Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS)

Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS)

Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) provides users with virtualized computer infrastructure over the internet. Rather than the large capital expense of installing infrastructure, IaaS often enables a business to pay for the capabilities it needs based on usage and to scale easily as needed.

Why It Matters to your customers

Servers, networking and data centers and other infrastructure represent a significant investment for businesses—not only related to their initial purchase price but also to maintain. With IaaS, much less hardware is required on-site, reducing the burden on IT staff. For businesses with multiple branches, IaaS enables management from corporate headquarters and eliminates the need for IT resources at each location.

In addition, if a business needs increased bandwidth, to accommodate, for example, a growing number of mobile devices used on the network or to leverage analysis from a big data application, IaaS can be almost instantly adjusted to meet the increased demand. This level of flexibility and agility isn’t possible with on-premises hardware, and it results in better user experience: fewer delays and downtime due to an overburdened network.

Why Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) is an Opportunity

Infrastructure as a Service can be managed remotely, enabling you to provide services to multiple clients from a single dashboard. Management can also be automated, rerouting traffic when needed to avoid disruptions to service. Business’ growing demand for network capabilities may reveal additional opportunities such as the need to move to cloud applications or to improve network security. By bundling IaaS with Software as a Service or Platform as a Service offerings, as well as managed IT services, you can provide you clients with secure, always-on application and data access.
