Raleigh, N.C., February 15, 2023 — RapidScale, a Cox Business company, announced this week that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has named RapidScale to its Managed Service Provider (MSP) 500 list in the Elite 150 category for 2023.

MSPs have become a vital part of the success of businesses worldwide. MSPs not only empower organizations to leverage intricate technologies but also help them keep a strict focus on their core business goals without straining their budgets.
The annual MSP 500 list is divided into three sections: the MSP Pioneer 250, recognizing companies with business models weighted toward managed services and largely focused on the SMB market; the MSP Elite 150, recognizing large, data center-focused MSPs with a strong mix of on- and off-premises services; and the Managed Security 100, recognizing MSPs focused primarily on off-premises and cloud-based security services.
