The Silicon Review
Today’s businesses run on data and lots of it. However, managing all that information can be tricky, especially with security threats, downtime, and system glitches in the mix. On-premises solutions are prone to such pitfalls, costing companies an untold fortune in revenue and lost productivity. That’s where cloud managed service providers come in. In a nutshell, cloud managed services is the practice of outsourcing IT management for cloud-based services. These services may include, but are not limited to, centralized network solutions, disaster recovery, virtualization, and around-the-clock security. And they may be performed by professionals certified to support a specific platform for example, Azure Managed Services Providers, AWS Managed Services Partners, or Google Cloud Partners. Cloud managed service companies watch over your network day and night to keep things running smoothly. In fact, many providers guarantee 99 percent uptime. By maintaining full control of your network, your provider can see problems as they occur and make repairs remotely. This consistent service helps you deliver a better experience to your customers.
