Why You Need A Cloud Managed Services Provider

Cloud adoption is growing but having an effective presence on the cloud requires more than just using it. Per Amazon’s Cloud Adoption Framework, companies would need to acquire about 30 additional skills to operate effectively in the cloud. Most companies don’t have the resources to staff up for these skills. Instead, finding a managed service provider is a simple way for companies to build those skill sets instantly by hiring cloud experts. In order to offer the most optimized cloud experience for our customers, we’ve put together a multi-pronged product offering known as Cloud OpsPilot.

How our Managed Service Provider Offering is Different

All managed service providers offer 24/7 support and responsiveness, but we actually go above and beyond that with ongoing improvements to the cloud environment. So in addition to reactive response to incidents, we’re proactive about reshaping your environment over time and taking advantage of the latest cloud advancements.

The reason for this is that our Cloud OpsPilot offering consists of three distinct pieces that meets your cloud needs cohesively. The Ops piece is the core of emergency response, fixing things that break. Meanwhile the Pilot piece offers progressive improvement, helping customers evolve into Cloud Native users. Finally, we have Optimizer, which is centered around helping customers find the best way to spend money on Amazon to optimize the value of how they’re running their services in the cloud.

We feel this distinction is important, and we believe this is one of the many reasons we were identified as a challenger on the 2018 Gartner Magic Quadrant for Public Cloud Infrastructure Managed Service Providers, Worldwide.
