If you run any size of business then it’s important to have a reliable server to store business data, and to have that data backed up. The cloud is one of the best solutions, minimizing time, and reducing the need for extensive server space on site. Depending on the size of your business, you may not have a large IT department. Your employees may not have time to continuously manage your cloud services but it is important to stay up-to-date on maintenance and updates.
Managed cloud services are the best solution. iConnect Technologies can oversee the partial or full management of your company’s data. Managed cloud services may include migration of data from your current service, maintenance and updates, optimization of data to minimize costs, and more. Basically, a managed cloud provider, such as iConnect Technologies, will help to keep your managed cloud resources running efficiently so your company can keep your budget at reasonable levels.
Your business or company will work in a collaborative environment to maintain your managed cloud services. If you’re not familiar with the process, working with a company that’s experienced in managed cloud services will relieve some of your burden.
The process begins by evaluating your current IT infrastructure to determine what data needs to be stored, what types of applications you are using, and how you’re using them. Storage capacity and the ability to grow will also be concerns.
Managed cloud services may vary by business or company user. It’s up to you to decide how much of a role you want IT personnel to play in your managed cloud services. It’s based on a monthly service fee which is predictable and simple to add to your business budget.
Managed cloud services offers a variety of managed tasks related to IT. These can involve a variety of services, including hosting, implementation, operations management, and 24/7 help desk support in case something goes wrong. You’ll also benefit from what is called future-proofed technology. Your cloud services will always involve the latest and best technology so you don’t have to spend all your business resources in updating servers or software, as that’s already included in your cloud plan.
If your own team previously handled these services, they may have felt overloaded on top of doing all their other IT tasks. Transferring these managed cloud services to a professional cloud management provider will help to ease the burden, allowing your IT team to focus on other aspects of your business.
When we can partner together, this will give your company the ability to help achieve your business goals for accelerated growth and innovation. The process will be simplified but still stay within your budget.
We’ve assisted hundreds of other businesses by assuming managed cloud services for them, so they can focus their efforts on other aspect of their IT department and productive business goals.
