Cloud Managed Services

7 Benefits of Cloud Managed Services

Managing costs and having the flexibility to adapt quickly are two essentials for successful business operations. Whether your business has 20 employees running applications on virtual servers or 20,000, a cloud managed services provider can support your business with extensive knowledge to help you cost-effectively manage your environment. Gibraltar Solutions specializes in IT. This means we can ensure that your cloud deployment, hosting, and data storage operate efficiently and securely. Cloud managed services deliver agile and scalable access to powerful computing resources while helping you choose the proper solution that aligns with your business goals.

Here are the seven benefits of Cloud Managed Services:

1. Centralized Control

Employee productivity and visibility into all parts of the business is something every CEO aims for. Gibraltar Solutions manages all applications and servers within a central data center, giving you visibility into all aspects of your business while reducing your IT team’s responsibilities and allowing remote access employees to access apps and data easily from one centralized location.

2. Reduced Costs

Cloud managed services save your company on high infrastructure costs by storing data in a state-of-the-art facility at a fraction of the cost. These services also have fixed monthly rates that can scale up or down at any time to meet your specific needs. Your company will save money on infrastructure maintenance, utility bills, and all other costs of keeping servers operational on-premises.

3. Scalability

Changes happen throughout the year, and it can be challenging to manage unexpected costs in your infrastructure if you have a sudden increase or decrease in business or the number of employees. By partnering with a managed services provider like Gibraltar Solutions, you can scale your cloud infrastructure services at any time without investing in more servers or having to pay for additional infrastructure. Cloud services can be adjusted easily at much lower, flat rates.

4. Backup and Disaster Recovery

Businesses today must be concerned more than ever when it comes to cybersecurity. Cybercrime has evolved to be more effective and organized than ever before, and it is no longer a question of if your company will be attacked but when. With a managed cloud services partner, in the case of a cybersecurity breach or ransomware attack, you can feel reassured knowing you would be able to restore your data from a backup in the cloud without needing to worry about paying millions of dollars in ransom or lose valuable information. Having your data backed up to the cloud can be vital in keeping your business running despite any unforeseen issues.

5. Uptime

Keeping your business up is the core responsibility of every IT team. When your business isn’t running, your employees can’t work, and it can cost your company huge losses. Sometimes, unexpected errors can cause network outages—either an incorrectly implemented patch or a local power outage. The last thing your company should have to worry about is dedicating your resources to network monitoring. With Gibraltar Solutions’ managed cloud, you no longer need to waste your IT department’s valuable time making sure the network stays up. With 24/7 service, you can rest assured that your company will have optimal uptime with managed cloud services.

6. Faster response times

A managed cloud services provider allows you to backup and restore data and provides you with greater visibility into everything that goes on within your network. Gibraltar’s managed cloud services team can quickly deal with cyber security threats with rapid detection and response. Not only does a managed services provider help to monitor security threats, but they can also deal with other issues within your network, such as unpredicted service disruptions, poor application performance and compliance issues. Gibraltar’s managed cloud services team takes care of monitoring the network so your IT team can focus on more critical projects.

7. Keeping up with Competition

The last but perhaps the most important benefit of cloud managed services is that migrating to the cloud allows businesses to adapt quickly to changes in the industry. When you operate your business in the cloud with a managed cloud services provider like Gibraltar Solutions, your business operations become more agile. This allows your business to adapt to economic, logistical, and social changes in the industry (such as the Covid-19 Pandemic) and keep up with competitors.
