Managed cloud services allow businesses to tap into the power of cloud computing without the pain of becoming an expert in everything. It starts with the simple truth that every cloud has to be managed by someone. Like your retirement savings or your car, it doesn’t manage or maintain itself. So every business faces two main options:
DIY: It can hire and train experts to perform all the complex tasks required to manage cloud infrastructure and tools and application stacks. Or it can manage and mediate among multiple providers: say, one for multi-tenant cloud infrastructure and a second for single-tenant servers or VMware in a colocation facility, and a third for support.
Employ a trusted partner: This allows companies to focus on their core business — on building great applications and other new products, and landing new customers. They can stay fast and lean, rather than having to swell payroll with additional ops engineers and system administrators and other experts to manage IT that doesn’t differentiate their company.
As cloud technology and servers have become increasingly popular across industries, companies have started migrating more frequently. While in theory cloud is already more efficient than the cost of physical server architecture and management, it can still be expensive and wasteful if you’re administering it by yourself.
Even for large corporations with hiring capacity, managing cloud services usually requires having experts in-house. If you’re looking to host a website, app, or even your company’s servers, your main concern will be ensuring your cloud architecture is always at its best.
Even for specialized services such as cloud business intelligence, which can comprise only a small part of a company’s overall services, self-management can be unfeasible. Instead of hiring a specialist to build an ecosystem for analytics and BI, companies can subscribe to services that manage cloud servers and simply take advantage of applications without the additional baggage.
For companies that must constantly deploy and modify cloud servers, having a staff member dedicated to the process means significant time and resources are focused away from the actual work. Instead, you can simply hire managed cloud services and focus on building front-end solutions while backends are built to specification and optimized for your services.
