What is Managed Cloud?
Managed cloud is a way of allowing organisations to benefit from cloud technology without the complexity of managing it. Outsourcing cloud requirements helps businesses harness the power of the cloud while focusing on innovation and core business operations as they can literally offload the operational and management aspects of running their IT to us.
Managed Cloud looks at these crucial components;
- Infrastructure Management: We oversee the configuration, provisioning, and maintenance of cloud infrastructure, including virtual machines, storage, and networking components, ensuring that resources are properly allocated, scaled, and optimised.
- Security and Compliance: Enhanced security by implementing best practices, firewalls, encryption, access controls, and regular security audits. We help organisations maintain compliance with industry-specific regulations and data protection standards.
- Monitoring and Performance Optimisation: We continuously monitor the cloud environment for performance issues, anomalies, and potential bottlenecks, proactively addressing these concerns to ensure optimal performance and minimise downtime.
- Backup and Disaster Recovery: We offer backup and disaster recovery solutions to ensure data redundancy and rapid recovery in case of data loss or system failures.
- Cost Management: We help you to control cloud costs by offering predictable transparent billing, and offering insights into cost-saving strategies.
- Scaling and Elasticity: We are able to scale cloud resources up or down to meet fluctuating demand. This elasticity is essential for businesses experiencing variable workloads.
- Dedicated Support: 24/7 support for complete peace of mind.
Benefits of Managed Cloud for organisations:
- Focus on Core Business: By outsourcing the operational and management tasks of their cloud infrastructure, organisations can concentrate on their core business activities, strategic goals, and innovation, rather than IT maintenance.
- Expertise and Access to Talent: We employ skilled professionals with expertise in various cloud platforms and services. This expertise is accessible without the need to hire and train an in-house team.
- Enhanced Security: We prioritise cybersecurity, reducing the risk of data breaches and other security incidents. We stay updated on evolving threats and technologies to keep cloud environments secure.
- Increased Uptime and Reliability: Proactive monitoring and maintenance help prevent downtime, ensuring that cloud systems and services are available when needed, which is vital for business continuity.
- Cost Efficiency: Managed cloud eliminates the need for large upfront capital expenditures and reduces the total cost of ownership.
- Strategic Planning: We align cloud strategies with business objectives. We can provide insights and recommendations for cloud investments that support long-term success.
- Regulatory Compliance: We help ensure that organisations adhere to industry-specific regulations and data protection standards, reducing the risk of non-compliance penalties.
