Mission Named a Top 100 Public Cloud MSP for 2018

ChannelE2E list and research honors leading MSPs supporting Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft Azure and Google Cloud Platform (GCP) customers.

LOS ANGELES, October 19, 2018Mission, a managed services and consulting company for cloud platforms including Amazon Web Services (AWS) and Microsoft Azure, today announced that ChannelE2E, published by After Nines Inc., has named the nationwide cloud MSP to the Top 100 Public Cloud MSP list for 2018.

The list and research identify and honor the top 100 managed services providers (MSPs) that support Amazon Web Services, Microsoft Azure and/or Google Cloud Platform (GCP) customers, according to ChannelE2E’s findings.

“We are honored to be named a top-15 public cloud MSP by ChannelE2E after their extensive research into this fast-growing marketplace,” said Simon Anderson, CEO, Mission. “It’s particularly exciting that this designation comes just days after we unveiled Mission as our new brand to connect the recent mergers of cloud MSP stalwarts Reliam, Stratalux, and G2 Tech Group. We see this high-ranking placement as further validation that joining forces to deliver trusted managed services for public cloud platforms has made us stronger than the sum of our parts – and we’re really just getting started. We invite prospective customers to reach out and learn how we can help them achieve their cloud transformation and optimization goals, as we have for nearly 200 enterprises across industries.”

Top 100 Public Cloud MSPs 2018: ChannelE2E Research Findings

The Top 100 Public Cloud MSP rankings are based on ChannelE2E’s 2018 readership survey combined with aggregated third-party research. MSPs featured throughout the list and research provide consulting, migration, optimization, monitoring and/or cost management services for public clouds.

The overall global managed services market now spans more than 80,000 MSPs. However, fewer than 500 of those MSPs are extensively certified to support AWS, Azure and/or GCP workloads, ChannelE2E’s research concluded.

The Top 100 Public Cloud MSPs 2018 list and research is a global report. The honorees include MSPs from 22 countries. The lineup includes:

  • 68 MSPs focused on AWS
  • 43 MSPs focused on Azure
  • 30 MSPs focused on Google Cloud Platform
  • Dozens of the MSPs focus on both AWS and Azure, but only six MSPs were honored across all three platforms

Demand for public cloud MSPs continues to escalate as customers attempt to move, activate, manage and optimize workloads across AWS, Azure, GCP and other public clouds. The global cloud managed services market was $23.19 billion in 2016, and is forecast to generate a 15.4 percent compound annual growth rate (CAGR) through 2025, according to Grand View Research.

“After Nines Inc. and ChannelE2E congratulate Mission on this year’s honor,” said Amy Katz, CEO of After Nines Inc. “As customers seek out qualified public cloud partners, Mission has emerged as a leader in this market.”
