Managed cloud services offer complete or partial management of a company’s infrastructure or cloud resources. The management responsibilities handled by the service can involve configuration, migration, maintenance, optimisation, and security. Such services allow organisations to maximise the service benefits of cloud services while saving time and money.
Organisations can adopt managed cloud services for private, public, and hybrid clouds at any point in using a cloud-based solution. Organisations may also benefit from outsourcing cloud management before they migrate to the cloud to acquire expertise in determining the best cloud resources that will suit their requirements and to make sure that configuration is completed correctly. Below are the main advantages:
Integrating cloud services
Support is a substantial benefit of managed cloud services, as in-house expertise can be costly for businesses. This is especially true of when organisations seek to create a multi-cloud or hybrid environment.
Multi-clouds work by combining cloud services from several providers (eg. Microsoft Azure and a private cloud), while hybrid clouds combine cloud and on-premises resources. Often, these deployments need more involved configuration than cloud-only and single-cloud environments.
Having experts configure setups can help businesses guarantee that any cloud-based resources they choose are connected to existing systems smoothly and seamlessly. Providers also help ensure that users can access apps and resources without issue.
Managed cloud services help firms determine the best solution to suit their workloads. Additionally, they help companies understand which pricing model is the most cost-effective for their needs and how to configure services to enjoy maximum performance while minimising running costs.
Often providers may issue performance metrics and clear reporting on existing resources with suggestions to improve current configurations.
Predictable expenses with managed cloud services
Managed cloud services offer a more predictable cost structure than in-house resources, where organisations are responsible for managing and supporting the equipment they own.
This offers firms greater flexibility for their budgets while guaranteeing that companies only ever spend what they expect each month (no unexpected server replacement costs).
