Infrastructure as a Service, one of the three main categories of cloud computing service that allows you to lease
and manage computing infrastructure for your business needs. There are a number of enterprises that are
transforming their IT infrastructure from multiple independent data centers to an Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS)
model, where shared pools of storage are made available to end-users on a self-service basis. When implemented
properly, this strategy introduces the much needed in the data center.


Infrastructure-as-a-Service frees an organization to leverage and focus their time and resources in bringing
innovations in applications and solutions and is suitable for businesses of any size. It gives smaller organizations
access to systems and computing power that might otherwise be beyond their means, and it helps large
organizations bring down their capital and IT support costs. IaaS also lowers the financial and logistical barriers for
startup businesses to enter the market and push their products and services to customers in a fraction of the
standard time frame. The IaaS model allows startups to start small and grow to any size on the pay-as-you-go plan.


Making your enterprise, mobile, elastic and global Iaas, helps you manage your systems from anywhere, you can
shrink and grow your computing infrastructure as needed and you can keep your global customers happy with zero
downtime. And, since the organization is not tied to a server room or data center, the location becomes irrelevant.
You can work from home and your employees can be spread across the globe. Cloud Infrastructure as a Service
(IaaS) helps agencies realize cost savings and efficiencies while modernizing and expanding their IT capabilities
without spending capital resources on infrastructure.


Cloud computing is becoming more widely utilized, making it important for organizations to understand ways to
maximize benefits and minimize risks of a move to the cloud. If you’re considering moving to an IaaS solution or
you’re part of a startup, look for a service provider that is capable of aligning IT with business goals to achieve
more than a simple reduction of costs. The cloud computing provider must offer the depth and breadth of
expertise to professionally manage your critical IT infrastructure and help streamline your IT operations using
global standards such as ITIL and also provide you the flexibility to manage IT costs and operations tailored to your
business requirements. Look for experience, longevity, availability, and customer service and customer satisfaction
in your quest to migrate to the cloud.
