The Benefits of Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS)

The Cloud continues to change the Information Technology landscape. Software providers have leveraged this technology by offering Software as a Service (SaaS). This simplifies licensing requirements, provides IT departments with more predictable costs, and allows users to stay up to date with feature and security enhancements.

The benefits from cloud technology don’t end with software. Organizations can also benefit from the growing trend of Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS). IaaS is an IT model designed to provide organizations with increased resource agility and predictable budgeting for critical IT hardware. IaaS can save organizations money, provide incredible flexibility and scalability, and improve IT efficiency.

Infrastructure as a service (IaaS) provides a cloud solution that allows organizations to take advantage of a pay-as-you-go model. The subscription-based model empowers IT to leverage its resources without substantial up-front costs. Predictable and manageable monthly payments help organizations plan and track IT expenses more effectively.

IaaS provides greater flexibility with resource management. With IaaS, organizations only pay for only the resources needed, don’t get stuck with outdated and inefficient hardware, and can scale resources quickly and affordably, according to business need.

Finally, with IaaS, IT leaders don’t have to invest resources in tracking and managing equipment lifecycles. This provides the opportunity for IT to focus on what matters most. Since infrastructure updates and management are part of the IaaS model, teams will always have access to equipment that continues to operate efficiently and effectively, increasing productivity.

IaaS provides a cost-effective alternative to the traditional model of investing in physical IT infrastructure. Subscription-based hardware allows organizations a better way of keeping their equipment up to date and provides unique benefits related to managing the cost of IT and scaling their technology to meet changing business demands.
