While cloud providers are known for providing the platform for storing incredible amounts of data, their biggest impact has been the three fundamental service models they have brought to millions of small-and-medium business (SMBs). No longer do SMBs have to burn through capital expenses to get build and configure complex server networks - now, third-party providers offer Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS), allowing for simplified rollout of network infrastructure that would have been internally designed and built before the advent of cloud services.
Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) is one of the three fundamental service models of cloud computing along with:
IaaS provides virtualized computer resources online to clients without them having to pay for physical resources like servers, workstations, and data centers. A cloud provider offers those resources to a business “as a service” - that is to say, as a contractual relationship where access to the virtual environment and resources is opened to the client, while the cloud provider is responsible for its maintenance and security. The uses of IaaS are broad, but several core functions commonly used by businesses include:.
While many larger companies prefer the security of housing all of their infrastructure components in a private server farm, the benefits of IaaS are difficult to look past. Here are a few ways that IaaS deployment has far outstripped its physical component first cousin.
Setting-up and managing a traditional data center can be complicate and costly for most organizations.
