Perseverance and Commitment Land The I.T. Pros on CRN's Fast Growth 100 for Second Year

The I.T. Pros Places at #63, One of Only 13 Chosen in California

With close to 120,000 IT consulting firms in the U.S. (according to IBISWorld), marketplace competition is fierce and only those committed to growth and finding a profitable niche will thrive. For the second year running, The I.T. Pros has been recognized as not only thriving, but #63 among the top 100 as rated by CRNs annual Fast Growth 100 List (FG100).

One of only 13 providers chosen in California, The I.T. Pros is proving its devotion to three profit centers: virtualization software, storage, and managed services is a strong combination and in demand in the current market. The company delivers operational efficiencies and bottom line savings that its clients were unable to achieve previously.

We have worked hard to be the best, both in technical expertise and customer service, comments The I.T. Pros president, Doug Ford. Landing on CRNs list two years running is just the beginning of proving we are here to stay and are committed to offering our clients a compelling value proposition regardless of the economic climate.

According to CRN, the two most popular action items that contributed to growth over the last year were streamlining operations and building the customer base. The I.T. Pros attests to these activities as strong factors in its own growth, as the company has recently made a significant commitment to its sales team, sales model and customer service.

This type of success in a down economy is also of note. And in fact, for The I.T. Pros, the economy is a reason for success: Clients need to increase efficiencies and cut costs. By utilizing The I.T. Pros as a single source supplier and network manager, clients take advantage of expertise and scale efficiencies they would not otherwise have.

When building large, cloud-based applications that operate at a high scale, it’s important to maintain a high availability and resilience to failures. In order to do that, you must be tolerant of failures, even in light of failures in other areas of your application. “Fly two mistakes high” is an old adage in the radio control airplane hobby. It means, fly high enough so that if you make a mistake, you can continue flying with room to still make mistakes. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Lee A...

Containers and Kubernetes allow for code portability across on-premise VMs, bare metal, or multiple cloud provider environments. Yet, despite this portability promise, developers may include configuration and application definitions that constrain or even eliminate application portability. In this session we'll describe best practices for "configuration as code" in a Kubernetes environment. We will demonstrate how a properly constructed containerized app can be deployed to both Amazon and Azure ...
Modern software design has fundamentally changed how we manage applications, causing many to turn to containers as the new virtual machine for resource management. As container adoption grows beyond stateless applications to stateful workloads, the need for persistent storage is foundational - something customers routinely cite as a top pain point.
