Los Angeles, CA, August 16, 2023 - Evocative, a global provider of Internet infrastructure, is ranked 2296 on Inc. Magazine's annual Inc. 5000 list. The Inc. 5000 list recognizes the 5000 fastest-growing private companies in the United States.
Evocative’s inclusion on the Inc. 5000 list marks its place as a leading digital infrastructure provider. Evocative provides enterprise-class data center, bare metal, network, cloud, and managed services solutions with a global footprint including 20 interconnected data centers and 60+ Points of Presence supporting over 68,000 servers across strategically located metropolitan areas in three continents. Prior to the company’s brand consolidation last year, Evocative’s former iteration, VPLS, ranked number 2066 on last year’s 2022 Inc. 5000.
“We are honored to again be recognized among the fastest growing private companies in the US,” said Derek Garnier, CEO at Evocative. "I am privileged to lead a dedicated team who consistently demonstrate their capabilities and expertise. We’ve achieved strong growth this year through an expanded data center presence and product suite and this enables us to better serve our customers.”
Evocative’s strategy over the last year resulted in a successful rebrand launch and strategic alignment of its product portfolio. Evocative also acquired 9 INAP data centers and related assets in a major asset acquisition which bolstered Evocative’s data center footprint and increased its employee count by 30 percent. Garnier’s appointment as CEO in early 2023 fortified its experienced executive leadership team to orient the company through this period of tremendous growth.
Evocative is also ranked as number 109 on Inc. Magazine’s list of The Pacific’s Fastest-Growing Private Companies.
