What is Managed Cloud?

What is Managed Cloud?

Although cloud can be very intuitive and simple to configure, for many businesses without an in-house IT team skilled in cloud service delivery, configuring and managing your cloud environment can still be a complex task.

Pulsant’s Managed Cloud service takes on the management of your cloud environment, helping you with all stages of the process, across:

• Designing your cloud environment
• Planning your cloud environment and migration plan
• Moving your services to your new cloud environment
• Ongoing management and monitoring of your cloud environment
• Securing your cloud environment
• Ensuring your cloud environment is as performant as it can be

Using a trusted Managed Cloud provider takes away the worry of keeping your cloud environment running as efficiently as possible; ensuring that any capacity issues, bandwidth needs and potential cyber threats are monitored and dealt with quickly and proactively.

Without a managed cloud service, organisations need to manage their own billing, cloud design, configuration, storage and networking requirements. This in addition to, proactively monitoring the risk of cyber-attacks and ongoing maintenance can be a big task for existing IT teams to take on, so many look for a cloud provider like Pulsant to support them with their hybrid cloud environments.

Why use a Managed Cloud service?
Cloud can seem easy. Sure, for simple applications that are ‘cloud ready’, moving to a public cloud environment can be straightforward.

But for enterprise IT environments, with a mix of services spread across public cloud environments, SaaS solutions and in-house IT, mixed with legacy applications that aren’t cloud-ready, moving to the cloud can quickly become complex.

That’s why Pulsant’s Managed Cloud service takes the pain out of the entire process. Our teams can walk you through the steps, from design and planning, through to migration and ongoing support and monitoring of your cloud environment.

Do I need a Managed Cloud service?
Many of our clients who we deliver Managed Cloud services for still retain their in-house IT teams to deliver frontline support or strategic IT projects. However, many organisations don’t have IT professionals in-house who have the experience and training to configure and deliver many of the industry-leading cloud services, and instead choose to work with technology partners like Pulsant to fill in any IT skills gaps when it comes to cloud.
