Nine Lives Media Names Netgain to the Talkin’ Cloud 100



Second-Annual Report Lists The World’s Top 100 Cloud Service Providers (CSPs)
June 20, 2012 – Netgain ranks 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.

Netgain, which Talkin’ Cloud cites as one of the best-known cloud companies in the healthcare vertical, delivers private cloud solutions for physician practices and rural and community hospitals throughout the United States.

“We’re thrilled to be named among some of the best cloud providers in the world,” said Scott Warzecha, President  & Founder of Netgain. “We’re afforded this opportunity in the healthcare market because of our focus on the security regulations in the industry.  Our private cloud solutions provide a greater level of security and control than most of the public cloud offerings.”

Netgain, founded in 2000, was a pioneer in the utility-based computing and has been on the cusp of cloud technologies like virtualization, storage area networks, and the like, offering the healthcare market an alternative method of information technology.

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 Netgain,” 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.”
