What’s The Best Way To Manage A Cloud Deployment? Managing Cloud Deployments (Questions/Answers)


RMM tools are a must-have for on-premise support, right? So why don’t you have an equivalent solution for your cloud deployments?

The cloud may be a whole new frontier of computing as far as the business and consumer worlds are concerned, but that doesn’t mean that principles and strategies employed in more traditional models don’t still apply. The technology may change, but the desired outcomes often stay the same.

Namely – what can Managed Services Providers (MSPs) learn from on-premise management and subsequently apply to managing a cloud deployment for their end customers? As more and more of the business world moves from on-premise environments to cloud-based ones, should MSPs go back to the drawing board?

Of course not.

Think about it this way – you wouldn’t try to support an on-premise client without a Remote Monitoring and Management (RMM) tool, right? That’d be like trying to support your end customers while blindfolded and with both hands tied behind your back.

Without an RMM tool in place, you have no way of keeping an eye on the systems, tracking performance, identifying issues, preventing lag and failure, executing simple tasks remotely, and more. When an issue does pop up, you need the facilities offered by an RMM tool to actually do something about it. Otherwise, at best, you or one of your technicians has to make the trip in person.

Wouldn’t it be great if there were the equivalent of an RMM tool, but for cloud deployments?

What Does Remote Monitoring and Management Look Like In The Cloud?

Enter: Cloud Workspace® Management Suite (CWMS). In a nutshell, this solution is to cloud deployments as an RMM tool is to an on-premise environment. What does that mean for MSPs?

CWMS takes a vendor-agnostic approach to cloud infrastructure automation and management, allowing service providers and enterprise IT administrators who partner with CloudJumper to more easily execute a multi-cloud strategy while reducing the time and resources required to build and deploy solutions.

The advantages of workload scheduling and scaling allow service providers to drive efficiency and margin expansion at the data center layer. The heavy investment in workflow integration and management through API enhancements offers a compelling capability for IT administrators like you that are looking to unify client computing in the cloud without the limitations of onsite IT.

Further benefits include:

  • CWMS makes cloud deployment management easy by overseeing every layer of your technology stack
  • As user loads change, CWMS compensates server resources with dynamic increase/decrease
  • CWMS allows you to ensure consistency across end customers’ cloud deployments through the creation of templates
  • CWMS helps you get more out of Tier I support staff by simplifying complicated tasks like provisioning into simple steps via a one-of-a-kind wizard

That’s not to mention that CWMS fully integrates with both your front-end and your billing solution – that means you don’t have to deal with yet another superfluous billing platform. You get to keep using the programs you prefer while gaining the capability to deliver an unbeatable cloud solution for your end customers.

CWMS is the software that we use to manage our partners’ end customers’ instances of Cloud Workspace®. However, CWMS also makes it easier than ever to provision and manage your Cloud Workspace solution along with whatever you’re already delivering to your end customers – especially if you’re doing so with Azure.

CWMS – Simplifying Cloud Management In Azure

CloudJumper is excited to now offer MSPs an unlimited number of free NFR licenses of CWMS software within a single tenant Azure deployment. Following the launch of our Cloud Workspace for Azure solution, this summer promotion is in response to greater interest shown by channel members over the past year.

Case in point: according to Microsoft, RDS grew 30% faster than any other Azure service in 2018, resulting in the need for better management of these environments. This NFR channel promotion will only make it easier for MSPs to accelerate platform adoption and gain greater capability in their cloud deployments.

If you’re interested in getting experience working with our ever-evolving WaaS solutions, this is a great way to start. Using as many NFR licenses as you need, you can transition safely and simply to CWMS and gain even greater control over your end customers’ cloud deployments.

Stop struggling to properly support however many cloud deployments you’re currently trying to manage. Just as RMM tools once made on-premise management a snap, so will CWMS – but only if you get on board while this promotion lasts!
