A long time ago (2005 actually), in a galaxy far, far away (well, Chicago)
The founders of Adar were running an IT consulting company for small businesses.
Most of their time was spent repairing broken and outdated servers, as well as backing up data that had been stored locally at each business – not the best use of IT consultant hours.

Then, a light bulb came on. To stop these client problems in their tracks, the team started providing online backup services. They would host all of a client’s data. Adar’s next thought was, “Exactly how much IT infrastructure should we look after - so our clients don’t have to?”
It turns out that every single client loved having someone else to look after all of their IT needs (of course), so the team decided to offer it as a full service to every new client.
Enter Adar IT. The team became experts in data center operations, virtualization technologies (such as VMware), and storage technologies (such as NetApp and Nimble). Then, they worked out a (really very clever) way to deliver all IT infrastructure services - servers, desktops, backup, software and support - via one internet-based, secure private network they would call the Adar PrivateCloud.
Adar IT officially deployed the PrivateCloud in 2007. Just like a real cloud, the size is flexible and can be made larger or smaller depending on how it will be used.
People were so crazy about PrivateCloud that the team could hardly keep up. Soon there were clients all over the world, and year-on-year profitable growth rates of 70% - and that was just the beginning, baby.
And whether it’s a super small company or a medium to large sized one, you get exactly the amount of IT you need - no more, no less, no problemo.

2016 was a big year, too.
We’ve significantly enhanced our offerings and rebranded Adar PrivateCloud as Nerdio. The innovations that made us special when we started out keep on expanding, and the clients we service grow with us.

We expect 2017 to bring the same level (if not more) of excitement and innovation. Stay tuned!

As our clients grow, we grow. We’re about to reach an entire petabyte of data transfer each month, and that number continues to grow rapidly. Clients just like you are trusting us with their IT environments. Why? Because we’re experts at keeping their operations running smoothly and their data safe and secure.

Our Philosophy

We believe in cutting-edge, bad*ss technology. So, no buggy software, no clunky interfaces, no learning curves, and no more headaches. Just effortless IT to make clients’ work lives a heck of a lot easier. Using the best of what’s out there, and architected with our own secret sauce added. We’re ready to rock when you are.

We’re tech nerds and geeks - and proud of it. We obsess over things like the latest in virtual desktops, Exchange servers, TLS 128-bit email encryption, how to integrate, and much more – basically how to always innovate and deliver awesome service for our clients. That’s just us.

While we’re a technology company, we also happen to have ridiculously good customer service behind us. We put ourselves in our customers’ shoes and push ourselves to treat them like we’d want to be treated. So there’s no talking to low-grade support resources, no endless waits to reach someone. We hate that and are pretty sure you do, too. Instead, we prefer to blow clients’ minds with support resources that are both really sharp and really responsive.

We believe in pro-action. Our tech guys monitor IT environments constantly. For each and every client. Our people are so good, they catch and correct issues before you have a chance to notice. That way, we find answers to questions you didn’t know you had yet. Even after business hours. Because for us, there’s no such thing as “after hours.”

Nerdio: Effortless, efficient, ever-present.

(the real superheroes)

Our booming but still tight-knit team is made up of tech geeks all across the board – from marketing, to support, to technologists. All are working together to deliver to you the best IT possible. Streaming, it’s the only way to go.

As true superheroes, they can be shy about revealing their true identities, but you can catch glimpses of them (their Clark Kent personas, that is) on our social media sites. Let’s be friends.

People, Culture, and Careers

Every company talks about people, but we walk the talk. Awesome people work at Adar for good reason – we take the same care of our people that we do of our clients. For us, it’s a community, so we cultivate and nurture both.

It’s just good business and humankind sense, really. To keep offering killer technology and service, and continue growing rapidly, we need some seriously skilled and super motivated people working behind the scenes to keep our momentum going strong.

We are foosball playing, coffee drinking, ping pong pros, craft-beer sipping, tech geeks. From countless cultures, backgrounds, nationalities, sizes, shapes, video-game preferences… you get the idea.

Technology is our world. We love it. And when you do what you love, you don’t work a single day. Too cheesy? Good.

If you have the skills, and you like the sound of our crazy world, check out our open positions. We’re always stoked to have great humanoids join the collective.
