Tualatin, OR (PRWEB) February 18, 2015
Peak Hosting, the leading provider of Operations-as-a-ServiceSM managed hosting, today announced it has earned recognition on The Channel Company’s 2015 CRN Managed Service Provider (MSP) 500 list as one of the MSP Hosting 100. This annual list distinguishes the top technology providers and consultants in North America whose leading approach to managed services enables their customers to improve operational efficiencies, elicit greater value from their IT investments, and successfully leverage technology to achieve greater competitive advantage.
In today’s world of outsourced IT, the expertise of MSPs has become increasingly important to organizations. The plethora of choices in terms of consumption and procurement of technology can become overwhelming. To help facilitate companies’ selection and adoption of managed services and providers, CRN, the leading media outlet for technology vendors and solution providers who serve end-user customers, has identified the top 500 MSPs.
This year, CRN’s industry‐focused directory highlights the Top 500 MSPs in three categories: 100 Hosting Providers who are experienced in providing mainly off-premise, or cloud-based, services; 150 Elite Service Providers who are large data center-focused solution providers with a strong mix of on-premise professional services as well as off-premise services; and 250 Progressive Service Providers who have a business model heavily weighted toward managed services geared toward the small and midsize business market.
Peak Hosting’s Operations-as-a-Service provides companies with an end-to-end hosting solution, from initial consultation and design, all the way through ongoing maintenance and support. By providing the 17 skills required to run a technical operations department, the customer is able to focus on its core competencies and running the business, not a data center.
“Peak Hosting was founded to provide our customers with a different approach to hosting - one that is predicated on customer service, rather than the cloud approach that relies on commodity service while shoving customers onto existing oversubscribed equipment,” said Jeffrey Papen, CEO and founder, Peak Hosting. “At Peak Hosting, our team of engineers customize each solution to meet our customers’ requirements, and then provide ongoing technical support. Our 1:2 customer-to-staff ratio backs up our promise to serve. The rest of the hosting industry averages 300:2.”
“The allure of Everything-as-a-Service to organizations is largely rooted in the appeal of predictable operational expenses, cost-cutting, resource allocation and access to on-demand/pay-as-you-go technology. Therein lies a great need for the expertise of managed service providers,” said Robert Faletra, CEO, The Channel Company. “We congratulate the managed service providers who have engineered, or re-engineered, their businesses to deliver the services their customers rely on for future growth and ongoing success.”
