What is Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS)?
Infrastructure as a Service is the concept of providing an IT model where a company can outsource its server hardware that’s used to support the firms operations, applications, storage, and networking requirements. In an IaaS model, Commensus own the physical equipment and have full responsibility for administrating, housing and maintaining the infrastructure. This reduces the costs associated with purchasing and managing servers and means that the organisation only pays for the server resource actually used. IaaS is one of three main types of cloud computing services. The other two cloud options are Software as a Service (SaaS) and Platform as a Service (PaaS).
Benefits of Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS)
Leveraging the power of the Cloud, you can benefit from Infrastructure as a Service to transform the way IT is managed within your organisation. We provide a fully managed solution to ease the burden on the emerging organisation or we can provide a hybrid hosting console called vCloud Director for IT Managers who are looking for a Hybrid Cloud. This gives you the freedom and agility you need to control your private cloud together with your on premise solution, all from the comfort of your desktop.
Iaas moves the concept of Cloud Computing towards a utility computing model for service and billing. Dynamic scaling of your applications means that you only pay for what you consume. This alleviates the financial pressures on the business caused by escalating costs of server hardware, cooling, storage, business continuity, maintenance and management.
