shift to off-premise, cloud-based workloads.
“At Involta, we are increasing our critical power and infrastructure investments to stay in front of client demand in key markets,” said Bruce Lehrman, CEO, Involta. “You will continue to see Involta expand with new and improved offerings around Edge, enhanced security and hybrid cloud as we strive to partner with our customers to support next-gen business models.”
Most recently, the company expanded in two of its markets, Pittsburgh, and Cleveland. The expansions were spurred by two anchor tenants in both locations. An uptick in demand in healthcare with anchor tenant MetroHealth was the key factor in adding new space at Involta’s Cleveland data center.
In Pittsburgh, the expansion was motivated by a global high-tech company that was looking to leverage a world-class data center for increased capabilities and reliability.
