Los Angeles, CA, May 24, 2012: SADA Systems 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, which is available now by visiting

This year’s Talkin’ Cloud 100 report (formerly the Talkin’ Cloud 50) has been expanded to include:

  • Cloud service providers -- companies that offer IaaS, PaaS and/or SaaS
  • Cloud aggregators -- companies that offer online marketplaces for sourcing cloud applications, platforms and/or infrastructure
  • Cloud brokers -- companies that recommend a range of cloud applications for customers
  • Cloud integrators -- companies that link multiple cloud services into a customer solution
  • VARs (value-added resellers) with cloud services expertise
  • MSPs (managed service providers) with cloud services expertise

“SADA Systems is honored to be ranked #28 on the Talkin’ Cloud 100, and we look forward to continuing to provide the service and expertise that merit this kind of recognition,” said Tony Safoian, President and CEO of SADA Systems.  “Cloud computing is opening up worlds of potential, driving innovation by transforming the ways that people work in the new paradigm of Information Technology.  SADA is proud to continue to evolve and differentiate ourselves as leaders in this space.”

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 SADA Systems,” 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.”
