Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS)
Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) is a form of cloud computing that provides virtualized computing resources over the internet. Each component is provided as a service (i.e. hardware, servers, computing, storage). This adds major flexibility for companies to customize solutions based on their specific needs. Most importantly, these solutions free IT organizations from the time-consuming work of managing their own servers in house. Some of the main benefits of IaaS include cost savings, scalability/flexibility, shorter lead times/faster time to market, and ongoing support options.
