The Talkin' Cloud 100 honor arrives amid a land grab in the cloud computing market. And the Talkin' Cloud 100 companies are leading that land grab.
S. San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) September 10, 2013
Netswitch Technology Management ranks among California's Top 9 Managed Service Providers, and the world's Top 100 Cloud Service Providers (CSPs), according to Nine Lives Media's MSPmentor 501 and the third-annual Talkin' Cloud 100 report, respectively.
MSPs on this year’s global 501 list lifted their combined annual recurring revenues 24.5 percent to $2.54 billion. Together, those MSPs now manage more than 5.6 million PCs and servers, and nearly 400,000 smartphones and tablets, according to Joe Panettieri, editorial director, Nine Lives Media. The Top 100 CSPs generated more than $15.7 billion in combined cloud services revenues in 2012, up nearly 37 percent, according to the report.
"We are delighted that Netswitch has made the Talkin' Cloud 100 and MSPmentor 501 rankings this year," said Stanley Li, CEO, Netswitch. "Our growth in the last 12 months has been phenominal and these rankings are validating. The demand for our Cloud services as a part of our Managed Services suite has been crazy. Our clients report it's saving them a lot of money and headaches, while providing them huge flexibility in hardware and human resource investments."
The Talkin' Cloud 100 report recognizes top cloud service providers based on such metrics as annual cloud services revenue growth (both in actual dollars and in percentage growth rates). Talkin' Cloud, produced by Nine Lives Media, is the go-to resource for CSPs, VARs and MSPs profiting from cloud computing and is the first online media destination for channel partners working in the cloud.
“The managed services market continues to grow swiftly, said Amy Katz, president of Nine Lives Media. "Small, midsize and large MSPs worldwide deserve greater recognition for their accelerating momentum. The new MSPmentor 501 Global Edition and MSPmentor 100 Small Business Edition, along with our regional lists, fulfill that mission.”
Netswitch's history began in San Francisco in the year 2000, with a small Network Engineering consulting practice, and evolved through expansion into Internet Security, Cloud Computing and Managed Services with offices in Thailand, Beijing, Hong Kong and Shanghai, to today, offering ERP, Web Development and Systems Integration services with the acquisition of Endymion Systems Group (ESI) in 2012. Now, global clients like Verizon Wireless, Wells Fargo Bank, Charles Schwab, eBay, Bechtel, Halliburton, Vodafone Americas, Inc., The Hong Kong & Shanghai Hotels Limited, and Adobe Systems are partnering with Netswitch.
