Managed Service Providers

Google Cloud partners who have met the requirements of the Managed Service Provider (MSP) Initiative may deliver certified expertise, more flexibility, cost savings, and reduced time to market to their customers.

Save time and money with MSP Partners

Google Cloud’s MSP Initiative creates a framework for partners to establish and grow their MSP offerings for their customers. Partners who have been invited to take part in this initiative have shown deep cloud expertise.



From deep daily engagement across Google Cloud business and technical teams to quarterly business reviews, these partners will have the tools needed to map a strategic plan with customers in a very thoughtful way.



MSP Initiative partners achieve extensive certification to ensure their skills and knowledge of Google Cloud products. They also undergo formal third-party verification of their capabilities, including the ability to manage, monitor, remediate, and optimize workloads.



These partners have support from dedicated MSP Technical Account Managers and Customer Engineering. Additionally, they may join online and in-person communities to stay up-to-date on the latest from Google Cloud.
