Secure Infrastructure & Services (SIAS), (a unit of Data Storage Corporation), a managed services provider to businesses using or considering moving to a cloud-based model, today announced that it has been recognized in The Channel Company’s exclusive 2015 CRN® Next-Gen 250 list. The annual list honors forward-thinking technology solution providers who have transformed their business by breaking into emerging technologies such as cloud computing, unified communications, virtualization, mobility, business analytics, and business intelligence. These solution providers, each in business for less than 20 years, have adapted to an evolving marketplace with precision, clearly identifying themselves as the leaders of the future.
“As emerging technologies come to market, so do the new delivery models needed to support them. Agile integrators are in demand now more than ever to architect new technology solutions to meet customer needs,” said Robert Faletra, CEO of The Channel Company. “The trailblazing solution providers honored in this year’s CRN Next-Gen 250 list continue to innovate and evolve to meet market demands and have clearly established themselves as the next generation of leadership in the IT channel. We congratulate the honorees named to this exclusive list for their achievements and look forward to following them in the future to see what they have in store.”
Through its managed service model, SIAS is helping mid-market firms built on IBM hardware platforms to fully embrace the power of the cloud through production capacity, storage, high availability, and disaster recovery services. The company’s ability to provide its customers with the necessary services to leverage the cloud to position their organizations for growth was a key factor in being included in the CRN Next-Gen 250 List.
“We’re happy to receive this recognition because it’s an acknowledgment of our commitment to the channel and to our reseller partners,” said Hal Schwartz, CEO of SIAS. “Developing and implementing cloud strategies for IT is a vast marketplace and many resellers lack the tools to reap the benefits. As a result, they’re losing out on this business and also risk losing customers to the cloud. SIAS works directly with our partners to provide the necessary levels of expertise, sales tools, funded marketing, and end-to-end sales support to not only succeed, but thrive in this new marketplace. We’re thrilled to be acknowledged by The Channel Company!”
A sampling of the Next-Gen 250 list will be featured in the August issue of CRN and online at both www.crn.com and through the CRN Tech News App for iPad and Windows 8.
