The Top 250 Public Cloud MSPs, on average, expect to generate $29.2 million in public cloud revenues for 2020, up 38 percent from 2019, ChannelE2E's annual research revealed today.

The list and associated research identify and honor the top managed IT service providers (MSPs) that support customers on Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft Azure, Google Cloud Platform (GCP), VMware Cloud on AWS, Oracle Cloud, IBM Cloud and more.

The Top 250 Public Cloud MSPs research and rankings are based on ChannelE2E’s 2020 readership survey combined with the digital media site’s global editorial coverage of managed cloud services. The third-annual list has expanded from 2019 (200 honorees) and 2018 (100 honorees) amid ChannelE2E’s continued readership growth, and the growing market demand for cloud-focused MSPs.
