As CEO and Owner of Atomic Data, Jim Wolford is responsible for providing the leadership necessary to position Atomic at the forefront of the industry. Jim began Atomic as a consumer product, providing IT solutions applicable to the masses. As the data center industry evolved and client needs outgrew consumer solutions, Jim realized that a more boutique methodology was needed. Because no two clients’ have identical business needs, recommended solutions shouldn’t come in a box. It was Jim’s insight that transformed Atomic Data into multi-location, managed service data center that it is today. As Cloud Computing comes to age, this paradigm shift has been further escalated.
Atomic has data center locations in Minneapolis MN, Edina MN, Mankato MN, Phoenix AZ, Atlanta GA, Hong Kong P.R.C., and Madrid Spain. Atomic provides a wide range of managed IT services that include the following: Internet Connectivity, Workstation & Server Back-up, Virtual Servers, Level I-III Enterprise Engineering, Enterprise Storage, Web Hosting, Network Monitoring, VOIP Solution, Managed & Shared Microsoft Exchange Solutions and Hosted Microsoft SharePoint Solutions. Jim makes it his personal and company goal to help business owners take total control of their IT infrastructure/data & properly use it to achieve their goals & objectives.
