FRAMINGHAM, Mass., March 28, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Everything Channel, a UBM company, today announced CRN's Top 100 Cloud Computing Vendors. The list highlights the most innovative cloud vendors and solutions for the channel - including storage cloud offerings, security cloud offerings, cloud apps, cloud infrastructure and cloud platforms to assist solution providers in navigating the cloud phenomena successfully.
"This year's Top Cloud Computing Vendors award is based on a cloud vendor's approach to creating an innovative product, or an innovative approach to supporting solution providers in the IT channel," said Kelley Damore, Vice President and Editorial Director CRN. "Specifically, these Cloud vendors help resellers transform themselves into true service providers and help organizations and enterprises take advantage of the ease, flexibility, scalability, elasticity and cost savings that leveraging cloud computing has to offer."
The 100 Coolest Cloud Computing Vendors are broken up in to five categories -- storage, security, productivity, infrastructure and platforms. Honorees were selected based on data and information gathered from solution provider nominations and the CRN editorial team.
The 100 Coolest Cloud Computing Vendors are not based solely on technology. Instead, the honor is based on the vendor's approach to supporting solution providers in the IT channel. Specifically, these are the Cloud vendors that help resellers transform themselves into true service providers and help organizations and enterprises take advantage of the ease, flexibility, scalability, elasticity and cost savings that leveraging cloud computing has to offer.
