Every day more and more businesses move their infrastructures to the cloud in order to reap the many benefits it provides; however migration to the cloud can come with it’s own set of challenges. While cloud providers have made the process of migrating to the cloud fairly straightforward, many businesses find it time consuming and costly when it comes to troubleshooting issues.

While many businesses understand the benefits of migrating their infrastructure and deploying their apps to the cloud, some do not realise that the majority of cloud providers do not actually provide ongoing monitoring, remediation and management services. This leaves businesses with two choices. They can either forgo hiring an engineering team, leaving their developers to monitor and run the infrastructure, which can prove counterproductive. Alternatively they can hire a system engineering team that is able to provide round the clock monitoring and infrastructure support.
