Is it time you look for a Cloud Solution? It seems like that’s the question many businesses are asking themselves this year. If the answer is yes, then you’re going to need to ask a lot more questions before you can get started. Will you need to hire new IT staff? Can the business afford to do this itself? Even if your business can afford to do this, will it be the most cost effective and efficient solution? Don’t get stressed worrying about moving to the Cloud. Managed Service Providers (MSP’s) like Outer Edge Technology can simplify the process. Taking businesses to the cloud is what we do, and all we do. Here are the 5 ways Managed Service Providers can reduce complexity and cost from moving to the cloud.
- Unbiased Cloud Options
If you do a web search for Cloud Computing, you will be overwhelmed with the amount of options that exist. Each player in the game says that they have the best solution for your business. Many times this is not true. The main reason being that many companies offering Managed Services have allegiances with particular cloud providers. This can lead to a biased list of options for your business, which might not be the best overall fit. Unlike other MSP’s Outer Edge Technology specializes in Private Cloud Hosting, Microsoft Azure, Amazon Web Services, and are continuing to expand our options. We realize that one size doesn’t fit all, and use multiple technologies together to help create the best environment for your business needs.
- Tailored solutions
Each business is unique much like an individual person. Each business has its own strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats. Much like a doctor prescribing the best medicine to their patients. Outer Edge Technology offers individual tailored cloud solutions to our clients. We listen and ask the right questions to truly understand the situation your business is facing. This is vital to a successful cloud implementation. Nobody wants to be misdiagnosed, or grouped together for convenience. Being diagnosed by an MSP and finding the right tailored solution is a great way at reducing cost and complexity.
- True Experts in Cloud Infrastructure
Now that you have some cloud options in mind, it is time to think about who will be building and maintaining the chosen solution. Does your company have CCIE Cisco engineers, Master DBA’s, or Senior System Administrators? Many companies aren’t going to have these highly specialized individuals as full time employees, as they tend to charge extremely high hourly rates. At most, companies typically have some mid level engineers, who will not have the same expertise. Outer Edge Technology has all of these experts with decades of experience in building, hosting, and maintaining business critical applications. Having expert knowledge is crucial to our process, as one small mistake can create extensive problems.
- Security and Compliancy
Many industries such as the Financial, Manufacturing, or Life Sciences, have to be compliant with regulations. Application integrators are not going to be compliant with SOC 2, or add the value of a true infrastructure engineer. Outer Edge Technology holds numerous certifications including its SOC 2 type 2. When is comes to security and compliancy, don’t let your business take the risk. We are experts who solve complex infrastructure issues regularly, for companies who are required to have the utmost security and compliancy.
- Value Added Support
What level of support does your business require? MSP’s such as Outer Edge Technology can speak with you directly. No endless emails, no wait time, and no dial tones. We understand how frustrating getting someone on the phone can be, and that’s why we are always available. Our clients treat us as an extension of their IT team, and can always get in touch. If your business is just moving to the cloud, then having the right support is going to be necessary for success. Many MSP’s offer support but at a high cost. At Outer Edge Technology our support is included and we treat every problem as a priority.
Looking to move to the Cloud? Don’t go through the struggle on your own. MSP’s like Outer Edge Technology can reduce the complexity and cost from your businesses situation. Whether you want to start small or go all out with your cloud options, an MSP can help.
