Why You Need Cloud Management as a Service to Manage Your AWS and Azure Infrastructure

If you're like most organizations, you are using cloud services from Amazon Web Services (AWS) or Microsoft Azure or both. And if you're not already using cloud management as a service, you should be!

Your procurement model for public cloud services is on a monthly basis, maybe with some reservations, but mainly on a monthly cost model. Your cloud management approach should run in the same way. When it comes to public cloud providers, you should consider them as another type of utility, like electricity, comms or building rental.

A monthly cloud management as a service approach makes sense from both a practical and financial standpoint. You can track your usage more closely, identify and fix problems more quickly, and optimize your costs more effectively. In addition, many public cloud providers offer discounts for customers who commit to using their services on a longer basis and reserve or commit to usage levels. As a result, a monthly cloud management approach is the best way to maximize the value of your public cloud investment.


Once you make the decision to implement cloud management as a service you can take futrther advantage of the many benefits of the cloud, including reduced IT costs, increased flexibility and scalability, and improved disaster recovery. As well as improving performance while reducing costs and having a centralised dashboard to get management information about your cloud deployments. With so many providers and options to choose from, it can be difficult to know how to evaluate the options and select the best one for your business. Here are some key factors to keep in mind as you compare providers:

  • Pricing: Make sure you understand the pricing model for each provider you are considering. Some providers charge based on the number of users or devices, while others charge a fixed monthly fee. Determine which pricing model will work best for your business and then compare prices across providers.
  • Features: Another important consideration is the features offered by each provider. Make sure the cloud management platform you select includes all of the features you need, such as patch management, asset management, and compliance reporting.
  • Support: When something goes wrong with your cloud platform, you'll want to be able to get help quickly. Find out what kind of support each provider offers and whether they have 24/7 availability.

By keeping these factors in mind, you can be sure to select the best cloud management as a service solution for your business!
