Named Top 500 MSP by CRN for Second Consecutive Year
Company Recognized for Exemplary Approach to Delivery of Managed IT Services
CHEYENNE, WY - February 17, 2015 – Green House Data 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 wide array of service providers, delivery models, and technology can be overwhelming for businesses. To help facilitate the selection and adoption of managed services and providers, CRN identifies the top 500 MSPs annually.
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.
“It is satisfying to receive further recognition for our service-based approach to infrastructure and IT service delivery,” said Shawn Mills, CEO of Green House Data. “A second consecutive year on the Hosting 100 demonstrates that we won’t become complacent in satisfying customers and innovating the data center industry.”
Green House Data was again named to the list as a regional and national model for cloud, colocation, and managed IT services. After experiencing rapid triple-digit growth over the past several years, Green House Data has refused to compromise service levels, offering the same response times, 24/7 free customer service, and low customer-staff ratio clients have come to expect.
“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.”
Coverage of the MSP500 will be featured in the February 2015 issue of CRN and online at www.CRN.com.
