Entisys Solutions, Inc., the West Coast's #1 provider of server virtualization, desktop virtualization and storage solutions for the data center to endpoints and into the cloud, along with its Southern California division, Agile360, today announced that it has been named to CRN’s 2014 Tech Elite 250 and 2014 Solution Provider 500 lists.

For the fourth year in a row, Entisys Solutions and Agile360 were recognized by CRN’s Tech Elite 250 list for the investments that they have made in the training and education needed to earn the most technical certifications from leading technology vendors. The Solution Provider 500 list, which spans eight categories from hardware and software sales, to managed IT services, placed Entisys Solutions and Agile360 among North America’s top revenue-generating technology integrators, whose forward-thinking approach has helped them evolve and thrive in today’s cloud and services-driven era. This year, the companies ranked #253 on the Solution Provider 500 list, up from #287 in 2013.

“It is a great honor to be acknowledged again in 2014 as part of CRN’s Tech Elite 250 and Solution Provider 500 lists,” said Mike Strohl, President and CEO, Entisys Solutions and Agile360. “Entisys and Agile360 remain steadfast in our dedication to providing our clients with state-of-the-art mobility, cloud and virtualization solutions, offered by the IT industry’s premier vendors.

In compiling the Tech Elite 250 list, CRN editors worked with The Channel Company research group and a team of outside experts to define the most customer-beneficial technical certifications in the IT channel. These technical certifications have enabled solution providers to deliver the most premium products, service and support to their North American customers. Companies on the 2014 Solution Provider 500 list were ranked by revenue size, as determined by the amount of annual products and services sold over the course of 2013.
