Uptime Named on 2012 Cloud100 List: Among Top Cloud Service Providers Worldwide

Uptime is proud to announce that it has ranked as one of the Top 100 Worldwide Cloud Service Providers (CSPs). Honored on the Talkin’ Cloud 100 List, Uptime Systems joins the ranks of Amazon, Rackspace, AppRiver, and other Cloud Computing leaders.

Each year Nine Lives Media ranks the top 100 Cloud Service Providers, Cloud aggregators, Cloud brokers, Cloud Integrators, Value-Added Resellers and Managed Services Providers across the world. The Talkin’ Cloud 100 survey is conducted by Nine Lives Media from January through April each year. The Talkin’ Cloud 100 report recognizes top cloud service providers based on such metrics as annual cloud services revenue, recurring vs. non-recurring revenue, and revenue growth (both in actual dollars and in percentage growth rates).

Nine Lives Media and Talkin’ Cloud congratulate Uptime Systems,” said Amy Katz, president of Nine Lives Media, a division of Penton Media. “The Talkin’ Cloud 100 honor arrives amid a land grab in the cloud computing market. And the Talkin’ Cloud 100 companies are leading that land grab.

We are very proud to have made the Cloud 100 List,” says Dennis Dimka, Managing Director of Uptime Systems. “Our ranking on the list validates the business case for cloud computing and our role within it. Our Cloud solutions truly deliver Fortune 500 caliber systems to small businesses for less than the cost of in-house infrastructure. We’re thrilled to help our clients leverage cloud computing to compete with the same sophistication and economies of scale as their larger competitors.

Uptime continues to broaden and perfect its lineup of Cloud services including Virtual Desktop Hosting, Virtual Server Hosting, hosted Practice Management for Law Firms, Hosted PBX/VOIP, Online Backup & Recovery, Hosted Exchange, SharePoint, and Lync. Uptime will continue its growth curve in 2012 as it continues to onboard more customers, roll out new products, and maintain strong customer retention. Uptime’s financial health remains very strong; its growth persists while maintaining a strong positive cash flow, without outside investors, and while remaining completely debt-free.
