EMERYVILLE, Calif., Oct. 3 /PRNewswire/ — Evocative, Inc., a San Francisco Bay Area-based colocation and managed services provider, has been named one of America's fastest growing private companies in 2008 by Inc. Magazine.

Evocative, Inc. ranks as number 1,955 on the Inc. 5,000 list, which measures companies by revenue growth from 2004 to 2007. The list is the most comprehensive look at the most important segment of the economy — America's independent-minded entrepreneurs. Taken as a whole, these companies represent the backbone of the U.S. economy.

Evocative's growth rate also ranked at 81st on Inc.'s list of the Top 100 Fastest Growing Companies by Region for the San Francisco Bay Area.

Evocative's rapid 190-percent revenue growth over the period demonstrates the national and local market demand for solutions that help businesses control the costs and performance of its infrastructure to protect its business services from downtime. Evocative's colocation and managed services products address these needs for any business using the Internet as part of its mission-critical transactions, services, or communications. The growth also reflects the increasing density and power demands of servers, which collectively often exceed the power and cooling capabilities of in-office computer rooms and wiring closets. Moving these critical systems to Evocative gives its customers the benefits of very high density computing with the "always on" redundancy in power, cooling, and high-speed network connectivity.

With only about half of its data center capacity sold, Evocative sees a bright future for continued growth. The capacity not only allows for continued customer acquisition in colocation, but for enormous growth in its managed services business.

"We expect our growth to continue at similar rates into the foreseeable future," says Patrick Rigney, Evocative's CEO and CTO. "Pressure for reductions in IT capital spending on our customers is a constant, but it's been somewhat relieved by the downward trend in costs of hardware. But, as the hardware price/performance curve flattens and yet pressure to reduce capital costs continues, virtualization technologies and server consolidation will continue to build momentum — it's just getting traction at the enterprise level today. We offer virtualized servers as part of our managed suite of services, and we have huge capacity for growth in this product line. In an environment like ours, this can drive revenue per customer down, but the economies of scale and collateral increases in customer capacity and demand are so great that the total revenue opportunity is far larger than what we've done in these last three years."
