Memset Moves Into Managed Services Market

Memset has today announced it has launched a new business division, Memset Managed Services (MMS) to help the company address the increasing bespoke nature of public sector accounts and to add further value to their award-winning commodity Infrastructure-As-A-Service (IaaS) solutions.

Cloud providers are increasingly recognising the need to provide customised solutions as well as standard service-level agreement (SLAs) offerings. This flexible business model was a natural progression for Memset who is looking to draw enterprise and government customers by adding value further up the stack.

Kate Craig-Wood, Memset’s MD explained: “Memset provides one of the most capable and mature cloud platforms in the market today, and with the increasing number of customer’s looking for bespoke IT solutions and more expertise in association to our hosting services, we’ve decided to go all-in on the managed cloud offering.”

Memset itself has made notable progress as a provider to UK government in the past year or so through G-Cloud, and whilst there is still a majority of customers happy to purchase “off the shelf” products in the CloudStore, there is an increasing demand for the managed services model. MMS will deliver an “all-inclusive” solution combining traditional managed hosting together with options such as migration, application management, pro-active monitoring, full change management, database administration and a telephone service desk.

The service available today, will really enable this flourishing British SME to stand out against rival cloud Infrastructure-As-A-Service (IaaS) providers on both price and quality of service.
