AGOURA HILLS, Calif. — Key Information Systems (KeyInfo), a leading cloud and infrastructure provider offering integrated solutions to enterprises, announced today that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has named KeyInfo to its 2017 Solution Provider 500 list. The Solution Provider 500 is CRN’s annual ranking of the largest technology integrators, solution providers and IT consultants in North America by revenue.

KeyInfo delivers long-term business value for clients by blending advanced technology services with products and resources from IBM, Cisco, HPE, NetApp and other select partners. KeyInfo recently released a brand-new object storage-as-a-service (STaaS) offering to help its enterprise clients eliminate costs associated with secondary data centers and gain the advantages of distributed, scalable storage. It provides businesses with the added advantages from data center provider Switch and storage leader Panzura for the highest levels of resiliency and reliability.

“Key Information Systems takes great pride in its customer-driven approach with clients, and ongoing third-party recognition such as this CRN award is testament to our commitment,” said Christopher Ticknor, Director of Marketing at Key Information Systems. “Our motto of ‘People wrapped around technology’ is something we take very seriously. We provide our colocation clients with superior support and service that has given us the hard-earned reputation of being one of Southern California’s elite data center, colocation and connectivity providers.”

“CRN’s Solution Provider 500 list spotlights the North American IT channel partner organizations that have earned the highest revenue over the past year, providing a valuable resource to vendors looking for top solution providers to partner with,” said Robert Faletra, CEO of The Channel Company. “The companies on this year’s list represent an incredible, combined revenue of over $318 billion, a sum that attests to their success in staying ahead of rapidly changing market demands. We extend our sincerest congratulations to each of these top-performing solution providers and look forward to their future pursuits and successes.”

The Solution Provider 500 is CRN’s predominant channel partner award list, serving as the industry standard for recognition of the most successful solution provider companies in the channel since 1995. This year, for the first time since 2010, the complete list will be published on, making it readily available to vendors seeking out top solution providers to partner with.
