This is a question we get asked all the time; why an MSP should purchase cloud services from us for their clients instead of using AWS or the Microsoft Cloud? Here’s the first reason… We’ve been in the IT industry for over 30 years and in the cloud space for over 20, and we were a very successful MSP in the past. So, we understand what it takes to be a successful MSP in the cloud space.
We know that…
You need to help your customers fast, and we’re always here to help you quickly. Some cloud providers are so large that when you contact them, you could be hanging in level-one support for a week before your issue is escalated. In the meantime, you or your customers are left without the vital cloud solutions you require.
Instead of going through multiple levels of support like you will with an Amazon or Microsoft, you’ll get the help you need right away so you won’t have to make your customers wait. You’ll get personalized service.
With the dependence businesses have on the Cloud today, you need the confidence knowing that your Cloud Service Provider will genuinely be there for you and provide technical support when you need it.
You may not have the resources available with your current staff to implement a cloud solution. So, we’re here to assist. We can provide assistance with things like cloud migrations. You need a Cloud Service Provider that you can trust will jump in and handle any issues with focus, efficiency, and determination to make things right.
Look around the Cloud community right now. There are many cashing in on the growing market we play in. Mergers, acquisitions and consolidations are happening every day. We believe the right Cloud Partner is someone who was there in the beginning, will work with you now, and promises to be right beside you.
You require unparalleled pricing, and the flexibility to choose different partnership models. Cloud services don’t have to be expensive when used correctly, and can actually help your customers save money over traditional IT solutions. You can pick and choose the cloud services you provide to them, such as:
You want to be seen as an expert to your customers, so we provide the marketing collateral to help you. We offer cloud-based marketing materials. This way, you can market your expertise, value-added services and excellent customer service. Your differentiator to your customers will be your technical expertise and excellent customer service.
Your customers’ needs determine which cloud services to provide. This may change, and with CPU, you will always have the flexibility to provide exactly what your customers need. We have the hosting expertise you require, and we won’t take over your customer accounts (like some of the big cloud providers do).
You require a fast time to market, and you’ll have this with a reliable Cloud Service Partner like CPU. We will take on the costs of building your infrastructure. And we’ll fix any problems if there’s an outage.
Compliance is essential. CPU complies With ISO 27001, ISO 9001, SSAE16, SOC1-Type II, and SOC2-Type II Standards. We are also validated for certifications like HIPAA and PCI. Compliance with each of these standards requires us to systematically address information security issues using a risk-based approach to select proper controls. These standards enforce (and assure) a robust Information Security Management System (ISMS).
Your clients may include healthcare organizations, so your MSP business must also be HIPAA compliant. The same goes for your CSP. As a business associate, we meet this requirement as well; and the same goes for PCI DSS compliance.
You rely on the replication of data. CPU can replicate data in 5 separate data centers. With replication, you have identical copies of information on multiple servers and across more than one data center. Your clients will experience high throughput, consistency, reliability, low latency and secure data replication. Don’t settle for a CSP with only 2 or 3 Data Centers; 5 is what you should expect today and CPU provides this.
We also offer 100’s of Terabytes of Storage & 5,000 Virtual Cloud Servers for MSPs per rack. This enables file systems, storage technologies, and big data that so many businesses require today.
And you’ll have Geo-Tracking if you need more bandwidth. Your clients need this to locate their managed mobile devices via your Mobile Device Management solution. It uses a combination of GPS, Wi-Fi and GSM to obtain the most accurate location of the device.
Again, we understand what you need because we’ve been there. Need answers to other questions about the Cloud? Visit us at www.cloudservicesformsps.com.
