AWS Cloud Managed Services: Your Options Explained

In this blog post, we will discuss AWS managed services (AMS). We will explain the benefits of AMS and its target market and how you can get an equivalent service when you are not an enterprise with a multi-million dollar IT budget.

What is AWS Managed Services (AMS)?

AWS Managed Services (AMS) is an AWS cloud service that helps businesses automate many of the manual tasks associated with running cloud infrastructure. AWS Managed Services includes a wide range of features and services, from provisioning and patching to security and monitoring. AWS Managed Services is designed to be highly scalable and flexible so that it can easily adapt to the changing needs of your business. AWS Managed Services is an ideal solution for businesses that want to focus on their core business, without having to worry about the complexities of managing cloud infrastructure.

With AWS Cloud Managed Services, businesses can now free up valuable resources and time so that they can focus on innovating and growing their business. The only problem is the price tag, as it's aimed at large-scale users of the AWS cloud with large IT departments and significant spending each month. Later in the article, we will look at how CloudOps can achieve the same level of operational support but at a price point for businesses of all sizes.


What are the objectives of AWS Cloud Managed Services?

AWS Cloud Managed Services is an AWS service that offers AWS customers a range of benefits including:

  • Monitoring & Observability
  • Configuration, Compliance and Auditing
  • Centralised Operations Management
  • Enterprise Governance & Controls

AWS Managed Services also offers AWS customers an AWS Support team that is available 24/7 to provide AWS customer support.

All of these areas would benefit your business and help provide a cloud service that is secure, available, resilient and compliant so why wouldn't you up want an equivalent service at a price point your business can justify?

This is where CloudOps comes in.

How does CloudOps achieve this for your business?

CloudOps provides unified cloud management and is plug-and-play with AWS and Azure. It provides all the elements that AWS Cloud Managed Services from Amazon provides.

  • Monitoring & Observability - Full health monitoring filtered for your regions/services. Including Kubernetes and EC2 monitoring and performance monitoring
  • Configuration, Compliance and Auditing - Licence and risk registers for auditing and handling short and long-term concerns
  • Centralised Operations Management - Single pane of glass dashboards for monitoring your deployments across cloud providers/regions
  • Enterprise Governance & Controls - Security auditing to best practice, including PEN testing
  • Cost Control - Cost monitoring and Analysis, using machine learning and AI to recommend configuration changes to balance cost/performance
  • Auto Scaling - Automatic scaling of resources up and down based on demand
  • 24/7 Assisted support - 24/7 incident dashboard and out of hours telephone support
  • Optional Support & Advisory services bolt-on - So you can get the AWS expert advice when you need it

CloudOps can help your team implement a no operations (NoOps) approach. If you want to find out more about this, then read our article about CloudOps and NoOps here.
