iland Internet Solutions has landed on Nine Lives Media Inc.’s first-ever Talkin’ Cloud 50, a unique list and free research report identifying the world’s top 50 VARs, MSPs and IT service providers in cloud computing.

“Since we first introduced our VMware based cloud solutions in 2008, we recognized early on that IT services companies would have a need to partner with cloud service providers, and that has been proven by the successes and continued interest in the iland Partner Program. We have pioneered some of the most innovative solutions revolving around the cloud including a full array of disaster recovery solutions, production environments, and scalable test and development clouds," said Brian Ussher, President and Co-Founder, iland. "This year we have launched our highly anticipated iland vCloud Services in North America and Europe, enabling IT organizations to build and manage secure virtual data centers on trusted high performance cloud infrastructure with extensive compute capacity and flexible billing options. We are excited that the Talkin’ Cloud 50 report has recognized our company as a leader in the cloud community.”

The Talkin’ Cloud 50 report, available at http://www.talkincloud.com/biz-talk/talkin-cloud-50/, is based on data from Talkin’ Cloud’s online survey, completed in March 2011. The resulting report, overseen by Editorial Director Joe Panettieri, recognizes top VARs and MSPs in the cloud based on cloud-centric revenues, applications offered, users supported, and additional variables. The report also includes new classes of channel partners, including cloud service providers (CSPs), cloud aggregators and cloud brokers.

“Nine Lives Media Inc. and Talkin’ Cloud congratulate iland internet solutions for their leadership role in cloud computing,” said Amy Katz, CEO of Nine Lives Media Inc. “It’s a great to see the channel stepping to the forefront of cloud computing.”

“If you tune out the hype and look at the facts it’s clear that the cloud is real,” added Panettieri. “The Talkin’ Cloud 50 companies saw their annual cloud revenues grow nearly 50 percent on average. And they typical company on the list generated at least $6 million in cloud revenues -- a healthy figure considering the market is just getting started.”

Talkin’ Cloud, owned by Nine Lives Media Inc., covers the convergence of cloud computing and the channel. The site combines a video blog, daily news analysis, timely insights and forum chatter (beta) for VARs, MSPs, cloud service providers, cloud aggregators and cloud brokers navigating cloud computing.
