ProfitBricks Honored as Coolest Cloud Computing Vendor by CRN

SAN ANTONIO, TX--(Marketwired - Feb 4, 2015) - ProfitBricks, the price/performance leader in Cloud Computing IaaS, today announced it has earned recognition on The Channel Company's CRN 20 Coolest Cloud Infrastructure Vendors of 2015. This annual list recognizes some of the most innovative cloud companies supporting the IT channel today. This marks the third year ProfitBricks made the list.

The 100 Coolest Cloud Computing Vendors honor is presented to companies based on their approach to creating innovative products, services or partner programs that have helped channel partners transform into true solution providers, ultimately helping customers take advantage of the ease of use, flexibility, scalability and savings that cloud computing offers.

Unlike other cloud providers that force managed service providers (MSPs) to pick from a short list of cloud server instance sizes, ProfitBricks allows MSPs to configure each cloud server uniquely with processing power up to 62 CPU cores, up to 240GB RAM and the block storage required to meet specific workload needs. ProfitBricks is also the only provider enabling MSPs and VARs to access the BIOS, leverage high-speed, low-latency InfiniBand network connections and pay only for what they use by the minute.

This year's 100 Coolest Cloud Computing honorees are identified across five major categories including: platforms, infrastructure, storage, security and software. This list is an effort to help solution providers navigate through the ambiguity of the cloud market to identify the vendors, products and services that can help elevate their cloud services offerings. Companies were chosen based on data and information gathered from solution provider nominations along with input from the CRN editorial team.

"Widespread demand for cloud computing solutions is increasing across businesses of all shapes and sizes. As organizations become more willing to adopt cloud technology and services, experienced solution providers are in greater demand," said Robert Faletra, CEO, The Channel Company. "The 100 Coolest Cloud Computing Vendors list enables solution providers to engage with companies who are poised to help them capitalize on these opportunities."

"ProfitBricks is committed to offering the channel the industry's most lucrative partner program as well as the best technology on the market," said Achim Weiss, CEO of ProfitBricks. "It's because of the commitment to this market that CRN honored us not only as one of the top 100, but specifically as one of the top 20 cloud infrastructure vendors in the industry."

Coverage of the 100 Coolest Cloud Computing Vendors will be featured in the February 2015 issue of CRN and online at
