Cloudnexa Recognized for Excellence in Managed IT Services
Cloudnexa, an industry-leading managed cloud provider that helps clients realize the full utility power of cloud computing for Amazon Web Services (AWS), announced today that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has named it to its 2016 Managed Service Provider (MSP) 500 list in the MSP Pioneer 250 category.
This annual list recognizes North American solution providers with cutting-edge approaches to delivering managed services. Their top-notch offerings help companies navigate the complex and ever-changing landscape of IT, improve operational efficiencies, and maximize their return on IT investments.
In today’s fast-paced business environments, MSPs play an important role in helping companies leverage new technologies without straining their budgets or losing focus on their core business. CRN’s MSP 500 list shines a light on the most forward-thinking and innovative of these key organizations.
The list is divided into three categories: the MSP Pioneer 250, recognizing companies with business models weighted toward managed services and largely focused on the SMB market; the MSP Elite 150, recognizing large, data center-focused MSPs with a strong mix of on-premise and off-premise services; and the MSP Hosting Service Provider 100, recognizing MSPs focused primarily on off-premise, cloud-based services.
Cloudnexa specializes in providing managed services, provisioning and migration assistance around the AWS cloud platform, particularly to midmarket businesses and government organizations that are increasingly adopting cloud technologies. The company is certified as a Premier Consulting Partner in the AWS Partner Network (APN) and an audited AWS Managed Service Partner.
Unlike traditional project-oriented and people-dependent professional service consultancies, Cloudnexa is a managed cloud service provider (MCSP) that leverages the latest tools and technologies to automate key management functions. This not only ensures the reliability of their services, it also avoids the continuity issues which often affect consulting services when key personnel leave a firm.
“As an innovative MCSP, we take a different approach than traditional MSPs that manage on-premises or colo solutions and likely have a much different business model and cost structure than ours,” said Joel Davne, Cloudnexa. “We also offer a proprietary vNOC Cloud Management tool that allows AWS cloud users to efficiently manage security, governance, provisioning, operations and more. Finally, our pricing is utility based, with no minimum purchase requirements or onboarding fees.”
In October 2015, Cloudnexa also unveiled its White Label Managed Service Program (MSP), which allows existing AWS Partner Network members to expand their businesses by offering Cloudnexa managed services to their customers. Cloudnexa’s vNOC management platform is a complement to the AWS console and enables customers to view, manage and provision their AWS environments from a single portal, with management capabilities such as billing, resource management, performance, security and governance.
“MSPs meet a critical need in the IT market, providing customized, turnkey services that allow for predictable operational expenses, effective control of expenditures, precise allocation of limited resources and convenient access to on-demand and pay-as-you-go technology,” said Robert Faletra, CEO, The Channel Company. “We congratulate the service providers of the MSP 500, who continually reinvent themselves to successfully meet their customers’ changing needs, helping businesses get the most out of their IT investments and sharpen their competitive edge.”
The MSP 500 list will be featured in the February 2016 issue of CRN and online at www.CRN.com/msp500.
