2nd Watch Recognized by CRN on 2016 Emerging Vendors List

SEATTLE, WA--(Marketwired - Jul 20, 2016) - 2nd Watch, a leading managed public cloud provider, announces that CRN, a brand of The Channel Company, has named 2nd Watch to its 2016 list of emerging vendors. This annual list recognizes recently founded, up-and-coming technology suppliers which are shaping the future of the IT channel through unique technological innovations. Beyond celebrating these standout companies, the CRN Emerging Vendors list also serves as a valuable resource for solution providers looking to expand their portfolios with cutting-edge technology.

2nd Watch, founded in 2010, is a pioneer in public cloud migration, management and optimization. The company has been an AWS Premier Partner since 2012 when the program launched. Since then, 2nd Watch has achieved numerous milestones, including multiple AWS Competencies, the latest for AWS Migration. Earlier this year, 2nd Watch was named to the CRN 2016 Managed Service Provider (MSP) 500, in the Hosting 100 group. 2nd Watch manages more than 100,000 AWS instances every month, often migrating thousands of instances in aggressive timeframes. The firm's processes can reduce IT operating costs by 50% or more while ensuring ITIL standards.

"The select group of companies on our Emerging Vendors list have already made a name for themselves in their short time in the IT community, introducing leading-edge technologies with the potential to transform their segments of the IT market," says Robert Faletra, CEO of The Channel Company. "These tech suppliers are quickly making their mark on the industry and are the ones solution providers should watch in 2016."

"Large companies are committing more budget every year to the public cloud and leveraging these resources more aggressively. While security is always a top concern, the challenges are more around managing a dynamic environment," says Jeff Aden, executive VP of strategic business development and marketing with 2nd Watch. "We continue to innovate and follow customer needs as this journey continues. The CRN recognition is a wonderful affirmation of our team in helping companies maximize results from the cloud." 

The Emerging Vendors list will be featured in the August 2016 issue of CRN and online at www.crn.com/emergingvendors.
