iomart Ranked 20 Among Top 100 Cloud Services Providers

4th Annual Talkin’ Cloud 100 Report Identifies World’s Top Cloud Computing Companies in the IT Channel

iomart ranks among the world’s Top 100 Cloud Service Providers (CSPs), according to Penton Media’s fourth-annual Talkin’ Cloud 100 report.

iomart, which is headquartered in Glasgow, provides cloud computing, storage and security services from a network of data centers across the UK.

The Top 100 CSPs generated more than $23.4 billion in combined cloud services revenues in 2013, up nearly 44 percent from what they reported the previous year. 

In addition to honoring iomart, this year’s Talkin’ Cloud 100 report profiles:

  • Cloud Services Providers: CSPs offer SaaS (software as a service), infrastructure as a service (IaaS) and/or PaaS (platform as a service) to partners/customers.
  • Cloud Services Brokerages: CSBs, or cloud brokers, recommend and resell multiple cloud services to customers, and often integrate those services.
  • Cloud Services Aggregators: CSAs, or cloud aggregators, typically offer a portal that allows VARs and MSPs to source multiple third-party cloud services for customers.
  • MSPs (Managed Service Providers) with cloud services expertise: MSPs proactively monitor and manage customers’ on-premises and cloud-based systems.
  • VARs (value-added resellers) with cloud services expertise: VARs offer a range of IT consulting, deployment, integration and management services to customers.

"We are delighted to have secured a place in the Top 20 and to be recognized as one of the leading Cloud Service Providers in the world," said Angus MacSween, CEO of iomart. "We will continue to invest and innovate in the computing, storage and network infrastructure that is supporting this era of Big Data and the Internet of Things."

The Talkin’ Cloud 100 report is based on data from Talkin’ Cloud’s online survey, conducted January through May 2014. The Talkin’ Cloud 100 report recognizes top cloud service providers based on such metrics as annual cloud services revenue growth (both in actual dollars and in percentage growth rates).

“Penton and Talkin’ Cloud congratulate iomart,” said Charlene O’Hanlon, Senior Executive Editor and Executive Managing Editor of Talkin’ Cloud. “The Talkin’ Cloud 100 represents those companies leading the way in the cloud space at a critical point in the maturation of the market.”
