However, with numerous providers claiming expertise, it's crucial to assess them based on specific factors that go beyond just having a team of experts.

In this blog, we'll explore the essential considerations when selecting an AWS managed service provider and highlight our own capabilities.

  1. Comprehensive Solutions Beyond People

While a team of certified AWS experts is vital, the best AWS MSPs offer more than just skilled personnel. They provide a wide range of comprehensive solutions, including proactive monitoring, security management, automation, and 24/7 support. IG CloudOps excels in this aspect, offering an array of services tailored to each client's unique needs. Our holistic approach ensures that your cloud environment is not only well-managed but also optimised for peak performance.

  1. Multi-Cloud Expertise

A provider that can manage numerous cloud platforms is advantageous in today's dynamic cloud landscape. Although AWS is a top cloud service provider, businesses may profit from a multi-cloud strategy to capitalise on the strengths of different providers. In this aspect, IG CloudOps stands out since they have competence across several cloud environments, including Microsoft Azure and Google Cloud Platform as well as AWS. Because of their adaptability, they can provide unbiased advice and tailor solutions to your specific business needs.

  1. Proven Track Record and Partner Credentials

When choosing an AWS MSP, a proven track record of success is paramount. A reputable provider should demonstrate a history of successful cloud migrations, optimization, and cost savings. Additionally, they should have strong partner credentials, ensuring they have direct access to the latest AWS tools, resources, and updates. IG CloudOps shines in this area, with a long list of satisfied clients, testimonials, and success stories that highlight their expertise in delivering results.

  1. Scalability and Flexibility

As your company expands, so must your cloud infrastructure. An excellent AWS managed service partner should be adaptable enough to meet your changing needs. Scalability is important to IG CloudOps, and we can quickly adapt as required. We have the experience to ensure a smooth transition, whether it's dealing with higher workloads, integrating new apps, or designing complicated architectures.

The technology landscape is ever-evolving, and a forward-thinking AWS MSP should continuously innovate to stay ahead of the curve. IG CloudOps invests in research and development, staying up-to-date with the latest AWS services and trends. Our commitment to continuous improvement ensures that your cloud environment remains optimized and secure with the most cutting-edge solutions available.


Selecting the right AWS Managed Service Provider is a strategic decision that can significantly impact your cloud journey's success. Beyond a team of experts, it's essential to assess factors like multi-cloud expertise, a proven track record, partner credentials, scalability, and innovation.
