  • 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.

"These rankings provide us with validation within the cloud provider space" said Gil Zimmermann, CEO & Co-founder, CloudLock. "Listening and staying in touch with customers is our best vice, and gives us a step up in the cloud game. We are really honored to be recognized."

The Talkin’ Cloud 100 report is based on data from Talkin’ Cloud’s online survey, conducted January through May 2014. The Talkin’ Cloud 100 report recognizes top cloud service providers based on such metrics as annual cloud services revenue growth (both in actual dollars and in percentage growth rates).
