SkyTerra What is a Cloud Managed Service Provider

A cloud managed service provider is a third-party company which offers a cloud-based platform, infrastructure and application. It bundles cloud services into a managed service agreement which means you are not just buying the cloud services, but getting the expertise and support you need to keep it optimized and secure. Think of it as you would a utility company — you pay only for the services you use, in this case cloud services.
