Storage Virtualization & Data On Demand Provider, Evolving Solutions, Celebrates 10 Years of Success - Explains How The IT Storage Industry Has Evolved

Data on Demand and Storage Virtualization solutions provider, Evolving Solutions, reflects on 10 years of business success and the growth of its company in tandem with the ever-changing IT storage landscape.

Minneapolis, MN, December 14, 2006 – Evolving Solutions, an IT storage architect providing data on demand, storage virtualization and disaster recovery solutions, is celebrating its tenth anniversary.

Evolving Solutions offers IT storage architecture services and solutions to help businesses optimize their storage environment for better efficiency and a greater total cost of ownership. As Evolving Solutions has grown in the last ten years, co-founders Jaime Gmach and Rebecca Olson have watched the IT storage industry also evolve.

“It’s amazing to reflect on how much we have achieved in the last 10 years,” said Jaime Gmach, President and CEO. “We have grown Evolving Solutions from a husband and wife duo into a $60 Million company with 49 employees. Not only has Evolving Solutions been consistently named one of the fastest growing companies in the Twin Cities, but we have also been recognized as a rapidly growing storage company on a national level.”

At their inception in 1996, Evolving Solutions had many requests for RS6000 hardware and peripherals. Evolving Solutions differentiated itself by providing technical support which today still remains one of its main differentiators. Over the past few years, the IT storage industry has started to focus more and more on storage and server virtualization technology and the related benefits, including greater total cost of ownership and a positive impact on a company’s bottom-line.

Server and storage virtualization solutions are a step towards autonomic computing, which is Evolving Solutions’ ultimate goal – to be able to offer customers effortless data on-demand.

From their humble beginnings in an old warehouse with 2 computers and 2 phones, to their present day 25,000 square foot warehouse and office facility in Hamel, MN, Evolving Solutions is focused on continuing to grow at a whirlwind pace. By evolving their business in response to industry needs, Evolving Solutions has increased its revenue year over year.

“The IT storage industry has grown by leaps and bounds in the last ten years,” said Rebecca Olson, Vice President, Evolving Solutions. “We are dedicated to being on the cutting edge of technology development so as to give our customers the best service possible.”
