Marks Fourth Consecutive Year Named to Prestigious List

St. Louis, MO, June 11, 2015 – Connectria Hosting, a world leader in cloud hosting and founder of the No Jerks Allowed® movement, today announced it has been named to The Channel Company’s 2015 CRN® Solution Provider 500. The annual list, spanning eight categories, from hardware and software sales to managed IT services, recognizes the top revenue-generating technology integrators, MSPs and IT consultants in North America. Solution providers are ranked based on revenue, determined by product and services sales during 2014.

“Once again, we are proud to be recognized by CRN as a one of the Top 500 Solution Providers, said Rich Waidmann, Connectria President and CEO. “This is the fourth consecutive year Connectria has been named to the Solution Provider 500 and earlier this year, Connectria was also named as CRN’s Top Hosting 100 and Managed Service Provider (MSP) 500. To be recognized by CRN across several categories is a testament to Connectria’s broad solution and service set, which includes Managed Cloud Hosting on Amazon Web Services, Microsoft Azure, and Compliance Hosting to meet HIPAA/HITECH and PCI DSS requirements.

“The companies represented here are truly dedicated to the needs of customers today. With an evolving IT landscape, this prestigious list serves as a valuable industry resource to help vendors navigate the solution provider community and identify the best partners for their business,” said Robert Faletra, CEO, The Channel Company.
