Cheyenne, WY, August 06, 2013 –(PR.com)– Green House Data, a leading provider of cloud hosting, colocation, and a VMware vCloud powered partner, today announced that it has ranked among the world’s Top 100 Cloud Service Providers (CSPs), according to Nine Lives Media’s third-annual Talkin’ Cloud 100 report. 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, which is available now by visiting http://www.talkincloud.com/tc100.
In addition to honoring Green House Data, this year’s Talkin’ Cloud 100 report profiles:
· Cloud Services Providers: CSPs offer SaaS (software as a service), infrastructure as a service (IaaS) and/or PaaS (platform as a service) to partners/customers.
· Cloud Services Brokerages: CSBs, or cloud brokers, recommend and resell multiple cloud services to customers, and often integrate those services.
· Cloud Services Aggregators: CSAs, or cloud aggregators, typically offer a portal that allows VARs and MSPs to source multiple third-party cloud services for customers.
· MSPs (Managed Service Providers) with cloud services expertise: MSPs proactively monitor and manage customers’ on-premises and cloud-based systems.
· VARs (value-added resellers) with cloud services expertise: VARs offer a range of IT consulting, deployment, integration and management services to customers.
"This is our debut on the Talkin’ Cloud 100 list," said Shawn Mills, President, Green House Data. "We are honored to be in the company of global brands like SAP, Microsoft, and Oracle."
