Advantages of Infrastructure as a Service…
With infrastructure needs growing every day, companies need options to incorporate additional or on-demand computing power.
Rather than purchasing and installing servers and other expensive infrastructure, companies can now obtain their infrastructure as a service (IaaS). So, let our team explore which IaaS software and providers are best for you.
Find the Best IaaS Providers
Finding the best infrastructure as a service provider for your specific needs is not an easy task. IaaS providers differ significantly in their service offerings and pricing. Your company needs a skilled IaaS approach to determine key differences and deliver the best value for your investment.
Our network engineers will help you find the best IaaS provider to meet your exact business needs.
Full-Service IaaS Providers…
Managed hosting typically involves a dedicated or virtual server hosted at a data center. Monthly service fees cover all server maintenance, so there’s no work on your end.
Depending on the data center offering, additional items such as firewalls, software licenses, backups, mirrored drives, etc. may be included in the monthly fee.
Do it Yourself Option…
Unmanaged IaaS hosting includes a dedicated or virtual server hosted at a data center, but maintenance of the server is left to you. Additionally, the list of extra items and features is typically smaller, or nonexistent.
For these reasons, unmanaged hosting is typically a less expensive alternative to managed hosting.
Hosted servers are owned by the data center and leased to you as part of your monthly service fee. The data center is responsible for all hardware components and refreshing the server at end of life.
Bring your own…
Collocated servers are owned by you, but hosted at the data center.
In this scenario, your monthly service fee only covers the use of the data center’s cabinet space and network.
IaaS Cloud for Disaster Planning…
An IaaS cloud is also the perfect low-maintenance solution for establishing a disaster recovery site.
