I interviewed Pete Langas from Nerdio – Pete is the Sr. Director of Strategic Partnership and Distribution at Nerdio.

Nerdio empowers managed service providers to build and/or rapidly grow their cloud IT practices through what Pete calls a “ridiculously simple IT management platform” for public and private cloud. Nerdio for Azure is the first IT automation technology that delivers easy packaging, pricing, provisioning, ongoing management, and cost-optimization to complete IT environments in the Microsoft cloud. Nerdio Private Cloud is a fully integrated platform that delivers a comprehensive IT environment at your fingertips – including virtual hardware, software, security, backup and disaster recovery, and 24/7 tech-nerd support.

Without Nerdio for Azure, an unoptimized IT environment running in Azure is higher cost than on-premises. You also need expensive engineers to onboard and manage customers in Azure. With Nerdio, you can automatically deploy a complete IT environment in Azure within 2 hours, and without an engineer. Thanks to Nerdio’s cost estimator, pricing out Nerdio for Azure is super simple. It easily enables MSPs to comprehensively calculate the costs and savings of running IT in the Microsoft cloud

We talked about several elements of getting started with cloud services for MSPs. In particular, if you’re a Microsoft and have access to Azure as part of that partnership, Pete encourages you to deploy those Azure resources with Nerdio as a was to get experience with both products.
