Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) is one of the three fundamental service models of Cyquent Technologies alongside Platform as a Service (PaaS) and Software as a Service (SaaS). As with all Cyquent Technologies services it provides access to computing resource in a virtualised environment, “the Cloud”, across a public connection, usually the internet. In the case of IaaS the computing resource provided is specifically that of virtualised hardware, in other words, computing infrastructure. The definition includes such offerings as virtual server space, network connections, bandwidth, IP adresses and lo balancers. Physically, the pool of hardware resource is pulled from a multitude of servers and networks usually distributed across numerous data centers, all of which the cloud provider is responsible for maintaining. The client, on the other hand, is given access to the virtualised components in order to build their own IT platforms.
In common with the other two forms of cloud hosting, IaaS can be utilised by enterprise customers to create cost effective and easily scalable IT solutions where the complexities and expenses of managing the underlying hardware are outsourced to the cloud provider. If the scale of a business customer’s operations fluctuate, or they are looking to expand, they can tap into the cloud resource as and when they need it rather than purchase, install and integrate hardware themselves.
IaaS, or Infrastructure as a Service, can help your organisation reduce IT costs, leverage the latest IT equipment, deploy new infrastructure quickly and reduce IT personnel.
IaaS is a Cyquent Technologies service model, where basic computing resources like servers and storage are provisioned over the Internet. You only pay for consumption of the services you use, and pass on all responsibilities of managing the IT onto us, your IaaS provider.
