Ascent Data Named to CRN’s MSP Hosting Service Provider 100 List

Ascent Data, Pittsburgh’s trusted IT managed services and hosting partner, today announced it has been named to CRN’s MSP Hosting Service Provider 100 list. The annual list recognizes the top technology providers and consultants in North America whose cutting-edge approach to managed services puts end-user customers in the best position to improve efficiencies, cut costs and speed time to market for their own products and services.

In today’s world of computing power, end users are barraged by options. CRN, the leading media outlet for vendors and solution providers attempting to understand sales and service channels, selected the top MSPs in order to bring clarity to the decision-making process.

This year, CRN’s annual Managed Services Provider (MSP) 500 list is broken down into three groups, highlighting the MSP Hosting Service Provider 100, who, like Ascent Data, own and operate their own data centers and provide a wide array of subscription-based outsourced services; the MSP Elite 150, who are large data center-focused solution providers; and the MSP Pioneer 250, who have a business model heavily weighted toward managed services focused on the small- and midsize-business market.

Ascent Data applies a highly skilled professional team with a broad range of IT experience to fill the knowledge gaps and extend the IT expertise of its customers. The company provides 24X7 operations and support to help clients provide exceptional service levels, contain costs and maintain control. Ascent Data’s safe and secure data centers are engineered to deliver the infrastructure reliability, data security, and concern for privacy its customers demand.

“The managed services landscape continues to evolve rapidly as organizations are discovering they can impact both bottom-line and top-line growth,” said Robert Faletra, CEO, The Channel Company. “When it comes to strong managed services and off-premise solutions, these companies are the industry’s proven leaders, showing just how they can change the game for their customers and we congratulate them on their success.”

“More and more customers are looking for a local solution provider who can deliver both tailored IT managed services to improve focus, expertise and cost effectiveness, and a safe, secure and private remote data center,” said Dean Genge, president of Ascent Data. “CRN’s validation will provide added confidence that customers are making the right choice when they select Ascent Data.”

Coverage of the MSP500 will be featured in the February/March issue of CRN, and online atwww.CRN.com,
