Claris Networks was recently recognized as the 19th
ranked Cloud Computing
provider in the country by information technology industry resource TalkinCloud.com
. The list, the “Talkin’ Cloud 50 Index,” analyzes cloud providers on a set of metrics including revenue, revenue growth, percentage growth and number of end users accessing the company’s cloud. The ranking means the Knoxville and Chattanooga-focused IT support company is among the top cloud providers in the country.
Early adoption of cloud technologies enabled Claris Networks to clearly position itself in the cloud computing market years ago, says Larry Bodie, the company’s President and CEO. “Claris Networks is not new on the scene. We’re not trying to ‘get into’ the cloud just to keep pace with the industry. We were on the scene before it was even called 'cloud computing.'”
Vice President, Dave Sagraves attributes the company’s success to its dedication to excellent service. “Our goal has always been to provide the best service a small business will ever experience from an IT provider,” says Sagraves. “Recognition like this is very encouraging, but unless we accomplish that goal, the awards don’t mean a whole lot.”
