The Solution Provider 500 awards span eight categories including Cloud Elite, and recognize those Solution Provider 500 companies that have evolved and thrived in today's cloud and services driven IT era.

Quest was recognized as a leader in the Cloud category for providing customers with a full spectrum of cloud computing solutions and services, whether in public, private or hybrid cloud environments. “Our main focus is ‘How can we help?’”, said Tim Burke, Quest President and CEO. “We begin by engaging our customer to determine their overall business objectives and identifying technology capabilities that the customer requires. We’ve been providing cloud and managed services for over a decade and we’re greatly honored by this recognition.”

“Only 30 percent of the companies on this year's list were on the SP500 one decade ago," said Robert Faletra, CEO, The Channel Company. "The rapidly accelerating pace of change recasting the solution provider business model, and the technology services choices facing the channel is exactly why we started the Best of Breed Conference three years ago. We congratulate the featured solution providers and look forward to covering their continued success."
