IT managers have a lot of responsibilities that demand their constant attention. Whether the business is large or small, the demand for management of IT services is never-ending.
To keep up with all of the demands of keeping an IT infrastructure running smoothly, IT managers need to have plenty of skilled labor resources to run maintenance tasks and handle troubleshooting for their infrastructure.
However, skilled, professional IT resources tend to be costly to maintain. This leads to many late hours and a lot of lost sleep for IT managers trying to make up for the shortfall in resources with their own time.
One way that IT managers can get the skilled resources they need to help maximize the effectiveness, usability, and security of their infrastructure is to use a hosted cloud service provider for their infrastructure needs.
Benefits of Using Skilled Experts on the Cloud
The problem with most IT infrastructure management tasks is that they rarely do much to improve the overall performance of the business, but if they’re neglected, the business can suffer. Because of this, IT managers often spend too much of their time on basic maintenance tasks rather than creating innovations that drive success for the business.
Using a cloud service provider that offers the support of expert staff can help eliminate the need for IT managers to spend excessive amounts of time on maintaining their business infrastructure.
Additionally, when a problem such as a system glitch occurs, the cloud provider’s expert team can resolve the issue, often before the IT manager is even aware the issue existed. Many cloud provider teams have years of experience in operating IT infrastructures and finding the best solution to an issue.
Perhaps best of all is that if one of a cloud service provider’s other clients runs into an issue, the cloud provider’s team can enact a solution for that issue for all of their other cloud users.
For example, WHOA.com frequently adds new rules to its firewalls for blocking new threat signals once they’ve been discovered and applies these protections (and others) to every cloud environment WHOA manages.
This helps to reduce your own risk of exposure to a specific threat since new protections will be in place to deal with it as soon as the cloud provider has encountered it on any of their cloud environments.
Hiring a hosted cloud service gives IT managers more than just access to a dedicated team of IT experts. With the right cloud, IT managers also get access to best-in-class technologies for their infrastructure, multi-layered security for their most sensitive data, and vastly improved redundancy for their mission-critical data.
All of these other features, combined with the service of a dedicated team of experts, gives IT managers invaluable peace of mind so they can focus on driving results for the business. Partnering with a cloud provider who has the right technology, security, and talent can empower a business’ IT managers to do more with what they have.
