Save Time, Money, and Headaches with Managed IT Services

Some of the most powerful value propositions are also the most straightforward. Managed as-a-service IT solutions fall squarely into this camp. They’re delivered by a managed services provider (MSP) over the internet or network connection instead of your business’ own hardware or software and deliver immediate, tangible benefits on several fronts:

  • Technology benefits, including access to the latest feature sets, improved visibility, centralized management, automatic patching and enhanced security.
  • Financial benefits, including scalability, lower total cost of ownership (TCO) and OpEx vs. CapEx advantages.
  • Labor benefits, including access to specialized talent and reduced burdens on your internal IT teams.

Let’s explore just a few examples.

Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS)

Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) delivers IT infrastructure like compute, storage and network resources on a pay-as-you-go basis. With IaaS, you can request and configure the resources you need to run your applications and IT systems while bypassing the costs and complexities of purchasing and managing physical servers and data center infrastructure. Advantages of IaaS include:

  • Increased performance and decreased capex – With IaaS, you can avoid costly upfront capital outlays to support future growth while avoiding the trap of having sunk costs in outdated infrastructure.
  • Increased scalability and flexibility – IaaS scales with your company as you grow and can also swell with your operations for seasonal- or event-based demand.
  • Increased support for disaster recovery and business continuity – Cutting-edge IaaS data centers are built with redundancy in all potential failure points — power hardware, software, network, physical security and connectivity.

Backup as a Service (BaaS)

Backup-as-a-Service (BaaS) backs up and replicates all of your data, including file systems and business applications, in a secure data center. BaaS advantages include:

  • Data loss prevention – With BaaS, you can reliably protect your data from human error, malicious actors, power surges and natural disasters, hardware theft and other risks.
  • Automatic backups on your timeframe – BaaS routines can be scheduled at times that work best for your network utilization. They also can provide real-time backup when you need it.
  • Remote access to your data – BaaS allows you to access files at any time, from any location with Internet access.

Disaster Recovery as a Service

Disaster Recovery as Service (DRaaS) provides continuous data protection (CDP) to keep your company functioning – or to restore operations – when disaster strikes. Benefits include:

  • Reduced Downtime – Meet fast recovery time and recovery point objectives.
  • Advanced Protection – Enterprise-level infrastructure and encryption security.
  • Expert Management – Rely on managed disaster failover protection and recovery.
