Evocative’s portfolio increases to 20 operating data center colocation facilities and 60+ global Points of Presence with the facilities acquired from INAP. Apart from the data center asset acquisition, Evocative will also welcome several INAP employees associated with the INAP data center business to the Evocative team.
