Custom Cloud Solutions Provider included in 5th Annual Talkin’ Cloud 100 Report of World’s Top Cloud Computing Companies in the IT Channel for Fourth Consecutive Year
VIENNA, Va. – Sept. 9, 2015 – Cetrom Information Technology, Inc. (Cetrom), an industry-leading provider of custom cloud solutions that transform the way SMBs succeed, announces it is ranked among the world’s Top 100 Cloud Service Providers (CSPs) for the fourth consecutive year, according to Penton’s fifth-annual Talkin’ Cloud 100 report. The Top 100 CSPs generated more than $30 billion in combined cloud services revenues in 2014, up nearly 29 percent over what they reported the previous year.
Nicole Henderson, editor in chief, Talkin’ Cloud, said, “On behalf of Penton and Talkin’ Cloud, I would like to congratulate Cetrom for its recognition as a Talkin’ Cloud 100 honoree. The industry is changing at a rapid pace and the Talkin’ Cloud 100 companies consistently demonstrate an agility and flexibility that sets them apart. They do so with innovation, via strategic partnerships, and through their commitment to providing superior customer experiences.”
This year’s Talkin’ Cloud 100 list, based on an online survey conducted January through May 2015, recognizes top Cloud Services Providers (CSPs), Cloud Services Brokerages (CSBs), Cloud Services Aggregators (CSAs), Managed Service Providers (MSPs), and Value-Added Resellers (VARs) based on such metrics as annual cloud services revenue growth (both in actual dollars and in percentage growth rates), and input from Penton Technology’s Channel editors.
In addition to Talkin’ Cloud 100, Cetrom also achieved its Service Organization Control (SOC 2) Type II certification in March and, in July, announced that it reinvested over $1 million into the company with a primary focus on hardware upgrades. The capital will improve all aspects of the company, but its primary focus is the set up and implementation of powerful-capacity Storage Area Networks (SANs) and servers.
Christopher Stark, president and CEO, Cetrom, said, “We are honored to receive this great recognition and aim to continue our industry success into 2016. We have spent the last year really looking at how we can continue to provide better service and innovation to our clients and truly believe that the steps we have taken will help propel us into the future.”
