Corus360 was recently named to the Elite 150 category of CRN®’s 2020 Managed Service Provider (MSP) 500 list.
Atlanta, GA – March 2, 2020 — Corus360, a Converge Company, announced today that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company has named Corus360 to its 2020 Managed Service Provider (MSP) 500 list in the Elite 150 category. This popular list identifies North American solution providers that deliver operational efficiencies, IT system improvements, and a higher rate of return on investments for their customers. These accomplished MSPs work tirelessly to guide their customers and create solutions for complex IT issues.
This annual list is divided into three categories: The MSP Pioneer 250 who are focused primarily on the SMB market; the MSP Elite 150, large data center-focused on- and off-premises; and the Managed Security 100 made up of off-premises-focused, cloud-based IT security services.
Corus360’s managed services offerings began with its RES-Q™ Services practice in 2005, which was built to provide clients with disaster recovery and data backup solutions. Over time, RES-Q™ Services expanded its offerings to include Data Center-based recovery for all technology system platforms as well as a robust private cloud platform that delivers both availability and security. This success paved the way for additional service offerings such as IBM Power Systems hosting and a Veeam Cloud Connect DR-as-a-Service practice.
By acquiring and supporting next-generation data center technologies and Veeam’s Cloud Connect offerings, Corus360’s RES-Q™ Services division enables clients to implement resilient hybrid solutions that include both dedicated and shared computing resources, allowing them to take advantage of lower costs without the complexity that comes with maintaining a second disaster recovery data center. This resiliency practice, coupled with Corus360’s Microsoft Azure Cloud offerings, provides clients with many technology roadmap options.
Converge Technology Solutions Corp. acquired Corus360 in 2017, the first acquisition of twelve to date, making Corus360 a foundational component to the Converge platform. Since then, Corus360 has grown its managed service offerings through its cohesive relationships with its sister companies. Converge’s portfolio of companies further expands Corus360’s pool of technical talent in the areas of disaster recovery and resiliency services.
“MSPs are the critical bridge for customers looking to assess, implement and migrate their IT and cloud solutions to drive efficiencies, lower costs and secure your environment,” said Bob Skelley, CEO of The Channel Company. “On behalf of our team at The Channel Company, I want to congratulate the accomplished companies on CRN’s 2020 MSP 500 list and thank them for their commitment to finding innovative solutions that move the IT channel forward.”
“We are excited to be recognized for the work our teams put into assisting customers enhance their technology resiliency and recoverability,” said Steve Gruber, VP of RES-Q™ Services. “RES-Q™ Services is dedicated to providing customers with proven, testable technology solutions with superior support to ensure that their businesses can continue operating in the event of a disaster.”
