SAN FRANCISCO, Oct. 18, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- FusionStorm — a national provider of IT consulting, technology solutions, cloud offerings and managed services — announced today that it has received the Intelisys Top Cloud Producer Award for 2012. This first-ever award recognizes FusionStorm as the top-producing sales agent for cloud technologies within Intelisys' channel of more than 700 agents for carrier services.
"We're really excited about how FusionStorm has embraced the cloud," said Andrew Pryfogle, SVP & GM, Cloud Services & Complex Bids, Intelisys. "FusionStorm is clearly leading the way in the IT solution provider community in terms of building a dedicated cloud services practice. Their commitment and investment in that effort is paying dividends, and we are honored to be able to recognize them as our top cloud producer for this first-annual award."
Intelisys is the largest master agent in the country for carrier services and an innovator in cloud service offerings. Through its partnership with Intelisys, FusionStorm is bringing an expansive portfolio of cloud-based solutions to its customers.
"We are grateful to Intelisys for recognizing and validating FusionStorm's leadership in cloud services," said FusionStorm District Manager Jason Kraft, who accepted the award on behalf of FusionStorm. "FusionStorm is traditionally seen as a hardware company but we have been providing hosted cloud services for quite some time. While many cloud providers have one or two options, FusionStorm can bring multiple options to the table and design a solution that truly meets the customer's needs. It's all about making sure customers have the best solutions available to them."
FusionStorm offers cloud solutions through its Carrier Services Group, which provides customers with telecom and related services. Launched in 2008, FusionStorm's Carrier Services Group anticipated the cloud trend and provided FusionStorm with a solid foundation for delivering cloud services to customers. FusionStorm has developed strong relationships with key service providers to ensure that customers get the support they need.
"Enterprise customers all over the world are shifting more of their IT spending toward an 'as-a-Service' model," said Pryfogle. "IT solution providers who can determine how to position themselves to take advantage of that shift are going to be the leaders over the long term. FusionStorm is proving how that model works."
