Global availability, performance increases in the latest hardware, and the powers of cloud computing all have significant potential to optimize your IT infrastructure. However, managing the performance of your infrastructure takes valuable time away from the strategic development initiatives of your IT staff. For many enterprises, managed service providers are the right answer to maintaining an optimal environment for their mission critical data and applications.
A managed service provider should do more than manage servers, storage and bandwidth. The right partner provides full administration, migration services and uncovers the perfect balance for managing the network, databases, security, storage, and applications. Unburdened with these daily tasks, IT managers can help the CIO/CTO with more strategic initiatives to grow the business – driving efficiency and cost savings.
