Despite the amount of work Microsoft has put into making Azure an easy-to-use program for companies, some complexities still exist that make it a challenge to keep up with for smaller businesses. One such complication is bandwidth issues.
That’s why Microsoft took the time to certify a handful of Azure Expert Managed Service Providers (MSPs), like us here at Atmosera, who are pros when it comes to dealing with these problems. If you’ve ever wondered how Azure MSPs meet bandwidth challenges head-on, then this blog post will help detail that out for you.
Common Bandwidth Issues
There are specific bandwidth-related issues that occur more often than others. Here are a few examples of the ones that MSPs deal with on a regular basis.
High Amounts of Usage
Sharing files between users, using large-scale apps, and downloading massive amounts of data are all standard practices for companies using the cloud. Unfortunately, there’s only so much bandwidth available to handle all these actions, so when many of them happen at once, the network becomes congested.
Ideally, having a strong, stable connection is essential for running a business, but not all companies can afford the best internet package or equipment possible. Problems that occur from either of these deficiencies can lead to slower speeds or no connection at all.
Not all bandwidth issues come directly from the user, though. Sometimes it’s an issue with the Domain Name System (DNS). Bad configurations and failures with the host’s hardware or network could be the culprits of the difficulties. However, a lot of the time, it comes down to high amounts of latency within the system.
How MSPs Handle Them
While the end-user can solve some of these problems on their own, most of the time they’ll rely on an MSP to help remedy the issue. So how do Azure MSPs meet bandwidth challenges such as these?
Team of Experts
One of the main reasons why people who use Azure rely on MSPs is that we have specialized teams of experts who deal with these problems all the time. Since most individual companies don’t have the time or resources to troubleshoot cloud bandwidth issues, they need an experienced group that they can rely on. MSPs put a lot of effort into being the best when it comes to these complications.
Constant Monitoring and Support
In fact, most MSPs are so good that they can catch and repair issues before the end-users even notice they’ve occurred. That’s because MSPs are constantly monitoring the cloud to find a potential problem right away. However, there will be times in which users discover the problem first, but when they do, MSPs will have a line of support on standby to troubleshoot solutions right away.
