IT news and analysis outlet CRN recently released its 2020 Solution Provider 500, a ranking of the largest solution providers by revenue in North America. The list is made up of established and emerging vendors. Because 500 is a large number of providers to look through, CRN also offers lists of the top 25 solution providers, as well as a list of newcomers. Though the Solution Provider 500 is aimed at highlighting software vendors based on their profits, Solutions Review is most interested in highlighting the vendors that offer unique products and platforms for enterprise organizations. As such, we’ve read through CRN’s complete rankings, available here, to analyze the trending DRaaS companies we think matter most. For an even deeper breakdown of advanced DRaaS software, tools, vendors, and platforms, consult our popular Buyer’s Guide.
