Get to know Genesis Adaptive

Our Story

The start of Genesis Adaptive

Genesis Adaptive was founded in 2009 when our co-founders set out to leverage their technical experience to help small businesses. After spending years working for various technology consulting firms, it became apparent that there were issues with how consulting companies viewed their customers and the technology. Our goal was to present thoughtful, customer-focused solutions that weren't just focused on the bottom line. Our humble beginnings involved years of getting to know every customer in a way that no other consulting, hosting, or infrastructure organization could. We leveraged our expertise to deliver world-class solutions that solved key business problems through a significant investment in each of our customers, in both time and technology. Along the way, we built a loyal customer base that would act as a stepping stone to help us achieve our goal.

In 2012, we entered the cloud hosting market by acquiring one of our partners. The cloud and its associated technologies have been heavily utilized by growing businesses since its inception. Out offerings evolved to include the same level of personal attention in this new market. With facilities in Chicago, Los Angeles, and Miami, our unique data center footprint provided us with a solid ground to launch services such as Veeam Cloud Connect, Disaster Recovery as a Service, IP Transit (Dedicated Internet), and managed storage solutions, as well as existing ones such as bare metal servers, managed hosting, and solutions consulting. Since the acquisition, we've continued to experience significant growth from both new and existing customers. This has allowed us to build additional complex hosting solutions that take advantage of our expanding datacenter footprint. In late 2017, we brought on yet another new facility in Atlanta to fuel our surging cloud growth.

Genesis Adaptive continues to offer customers cutting-edge technology combined with exceptional value through our Hosting and Consulting organizations. Join us for the next chapter of our story.
