CRN Magazine Names ProfitBricks Emerging Technology Vendor

IaaS Provider Recognized for Cloud Computing Excellence; Also Named to CIO Review's 20 Most Promising Cloud Companies

BOSTON, MA--(Marketwired - Sep 18, 2013) - Since its launch one year ago, ProfitBricks, the Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) company that completely reengineered the delivery of cloud computing, has consistently received industry recognition for its cloud computing 2.0 solutions and price/performance leadership. Building further on this momentum, today ProfitBricks announced that it was named one of CRN Magazine's Emerging Technology Vendors, as well as to CIO Review's list of 20 Most Promising Cloud Companies.

The annual CRN Emerging Technology Vendors list highlights ProfitBricks and other hot tech startups making an impact on the channel and in the enterprise. Vendors on this list have recently introduced a new product or technology that is not only innovative, but generates the high margins solution providers require in today's competitive marketplace.

"Any technology vendor can claim to offer innovative products and groundbreaking technology, but only a select group can truly impact the marketplace with their offerings," said Robert Faletra, CEO, UBM Tech Channel. "The companies named to the 2013 Emerging Vendor list offer solutions that deliver as promised while creating the high margins that solution providers demand. We congratulate all the vendors for their commitment to delivering technological innovations that map to the needs of the dynamic channel market."

Cloud's Most Lucrative Channel Partner Program

ProfitBricks has the industry's most lucrative reseller program. Qualified reseller partners can receive a 25 percent discount on ProfitBricks' next-generation cloud computing services. ProfitBricks also offers a referral program with a 25 percent commission. Boasting a simple usage-based pricing model, ProfitBricks makes it easier than ever to sell advanced cloud computing infrastructure through the channel.

"CRN is a market leader in technology channel news, and it's an honor for them to recognize ProfitBricks' competitive channel program," said ProfitBricks USA CEO Bob Rizika. "ProfitBricks is leading the way in creating a program that rewards channel partners not only with incredibly high margins, but also superb implementation and post-sales customer support." 

Cloud Computing 2.0 Offers Seamless Enterprise Adoption

As the first cloud computing service to offer an easy-to-use, drag-and-drop graphic user interface, ProfitBricks dramatically simplified the setup and maintenance of cloud environments. Additionally, ProfitBricks is the price/performance leader among IaaS vendors, offering the most powerful and cost-effective cloud infrastructure on the market. ProfitBricks' usage-based billing model allows companies to pay for the infrastructure they use by the minute, with no pre-payments, reserved instances or long-term contracts.

Consequently, CIO Review recognized ProfitBricks in its 20 Most Promising Cloud Companies list. The list recognizes ProfitBricks as a company that has shown momentum in both helping enterprises move to the cloud and developing products and services to make this move seamless.
