Constant Refinement. Continuing Progress.

At this point, you've certainly noticed the Instantiations logo, website, and VAST branding are significantly different than before. We're still the same company you've known for years, but we've made these changes to better reflect the current state of our business that's diversifying with expanded services and new technologies. On the surface, it might look like we've made […]
