Cloud-based solutions have become extremely popular in the business world due to their scalability, flexibility, and numerous other advantages for companies looking to boost efficiency and improve performance. One of the most popular types of cloud-based solutions is Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS). If you're considering purchasing and implementing an IaaS offering for your business, the following details can help you make an informed decision.What is IaaS?
IT infrastructure is equipment that's usually located in your data room or telecom closet. It can include routers, servers, switches, firewalls and data storage devices, among other types of tech. IaaS offerings involve the supplier delivering virtualized infrastructure like networking equipment and servers over the internet.
Businesses can use IaaS for various purposes, including (but not limited to) the following, according to Microsoft Azure:
- Data storage
- Analysis of big data
- Web application support
- Backup and disaster recovery systems
There are numerous advantages to implementing IaaS solutions, compared to traditional on-premise infrastructure. Here are a few key reasons why IaaS offerings appeal to organizations of all sizes:
- Cost containment: Instead of purchasing and maintaining your own hardware, you can pay for IaaS on-demand and only get charged for what you actually need and use.
- Scalability: It's easy to scale IaaS as your business grows and/or in line with changing IT requirements.
- Flexibility: With IaaS, you can access important infrastructure from anywhere and at any time, as long as you have an internet connection. This is especially advantageous for companies with a considerable number of mobile and/or remote workers.
- Less downtime: If disaster strikes your organization, your IaaS solution won't go down, since it's hosted off-site.
