SingleHop Named to Inaugural CRN Cloud Partner Program Guide

Editors Identify Cloud Providers, Technology Vendors With Robust Cloud Programs for the IT Channel

CHICAGO, IL--(Marketwired - Oct 6, 2014) - SingleHop, the leading provider of cloud-enabled managed hosting and on-demand infrastructure, announced today that it has been named to the inaugural CRN Cloud Partner Program Guide, a list of the leading technology vendors with cloud-related partner programs designed to benefit members of the indirect IT channel and their cloud initiatives. This guide offers solution providers a valuable resource for locating and exploring the IT industry's top cloud technologies, programs and offerings, and provides a way to connect with the organizations, like SingleHop, that make these cloud technologies and partner programs available specifically through the IT channel.

"Cloud computing is a game-changing technology, and it's imperative that the IT channel be able to quickly identify those organizations most deeply committed to helping solution providers grow their cloud-related revenue," said Robert Faletra, CEO of The Channel Company, publisher of CRN. "Each cloud provider and vendor noted by the CRN editors has been chosen based on its robust cloud partner program, as well as the unique and enthusiastic ways in which it has embraced the channel as a go-to-market strategy."

Cloud-based solutions are redefining the way clients want to consume services. SingleHop leads this wave with its globally recognized hosted IT infrastructure, cloud services, high-caliber security and redundancy, extensive automation, and onsite engineers. SingleHop's partner program brings enterprise-class technologies from industry-leading vendors, integrated into its own proprietary automation engine, to deliver the best cloud infrastructure experience for companies of any size. This is the second accolade SingleHop receives this year from CRN, the first being listed on CRN's annual Solution Provider 500 list, which recognizes the top VARs, solution providers, and integrators in North America, based on revenue size.

"Being named to CRN's new Cloud Partner Program Guide is a testament to our dedication to provide the best solution catered specifically to end-user needs and wants," said Mark Mercado, Vice President of Channel Sales at SingleHop. "But more importantly, it's a testament to our commitment to supporting our partners, and making selling cloud services easy for them. For us, a core principal is and always has been to be a trusted advisor to our partners and their customers. Adding cloud services to your portfolio shouldn't be a burden, and I am proud to say that SingleHop makes the whole process of selling the cloud easier than ever."

The Cloud Partner Program Guide will be featured in the October issue of CRN and can be viewed online at By combining tools like the new Cloud Partner Program Guide with conferences like The Channel Company's upcoming NexGen Cloud Conference & Expo, solution providers will have access to the most relevant and up-to-date information available to advance their cloud strategies and solutions.
