C3 Ranked #84 on Talkin Cloud 100

Second-Annual Report Lists The World’s Top 100 Cloud Service Providers (CSPs)

May 22, 2012 (Boca Raton, FL) — Cloud Computing Concepts (C3) ranks number 84 among the world’s top 100 cloud service providers (CSPs), according to Nine Lives Media’s second-annual Talkin’ Cloud 100 report. The top 100 CSPs generated more than $2.3 billion in combined cloud services revenues for 2011, up nearly 46 percent from 2010, according to the Talkin’ Cloud 100 report.

“Being selected as one of the world’s top 100 Cloud Service Providers is both an honor and a privilege,” said Rick Mancinelli, C3 Managing Partner.  “This achievement is a testament to our unique combination of Cloud based services and custom tailored on-site support. Rather than delivering particular products or services, C3 prides itself in delivering an IT ‘experience’ that is all encompassing, proactive, flat-rate, and designed to meet the needs of each individual client.”

The Talkin’ Cloud 100 report is based on data from Talkin’ Cloud’s online survey, conducted January through April 2012. 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).

“Nine Lives Media and Talkin’ Cloud congratulate C3,” 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.”

C3 currently operates a data center in Boca Raton, FL with additional data centers in New York City, Las Vegas and Madrid all planned to open in 2012.
