Demand for Colocation and Dedicated Servers Continues to be Strong Despite Lean Times for Small Businesses

EMERYVILLE, Calif., Oct. 28, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Evocative, Inc., a San Francisco Bay Area-based data center and collocation provider, today announced that it has been ranked #43 on the San Francisco Business Times list of the East Bay's fastest-growing private companies.

"Where most colocation providers are fairly hands-off, we like to be much more involved with our customers. Our ability and enthusiasm for understanding their problems and working with them to find creative answers has ended up being a major asset of the business," says Patrick Rigney, Evocative's CEO and CTO. "Particularly when a lot of businesses are looking for ways to get more from their relationships, without a lot of extra expense, having a vendor with our capabilities is in many cases a strategic advantage. We're proud of that, and it's also a heck of a lot of fun. We get to see and do a lot of things that our competitors simply would ignore or be unaware of. That extra mile has gone a long way toward fueling our growth."

"We're honored to be counted among such a great cross-section of businesses," says Rigney. "The East Bay Fast 45 and San Francisco Fast 100 this year have a great variety of small businesses that are growing, hiring, and being engines of the recovery. We salute all of the honorees for their achievements and wish them all much continued success! And we're especially grateful to the San Francisco Business Times and its Publisher, Mary Huss, for making sure that the successes of a lot of hard-working people are recognized, because as one honoree said at the awards banquet last night, sometimes you just don't look up to see how far you've come."
