Top IT Service Providers and MSPs Land on Inc. 5000 List

Despite some depressing economic data from small businesses, there's good news in the IT channel. Indeed, several hundred IT service providers -- including numerous MSPmentor 100 companies -- have landed on this year's Inc. 5000 list, which tracks the fastest-growing privately held companies in the United States.

Among the Inc. 5000 companies that caught our attention (in alphabetical order):

1. Amazon Consulting: The channel research firm raised revenues to $3.4 million in 2010, up 6 percent from 2007. Ranked 4893 overall and 628 in IT services.

2. ARRC Technology: The managed services provider saw revenues hit $7.7 million in 2010, up 32 percent from $5.8 million in 2007. Ranked 3992 overall and 517 in IT services.

3. Claris Networks: The cloud computing and managed services specialist lifted revenues to $7.1 million in 2010, up 25 percent from $5.6 million in 2007. Ranked 4230 overall and 554 in IT services. (Also ranked 45 on the MSPmentor 100.)

And a side note: Five Nines CEO Nick Bock allegedly took a California Road Trip with The VAR Guy back in July.

6. Intronis: The cloud backup storage provider, which works closely with MSPs, saw 2010 revenues hit $5.9 million, up 106 percent from $2.8 million in 2007. Ranked 2289 overall and 282 in IT services.

7. IT Authorities: A national MSP headquartered in Tampa, Fla. Revenues were $3.5 million in 2010, up 179% from $1.3 million in 2007. Ranked 1545 overall and 176 in IT services. (Also ranked 39 on the MSPmentor 100.)

10. SADA Systems: An IT services provider that specializes in Google Apps, Microsoft and cloud computing. SADA saw its 201 revenues hit $6.4 million, up 184 percent from $2.2 million in 2007. Ranked 1505 overall and 169 in IT services. (Also ranked on the Talkin' Cloud 50.)

11. SoftLayer: Arguably the largest privately held hosting provider in the United States. Revenues were $278.8 million in 2010, up a stunning 1178 percent from $21.8 million in 2007. I suspect some of that increase involves SoftLayer's merger with The Planet, but that's speculation on my part.

12. White Glove Technologies: One of Texas's leading MSPs, White Glove's revenues were $8.8 million in 2010, up 101 percent from $4.4 million in 2007. Ranked 2374 overall and 293 in IT services. (Also ranked 57 on the MSPmentor 100.)

13. Who Did We Miss: There were hundreds of IT service providers on the Inc. 5000 -- so chances are I accidentally overlooked some key MSPmentor 100 companies (and loyal MSPmentor readers) here. Please don't flame me. Instead, feel free to post a comment that tells us where you ranked on the Inc. 5000. Or email me (joe [at] NineLivesMediaInc [dot] com).

In the meantime, it's good to see so many IT service providers surface on the annual Inc. 5000 listing.
