The Benefits of Partnering with an AWS Managed Service Provider

If you don't have the resources in-house to manage AWS then a partner with the right experience can help you look after your AWS deployments. That's where partnering with an AWS Managed Service Provider (MSP) is a good option to bolt this capability into your existing team.

By stepping back from the management and optimisation of AWS infrastructure and using a third party, your team can concentrate on adding value for customers while still enjoying the advantages of the cloud. In this blog post, we will delve into the detailed benefits of teaming up with an AWS MSP.

CloudOps our cloud management platform provides monitoring and we can use this to make recommendations for improvements, such as optimising instance types, storage configurations, and tuning your deployment.

  3. Reduced Operational Overhead - Managing AWS infrastructure can be a time-consuming and resource-intensive task. By partnering with an IG CloudOps, you can offload many of the operational tasks associated with managing AWS infrastructure. This frees up internal resources to focus on other business-critical initiatives. Read our case study for Adaptive where over 18 developer days and 45k of staff cost were saved

IG CloudOps is poised to assist you in devising and implementing top-tier security practices, ensuring the protection of your data and infrastructure against potential threats. We can also help ensure that AWS environments are compliant with industry regulations and standards, by running security audits and integrated PEN testing.

  5. Cost Savings - We can help you optimise your AWS infrastructure for cost-effectiveness. By monitoring usage and recommending appropriate instance types, storage options, and other AWS services, we can help you reduce your cloud spend. Additionally, partnering with us can be more cost-effective than building and maintaining an internal team of AWS experts-we can extend your in-house team with software and support as required.
