3rd Party Cloud Providers
3rd-party cloud providers are companies that offer cloud computing services to customers, but they do not own or operate their own infrastructure. Instead, they rent or lease computing resources from public cloud providers such as Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft Azure, or Google Cloud Platform (GCP). Some common examples of 3rd-party cloud providers include:
- Managed service providers (MSPs)
- Cloud solution providers (CSPs)
- Value-added resellers (VARs)
- System integrators (SIs)
These companies offer a range of cloud-related services, including cloud migrations, cloud management, cloud security, and cloud support. They help customers leverage the benefits of cloud computing while managing the complexity and risk associated with cloud adoption.
