What is a managed service provider?

A managed service provider is a third-party organisation that can manage your IT environment, or aspects of your IT infrastructure, on your behalf. By outsourcing your IT infrastructure to a managed service provider like Macquarie Cloud Services, you can free up your internal IT team to focus on other valuable tasks. Your provider should also be able to offer support for all aspects of your IT infrastructure including hardware maintenance and upgrades, software updates, data backup/restoration services and network security.

By constantly monitoring your systems and ensuring they’re running smoothly, your managed service provider should also deliver essential efficiencies and cost savings – keeping your IT secure, reliable and operational around the clock.

Enjoy economies of scale without detracting from your core offer.

    Time with customers.

    The days of spending time building architectures for customers seem to be dwindling as current assets reach end of life and so time and resource spent in house.

    Adding Value.

    Working direct with hyperscalers leaves you exposed and unable to offer the value add services your customers are accustomed to.
