Cedar Rapids-based Involta is now ark data centers, the company announced Wednesday. The rebrand of the national provider of data center, cloud and connectivity infrastructure and services is in response to the demand for edge data centers and cloud infrastructure brought on by the recent surge in artificial intelligence. According to a news release, ark will continue to address the need for scalable infrastructure by investing in and expanding its existing locations to support enterprise and hyperscale edge capacity needed for data center, cloud and network interconnection. “The decision to relaunch as ark was driven by the insatiable growth of infrastructure requirements for space, power and compute options,” ark data centers CEO Brett Lindsey said in a prepared statement. Ark’s growth plan includes several new projects in emerging edge markets, the release said.
