IT Cloud Provider Datapipe Makes Top Cloud Provider List
Second-Annual Report Lists the World’s Top 100 Cloud Service Providers (CSPs)
Jersey City, NJ, June 28, 2012 – Cloud provider Datapipe, a global provider of managed services, infrastructure, and IT cloud computing, today announced it has been recognized by Talkin’ Cloud on its Top 100 Cloud Services Provider list. Datapipe ranked #21 for its ability to deliver cloud computing solutions and management of AWS, CloudStack, and VMware environments.
Stratosphere™, Datapipe’s flagship cloud offering, is built on a world-class network, and available as a secure public or hosted private cloud. Engineered to meet enterprise requirements for governance, usability, compliance and interoperability, Stratosphere™ is a globally available, high-performance managed cloud computing platform. Datapipe’s CEO, Robb Allen, elaborates on why his company’s cloud platform continues to be selected as a top cloud offering:
“Unlocking the power of the cloud requires a clear understanding of the appropriate use cases for cloud technology,” Allen said. “Datapipe combines the industry’s best tools, talent and processes to empower enterprise organizations with the benefits of cloud computing. Providing a globally available, cloud diverse ecosystem (AWS, CloudStack, VMware) all managed through a single pane of glass, makes Datapipe unique in the marketplace.”
The Talkin’ Cloud 100 report is based on data from Talkin’ Cloud’s online survey, conducted January through April 2012. The 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). This year’s Top 100 cloud service providers generated more than $2.3 billion in combined cloud services revenues for 2011, up nearly 46 percent from 2010.
