What is Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS)?

Infrastructure as a service (IaaS) is a form of cloud computing that provides virtualised computing resources over the internet.

Think of it as hardware as a service or the rental of hardware. It is servers, computer storage and network infrastructure. It is data centre space owned and maintained by a third party and offered as a fully managed, outsourced service on demand.

It is part of the three main types of cloud computing, these are:

  • Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS)
  • Software as a Service (SaaS)
  • Platform as a Service (PaaS)

For more information on the types of cloud computing services SA1 offer, please visit our cloud computing page here.

Why you should consider outsourcing your Infrastructure?

Technology should be assisting your business, not preventing you from achieving your businesses full potential.

Outsourcing your IT infrastructure in Bristol allows you to focus on your business and leave the technical ramifications to a team of trained professionals.

Advantages of outsourcing your IaaS.

There are multiple benefits to outsourcing your IaaS, these include:

  • Cost Savings: Outsourcing the operation and management to a third-party provider means that you do not have the expense of setting up, managing and maintaining an on-site data centre. You will no longer be responsible for the uptime, maintaining of hardware and network devices.
Cloud telephony is also the perfect solution for those who are conscious of negative situations
SA1 has built strong partnerships with some of the UK’s leading business broadband package providers.
  • Security: The consolidation of your resources means your organisation is less vulnerable to theft, loss or damage. A cloud service provider can deliver greater security than an in-house set up, or at least can provide a higher level of security for a fraction of the cost. Many providers come with a full disaster recovery plan allowing you to feel secure that your business is protected.
  • Greater Control: A scalable infrastructure provides better and more control. Business rules and regulations are easier to enforce, applications are easier to monitor and access.
