Cloud computing is a popular and flexible method of adding capacity and functionality to a computing environment, with a worldwide market of over $1.25 trillion.
Managed cloud service providers offer you a way to modernize your infrastructure without the expense needed for purchasing and maintaining new hardware or supporting complex software solutions.
It can, however, be challenging for businesses that have little experience with cloud computing to use the resources efficiently and obtain the maximum value from their investment.
An excellent solution for this dilemma is to engage a managed service provider (MSP) to help manage the cloud environment.
Working with a reliable and experienced MSP provides companies with a number of benefits.
Now, let’s explore just a few.
Maximize Your Budget
One of the best parts of working with a managed cloud service provider is that you don’t need to be an expert in the field to receive expert service.
Maybe you don’t know what solutions are available, or maybe you don’t know where to start. But you probably know what goals you want to achieve, right?
A managed cloud service provider has the experience to understand your company’s business objectives and recommend the best solution to successfully address them.
Maybe your company wants something simple, like adding the functionality of a new Software-as-a-Service (SaaS). Or, maybe you’d be best served by migrating workloads to a Platform-as-a-service (PaaS) solution.
Whatever your goals are, managed cloud service providers can deliver the exact solution you need to maximize your budget.
Optimized Computing Environment
An MSP can also evaluate your current environment and recommend cloud options to optimize your system performance and availability.
For example, you may be able to retire legacy systems, and use more efficient solutions hosted by your cloud provider.
That means your company saves money and modernizes your computing environment at the same time when working with a managed cloud service.
Flexibility and Scalability
In addition to saving you money, working with a managed cloud service provides access to the MSP’s vast computing resources.
This enables systems to easily scale, letting you address business growth without capital expenditures on hardware.
Even further, it provides the flexibility to deploy the newest innovative solutions to meet evolving requirements. That means you compete more effectively, without needing constant upgrades.
Additional Skills and Personnel
Have you ever had in issue with your computer system, and didn’t know how to fix it or where to turn?
Who hasn’t, right?
Well, when working with a managed cloud service, you don’t need to know how to fix things all on your own. You’ll have access to your MSP’s experienced technical personnel.
Access to these resources enables you to make use of cloud services with which they have no experience without spending time and money on training in-house employees.
Small businesses present an attractive target for ransomware gangs and cybercriminals.
A successful attack can be very expensive, at best, while at worst, could spell then end for your company.
Contracting for managed security services from a trusted MSP greatly reduces your chances of being attacked and losing sensitive and valuable data.
A reliable managed cloud service provider will implement cybersecurity best practices to protect your environment.
Managed Cloud Service Providers Let You Focus On Your Business
A managed cloud service provider offers you one further bonus: the time to focus on your core business goals.
That means instead of spending time keeping your IT systems running smoothly, you do what you do best: work toward growing your business.
This is one of the most beneficial reasons to work with a managed cloud service provider. After all, your IT environment should be used as a vehicle for growth.
Reaching Out for Help
