CRN Names Cloudyn 2014 Emerging Vendor
Cloudyn, an industry-leading solution for cloud monitoring and optimization, announced today that CRN, a top news source for solution providers and the IT channel, recognized it as one of this year’s hottest emerging technology vendors. CRN’s annual Emerging Vendors list recognizes up-and-coming technology vendors that have introduced innovative products and created new opportunities for channel partners in North America, who can, in turn, create high-margin, cutting-edge solutions for their customers.
With Cloudyn’s flagship product, IT managers, CIOs, and CFOs have access to unparalleled analytics so they can proactively identify excessive spending, unused resources, and over-provisioned services across public, private, and hybrid clouds. Through insight into usage trends and cost allocation, coupled with actionable recommendations, businesses are better equipped to manage their cloud activity as well as enhance performance and reduce cloud spend.
Introduced last fall, Cloudyn MSP enables Managed Service Providers (MSPs) to create new revenue streams, increase profits and round-out their cloud offerings. With this offering, MSPs, System Integrators (SIs), and cloud resellers can easily visualize cost, usage, and saving opportunities across all customers. Cloudyn MSP also enables accurate cost allocation and calculation of profit margins for each and every customer.
“Solution providers are always on the hunt for the next big technology trend so that they can bring new solutions to their customers before they even know they need them. These vendors are on the forefront of IT innovation and are offering products and services that channel partners can use to stay ahead of the competition,” said Robert Faletra, CEO of The Channel Company, publisher of CRN. “We congratulate 2014’s Emerging Vendors for creating the next wave of technology that will drive the IT industry forward and for opening the door to new, unique solutions from the IT channel.”
“We know that it can be quite challenging for SIs and other managed service providers, who are often managing the combined cloud capacity of dozens or even hundreds of deployments, to ensure that their customers’ cloud operations run efficiently,” said Sharon Wagner, CEO of Cloudyn. “We’re honored to be recognized along with our esteemed peers by CRN. Cloudyn is committed to continuously improving our product offering to ensure our customers’ ongoing success.”
Companies who were included in CRN’s 2014 Emerging Vendors list were founded in 2008 or later and are actively working with channel partners in North America. The list, along with information about each vendor, will be published in CRN’s August 2014 issue and will also be available online at www.crn.com.
