Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) breaks the IT spending model paradigm. IaaS saves money, offers unprecedented peace of mind, and clears the road for innovation because it removes the need to purchase, maintain, monitor, protect and upgrade the physical infrastructure needed for critical operations.
It’s not like Mom used to say: With IaaS you buy the milk – and let someone else deal with the cow. IaaS eliminates three chronic headaches that hamper or limit IT departments and organizations.1. Security
From hackers to Heartbleed to natural disasters, threats to data and network security abound. Shifting to an IaaS platform with a reliable, secure partner offers your organization a way to mitigate risk. The Involta CompliantCloud℠ IaaS service, for example, is like moving your life savings from a home safe to Fort Knox. Involta facilities are world-class, concurrently maintainable data centers – secure, geographically safe, and operated with multiple layers of redundancy so as to provided a resilient service. Involta performas daily integrity and recovery checks and monitor servers, storage, networks and backup 24/7/365.
In an emergency, you can focus on what really matters – protecting your customers and employees – knowing the data and IT infrastructure critical to your business are secure, backed up and recovery-ready.
2. Regulatory Compliance
Standards for data security, handling and operations are getting tougher across all industries. Involta data centers and operations are subjected to independent, external assessment each and every year. By partnering with Involta, our customers have been able to demonstrate their compliance with a variety of standards:
- SSAE 16Type II - SOC (Service Organization Control)
- ISO27001 Information Security Management System
- PCIDSS (Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard)
- HIPAA (Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act)
- EU SAFE HARBOR PROGRAM
- SOX (Sarbanes-Oxley Act)
- JSOX (Japan SOX)
Involta can help you prepare for and execute audits to ensure regulatory compliance and expand your customer base.
3. Spiraling Costs
IaaS removes the unpredictability from IT budgeting because you pay for function, not hardware. Efficiently leverage our (massive) investment in facilities, technology and human resources rather than invest in – and worry about – your own. IaaS relieves you and your staff of the burden of infrastructure maintenance, freeing you to focus on innovation and revenue growth.
