Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) and Managed Cloud solutions replace entirely or partially, a customer’s data center infrastructure, depending on the scope of a customer’s needs. Today’s providers offer a myriad of options ranging from private hosted, public cloud and hyperscale (AWS and Azure). Most customers considering moving to the cloud want to move away from managing legacy equipment and day-to-day operations so they can focus on delivering applications. In addition, Managed Cloud services offer the ability to manage infrastructure remotely and even manage a customer’s public cloud.
If your company is shifting away from Capex to Opex model as a means of reducing overhead, the many flavors of managed cloud infrastructure can be beneficial in several ways. The ability to scale up or down or to burst is attractive to businesses with seasonality. Outsourcing infrastructure and its management frees up staff to focus on delivering applications that drive business forward.
Managed Cloud enhances an organization’s ability to adapt to new applications that run in the cloud, to manage multiple environments and to respond to demanding business lines that require applications to be up and running on short notice.
