In 1998, when the founders of Adar IT were pioneers in cloud-based IT technology for small and mid-size businesses, it was a luxury only Fortune 500-level companies could afford. That’s when we decided to level the playing field. Today, we are a single-source provider that can manage all your hardware, software, servers, hosting and support, so you can focus on what really matters—running your business.
Unlike industry newcomers, our principals have transitioned thousands of users from in-house systems to the cloud. Working together for seven years at Solus, LLC—a leading Chicago-based provider of IT consulting services—they saw that many businesses upgraded IT equipment every few years and struggled with ongoing maintenance. Each upgrade required a significant upfront investment, and often disrupted operations.
During our early years, we developed strong competencies in data center operations, virtualization technologies such as VMware, and storage technologies such as NetApp. Next, we developed a way to deliver all IT infrastructure services (servers, desktops, backup, software and support) via an Internet-based, secure private network.
In 2007, we deployed our “private cloud.” This highly redundant operation spans multiple geographic locations and is scalable and flexible. Initially serving companies in the Chicago area, we now partner with businesses in diverse industries across the U.S. With our depth of knowledge and experience, we deliver a seamless, reliable, secure, cost-effective IT solution, with an unusually strong commitment to service. As a result, we empower our clients with improved productivity, data security, workplace flexibility and financial savings that improve business performance.
