About the business:
Atomic Data offers customers a whole slew of IT services, including an asset that's becoming increasingly important for companies: digital storage space. As businesses amass more and more digital information, Atomic Data helps its customers migrate content to the cloud.
The company also manages data storage centers all over the world: two are in the company's hometown of Minneapolis, but others are as far away as Madrid and Hong Kong. Atomic Data tries to distinguish itself as a more ethical IT company -- for example, CEO Jim Wolford traveled to Uganda this past April to try to figure out how to improve communication technologies at African refugee camps.
