Infrastructure as a Service

Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) comprises of highly automated and scalable compute resources, supported by cloud storage and network capability that can be self-provisioned, metered, and made available on-demand. Fundamentally, in the IaaS model, the provider takes care of the hardware and the rest is completely managed by the user. Based on a pay-per-use structure, the resources can be easily scaled up or down as per the requirements. Some popular examples are Rackspace, Amazon Web Services (AWS), Cisco Metapod, Microsoft Azure, and Google Compute Engine (GCE).

Why IaaS?

The biggest advantage of choosing an IaaS service is a ready-made cloud infrastructure designed for businesses of all sizes and in all industries to manage their IT environments. IaaS is basically hardware outsourcing in a Public Cloud environment, saving you money and freeing you up from the hassles of managing the development and maintenance of tools and systems.

Advantages

Reduces Capital Expense
There is no need to make capital investments in the computing infrastructure, maintenance or office space to store the equipment which is ideal for start-ups and launching new products.

Subscription Model
User-friendly pricing models allow you to only pay for what you use. Most IaaS solutions are offered using a “pay-as-you-go” subscription-based plan making it an economical option.

Access Friendly
IaaS is not restricted by user’s hardware location. All you will need is a stable Internet connection and you are set to use it anywhere, at any time.

Latest Technology Support
IaaS providers always keep up with the most advanced technologies to best serve their clients. There is no need to manage new releases of the software.
