The Managed Services market is extremely competitive since MSPs provide similar services. To ensure success, MSPs need to constantly find new ways to differentiate themselves from their competition. However, Managed Services are not a commodity. Every organization is unique and so too should the services which are being provided to that company. When it comes to backup and archive solutions, MSPs must find the right solution for each of their customer’s needs. To differentiate effectively, MSPs should look to partner with a cloud service provider who has a flexible service model.
