All of the benefits of the cloud, none of the headaches
Let our experts manage every aspects of your cloud
Cloud services deliver greater flexibility, security and storage capacity to your business. But managing a cloud in-house comes with a cost: it takes your team away from other business-critical projects, making it harder to grow your business.
With Bell Cloud Managed Services, our experts can take on every aspect of managing your cloud, including assessing applications and systems, onboarding, migrating, and ongoing monitoring, protection and optimization. We can also help to ensure your data is protected by assisting with the configuration and management of your server, backup, database and firewall.
Benefits of Bell Cloud Managed Services for Microsoft Azure
Better business continuity
Flexible data recovery
Move to the cloud with confidence
With our Network Operations Centre monitoring your systems, you can rest easy knowing your cloud data is being safely handled by our experts. We’ll also provide you with a wide range of detailed monthly reports describing everything we do to keep your data protected.
Lower your cloud costs
Our fully managed data backup and restore solution typically costs the same as or less than buying the hardware and managing it yourself. And, because our solution backs up your data incrementally, you save on storage space, data transfer costs and server load by not doing redundant backups every day.
Ensure business continuity
With continual backups and rapid restore capabilities, you get near-continuous access to your business-critical applications — minimizing the impact of system downtime.
Safeguard your business information
Because your data is backed up by incremental file changes, you can recover as much or as little as you need — from a full system restore to a specific version of a specific file. And with security scanning, you can regain visibility, reduce your attack surface and detect malware across your Microsoft Azure cloud deployments.
