Your Business: Key Components Of Managed Cloud Services

What’s at stake with managed cloud services?

To understand that, you really have to know about the cloud revolution and how it happened.

Essentially, as soon as people figured out that software companies could provide services through the Internet instead of selling software in a box, the cloud took off quickly, allowing for the subscription models and elastic service choices that power today’s business world.

Today’s cloud services market is a complex ecosystem with lots of on-demand tools and options for clients. In fact, the whole thing can be pretty overwhelming without a specialized knowledge of how all of the moving parts (i.e. vendors and customers) work.

At RCOR, we operate comprehensive managed cloud services that set our clients on the right path, and keep those types of software working for them in an optimized way, or as techies would say, close to a desired state.

Cost Control

One element of this is cost control. Various on-demand cloud service providers have their own service level agreements with different cost models. A company that exceeds a cloud threshold for one service or another will suddenly get a larger bill. It’s hard to keep on top of all of this, and that is one component of what we do for our clients. With our specialized cost control methods, they feel confident they are utilizing services in the right way.

Uptime

Uptime is the holy grail of the network administrator’s journey through an often challenging terrain, a potentially bewildering and discouraging set of circumstances related to unplanned outages, lack of service and crashes in real time.

By sustaining maximum uptime, we help businesses to recoup their investment in their IT systems, and operate confidently with fewer distractions and obstacles. This makes a difference in the  operational big picture and the bottom line, too.

Migration

Now, let’s talk a little bit about migration. Legacy systems have to be migrated to newer systems in a very particular way.

If there is not the right workload lifting system in place for migration, a change might require a lot of labor-intensive data entry. For many companies, that’s just not viable.

Our migration services offer companies the ability to port operations to Office 365 in a way that makes sense for your particular firm.

All of this helps to support our customers in practical ways that lead to long term success in their fields and markets. Ask us about how to “win at the cloud” and how we set you up for success.
