If you wonder, "Do I need a managed cloud solution?" Then ask yourself these questions;


  1. Are you a small or medium-sized (SME) business with ambitions to grow?
  2. Are you a large enterprise business with technical debt and a significant refresh outlay coming?
  3. Do you need to leverage technology to grow your business, manage customers, and deliver services?
  4. Do you have a growing number of employees?
  5. Do you feel like you could benefit from expert IT consultancy at your disposal?
  6. Do you worry about data security and potentially (revenue-impacting) downtime due to technical issues?

If it's yes to ANY of those, then moving towards a managed cloud solution could be the most rewarding thing you can do this year!

If you also recognise any of the issues below too, then it is 100% the right time for you to consider moving to a managed cloud services solution.


"Not again!" recurring IT issues

If your business is suffering recurring IT issues that take time to fix, and there are frequent periods of unexpected downtime that no one can explain, alarm bells should be ringing. A good managed services provider (MSP) will have all the latest tools and technologies to identify issues before they become a problem. They will be able to detect and solve problems (usually) before you’ve noticed and prevent them from happening again. 


"It’s with IT…." support issues take time

Whether it's a user error or a bug in the system, if something goes wrong, you want the problem addressed quickly. If your IT provider’s response time is slow, the downtime is wasting your time and money. Once you have logged an IT support request, a qualified Managed Service Provider (MSP) will respond to you quickly, providing clear timelines for a resolution and a clear action plan.


Working 9 to 5

Although you don’t work around clock, your infrastructure and your MSP do. A reliable MSP will have a solid monitoring solution in place, able to cope with any unwelcome surprises that may pop up at any time of the day or night before you’ve even noticed anything is wrong. System monitoring is the core of any good MSP as it provides a visual overview of the infrastructure and alerts staff to emerging issues; if that happens to be outside of support hours, then alerts get directed to on-call staff.


The dog ate my work?

Data is the core resource of any business. Few companies can function without their data or systems. Data backup is a good start, but what if the systems that you need them to work on are also down? A good Managed Service Provider will find out how long you can be without your critical systems and data. Then create a disaster recovery plan to make sure they can be restored and working before it gets critical. If settling for less than this level of service, you need to ask yourself whether you are adequately protected.


Switch it off and on again

The bigger your business gets, the more complex your IT needs become and your reliance on technology to work the first time, every time. It’s not unusual for a business to quickly outgrow the systems' capabilities and possibly the IT staff managing them.

For some businesses, this can restrict further growth by reducing productivity due to disruption caused by system failures, capacity issues or inefficiency. A professional Managed Service Provider will be able to provide you with the IT support you need as well as guidance to make sure your IT is working as hard as you are.


Managed Cloud Services are a range of services delivered by a Managed Services Provider, MSP (such as HAYNE.cloud).

Instead of you working directly with a cloud provider such as Microsoft Azure or Amazon Web Services, the MSP works on your behalf and 'manages' your cloud infrastructure for you. The MSP 'manages' your 'cloud'. An MSP is essentially the expert trusted partner, who knows the cloud platform, is trained on the cloud platform and can help you to maximise the cloud platform for your business. So instead of you having to be a cloud expert and know when to upgrade, what products to use, what to back up and when - the MSP does all of this for you.

An MSP is an extension of your IT department by managing, monitoring and keeping your cloud infrastructure safe, secure, running and up-to-date. An MSP provides cloud expertise, tools, and processes that most businesses can’t match on their own.

An MSP level of service varies based on your business structure and requirements. An MSP can be your entire IT department, running your entire cloud infrastructure, essentially becoming your external IT department. Alternatively, they could work with an internal IT specialist/team to deliver extra cloud expertise. Effectively, an MSP brings additional cloud support, which means you can focus on your business, or your IT specialist/team can focus on innovation instead of fire-fighting, handling back-ups or administering updates.

Managed Cloud Solutions/services are one of the leading ways businesses run their Cloud IT infrastructure, as it ensures high levels of stability and security while reducing administrative overhead. Companies can benefit from the expertise of an experienced cloud technician, without the high salary cost.

An MSP is the IT department you would build yourself if you had the resources, time and inclination to do it. Few companies have the resources and expertise to create a world-class IT department. This is why managed cloud service providers exist, and due to the growth in cloud solutions, it is becoming the defacto choice.



Managed cloud infrastructure services provide managed IT services across an entire infrastructure, including management of communication systems, databases, data centres and cloud infrastructure (IaaS). Managed cloud infrastructure providers often employ programmers, enterprise architects, and other highly specialised IT professionals.


HAYNE.cloud is built on and supported by Microsoft Azure. Providing you with peace of mind that your cloud solutions, big or small, are supported by Microsoft's extensive infrastructure and our Microsoft-certified technical experts and technicians.
