Key outcomes from DSP Azure managed service

A quality service alongside substantial cost savings

Managing your infrastructure can be a serious drain on time and money with resources that could be invested elsewhere. 

We'll maintain your Azure environments to the highest standard, keeping it fully accessible and highly available. Plus, our customers can expect to reduce operational costs by up to 70% - a huge cost saving compared to in-house resources.

In addition to providing 24/7 support, our specialists continuously manage your costs and monitor your usage to ensure everything is rightsized and optimised.

A service built around your individual requirements

Our managed services can be scaled up or down, depending on your technical resources and desired level of control, but typically our services can be broken down like this:

  1.  A light touch: We manage computing, networking and storage but applications, middleware, operating systems and VMs sit with you. 
  2. A halfway house: Taking care of all your environment except applications and middleware.
  3. A full-service: We'll take care of everything. 

Built-in disaster recovery for if the worst happens

Our disaster recovery offers the ultimate safety net for minimising downtime and data loss in the event of a disaster.

With rigorous back-up systems ensuring three separate locations for your data, our teams are ready at a moment’s notice, whenever disaster strikes, to get your critical applications back online if there’s a problem.
