AWS Cloud Managed Services Provider Joins List of Top-Tier Global MSP Providers.

SEATTLE, WA--(Marketwired - Apr 7, 2015) - 2nd Watch, the public cloud workload management company, has been included in the eighth-annual MSPmentor 501 Global Edition, a distinguished list and report identifying the world's top 501 managed service providers (MSPs). The MSPmentor 501 results are based on an annual survey, conducted in December and January by parent company Penton Technology. The results rank MSPs based on annual recurring revenues, dollar growth, percentage growth, devices managed and more.
