Cloud computing is the way of the future, especially with so many companies relying on remote access. The Cloud is built to run businesses effectively and efficiently, so it can support a team of any size. However, not every company can afford to manage and support its own cloud infrastructure. That’s where Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) comes in. Now, you can have those scalable services without having to purchase your own cloud.What Is IaaS?
IaaS is an instant computing infrastructure, provisioned and managed over the internet. It enables companies to utilize web-based operating systems, applications, and storage without having to purchase, manage and support the underlying cloud infrastructure. IaaS has a lot of great advantages.
First of all, IaaS does not have the upfront expense of setting up and managing an onsite data center, nor does it require trained personnel to maintain the hardware, which means you save tremendously by eliminating internal IT services from your business. IaaS also results in a reduction of downtime, which means more productivity. Best of all, most companies that offer IaaS use a pay-as-you-go model, so you pay for only what you need when you need it.
The pay-as-you-go model comes in handy because IaaS allows for on-demand scalability. You can quickly scale your company’s capacity up or down depending on your business needs, changing opportunities in the marketplace, or consumer demand. These changes can also be made with minimal downtime because the necessary computing infrastructure can be ready in a matter of minutes or hours.
You never know when a freak accident can occur, but IaaS gives you the ability to overcome natural disasters, website crashes, or any other worst-case scenario. IaaS means your data, processes, and disaster recovery protocol are stored safely in the cloud, where they can be easily retrieved. This means returning to normal operations can be a much simpler proposition with IaaS.
Keeping your information in the cloud and being able to access it from anywhere means IaaS also allows you to access your company’s apps, data, and other resources as long as an Internet connection is available. You can rely on IaaS to empower your mobile workforce and provide the foundation for business continuity.
IaaS can also be a safer option for your data. Because it is cloud-based and a managed service, using IaaS means your business will receive immediate security without the hassle of server maintenance and updates to keep up with security risks. Instead, your provider will perform more regular security audits and ensure your sensitive information is kept secure.
