Top 20 Stories in May: AWS Leader, Bullies, Michael Dell, SD-WAN Rankings

The big cloud providers. SD-WAN and CPaaS lists. Tech racism and bullying. But what was No. 1 in May?

20 Slides

Is the eighth day of the month too late to publish a list of top 20 stories from the previous month? We hope not.

Our monthly countdown is once again packed with channel goodness, this time from May. As usual, this is your list, as we select the news and articles that get the most traffic. We also weigh the success of these top 20 stories in our weekly newsletter. (Sign up for that here.)

This edition features a couple of posts that continue to be “hot reads.” One is a racist tweet that led to a CRO jumping ship after six weeks on the job. Another is “outrage” over Apple’s latest iPads failing to feature 5G connectivity. There’s also Frontier’s emergence from bankruptcy, which remains a big topic of discussion.

But most are brand-new to the countdown and are very channel-centric. For instance, take AWS’ new marketplace leader, and our one-on-one with Google Cloud’s channel chief.

Then there’s a breakdown of top CPaaS companies and our list of 20 top SD-WAN providers.

Which story was No. 1? Check out our slideshow above to find out. Then, if you missed last month’s top 20 stories, go here.
