Infrastructure As A Service (IaaS)
Infrastructure as a Service can save your company time and money.
Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) has become a popular way for companies, of all sizes and industries, to effectively manage their IT environment, in the cloud. IaaS allows companies to lease IT infrastructure from a service provider, rather than purchasing equipment and hosting it on-premise.
Infrastructure as a Service allows your company to select an operating system and load applications onto their servers, but it is the responsibility of the Infrastructure service provider to keep the equipment powered up and secure in their off-site, secure data facility. Infrastructure as a Service might include Co-location, servers, hardware, storage, desktop virtualization, and internet services.
There are many benefits to using Infrastructure as a Service, including:
