Managed Cloud

What is Managed Cloud?

Managed Cloud is a cloud computing service where a third-party provider such as Opus, takes responsibility for the management, security, and optimisation of cloud IT infrastructure on behalf of their client. This includes overseeing infrastructure setup, continuous performance monitoring, implementing security measures, managing backups and disaster recovery, applying updates, ensuring scalability, providing technical support, and ensuring compliance with regulations.

Managed Cloud services enable organisations to leverage cloud benefits without the burden of day-to-day management, this enables them to focus on core operations and strategic initiatives instead.
