Fast IT: Accelerate Your Business with Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS)

The increasing pace of business is driving the need to develop, test, and use new applications faster, more securely and with greater flexibility. As a result, IT leaders are pressured to scale, reduce costs, and develop fluid processes. 

That’s a big challenge.To solve for this, companies are moving to more flexible, virtualized, and scalable cloud-based IT models. Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) is a cloud computing service model that provides access to resources in a virtualized environment.The model offers scalable resources with the ability to modify on an as-needed basis.In an IaaS model, the service provider manages the server, storage and network for the organization.This enables organizations to extend capacity by reaching into the cloud rather than purchasing and maintaining their own hardware and software.Moving to a cloud service allows them to transition from a CAPEX to an OPEX expense model, which drives costs savings and operational efficiencies. In addition, organizations can better control operating costs by paying only for the resources used. There’s a compelling business case for organizations to stop running their own data center and expand IT resources within the cloud.

While there are many advantages of cloud computing, there are also risks worth considering as well. Privacy and security, technical difficulties, vulnerability, and dependency are prime areas for concern.The IaaS provider you select is the most important part of your organization’s decision to move to a virtualized IT environment.
