Services are well understood, but the diverse requirements of end-clients have

implementing automation is increased with the hybrid workload (servers spread
across the Big-3 cloud providers Amazon Web Services, Google Cloud Platform,
Microsoft Azure) and hence most providers were forced to rely on manual
This changes with InfraGuard.io which is
bringing in an era of Platform-backed Managed Services with in-built automation
and self-governance features. Singapore-based Cloud Comrade is one of the first
partners to adopt this new way of working.
InfraGuard’s CEO, Deepak Sharma said,
“InfraGuard is built by converging our decade-long experience in Cloud Managed
Services into a single product. Imagine a server management solution that works
seamlessly across all Cloud Providers & Data Centres and supports all
flavours of Windows & UNIX Operating Systems. One that brings central access
policies, automation and scalability right from Day 1 and is backed by
world-class support. Too good to be true? Well, it is a reality now. InfraGuard
