This is the first in a series of three managed cloud services articles coming over the next few weeks which explain more about what cloud services are and how you can make the move with minimum disruption.
What is a cloud Managed Services Provider (MSP) and what do they do?
An MSP, like Trilogy, will manage a customer’s IT infrastructure. It is a security consultant, systems administrator, Backup & DR and DBA expert rolled into one.
A cloud MSP is a partner which helps you migrate and adopt cloud platforms and technologies while guiding you in all aspects of your cloud journey. A cloud MSP can demonstrate all the benefits that a cloud platform can provide. It encompasses the transition from traditional managed services to cloud-based managed services.
The global cloud managed services market size is expected to reach $82.51 billion by 2025, according to a study conducted by Grand View Research. And 451 Research forecast it to be $43 billion by the end of 2018 – growing 60% faster than infrastructure-only managed services.
Cloud provides the resource which enables companies to do so much more
with their IT assets. A cloud MSP offers a one-stop shop by providing a single
support, provisioning and billing solution on a Pay as You Go basis. All IT
resources including hosting are managed by a cloud MSP.
