Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) is a cloud solution that allows businesses to subscribe to servers in the cloud. IaaS is recommended if your business is seeking a cost-effective subscription-based solution that allow you to scale quickly, without the cost of server maintenance or replacement.

What is IaaS (Infrastructure as a Service)?

Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) is a cloud service where businesses can subscribe to servers in the cloud. Run any operating systems or applications on the hosted servers without the need to worry about the upfront costs, maintenance, or replacement costs of the servers.

IaaS allows businesses to scale up or scale down resources quickly and efficiently, it is a flexible and managed infrastructure platform with predictable monthly costs. If you are using a legacy IT infrastructure IaaS may be an ideal solution to upgrade your infrastructure without the upfront costs of purchasing new servers and new Microsoft licensing which will need updating regularly.

How can IaaS benefit my business?

Infrastructure as a Service can be more beneficial to businesses that don’t want to manage or own their cloud infrastructure. Through utilising IaaS, testing and development, backup and recovery, and big data analysis can be a more efficient process. As well as this, IaaS also has the benefits of:

  • Reduced reliance on on-premise infrastructure management
  • Rigid compliance standards
  • Reduced capital investment cycles
  • Services are always on the latest version
  • Predictable monthly costs
  • Improved reliability as cloud services are distributed over multiple data centres
