Infrastructure As a Service

Benefits of Infrastructure As a Service

The last thing the CIO wants to take care of when it comes to improving the organization is whether the infrastructure can keep up with the need to innovate and respond to competitive pressures. IaaS is a good solution to the problem in many ways. 

This can reduce infrastructure costs and provide almost unlimited scalability and agility and accelerate the time to market.

 And it does so in a model that guarantees almost operating time (most service providers guarantee at least "five nine" of operating time under their terms and conditions) and the highest levels of security and compliance.

Many small businesses are warming up to the idea of ​​IaaS as opposed to an internal IT solution and for good reason. Here are some benefits that small businesses enjoy from IaaS adoption.

Cost savings

A notable advantage of switching to the IaaS model is lower infrastructure costs. It is no longer the responsibility of organizations to ensure operating time for the maintenance of hardware and network equipment or the replacement of old equipment. 

IaaS also saves businesses from having to purchase more capacity to deal with sudden business records. Organizations with smaller IT infrastructure typically also require smaller IT staff.

The Pay-as-you-go model also provides significant cost savings. Because the use of IaaS is masses organizations only pay for the required capacity at any given time. 

This method also allows them to avoid fixed monthly or annual commissions for benefits they cannot use. The IaaS model does not require preliminary charges for bandwidth utilization or minimum term commitments.

Ease of scale

IaaS vendors will be able to adapt to small business growth by providing additional resources quickly. This is because service providers have already expected an increase in demand from their range of customers and will have the appropriate systems to support this demand.

 They can then allocate these extra resources to customers who request it - again almost immediately.

Convert CapEx to OpEx

IaaS is changing the cost model of an IT solution from a capital expenditure model to an operating expenditure model. This improves cash flow and aligns the cost with the value.

Faster time to market

Strong competition in every field and time to market is one of the best ways to win the competition. 

Because IaaS provides flexibility and scalability, organizations can overcome and get the job done (and the product or service to market) faster.

DR BC support and high availability

While every organization has some sort of disaster recovery plan, the technology behind these plans is often expensive and uncomplicated. 

Organizations with several different locations often have different disaster recovery programs and business continuities that make management virtually impossible. 

IaaS provides a unified disaster recovery infrastructure that reduces costs and increases manageability. The Frost and Sullivan study found that IT managers see business continuity and disaster preparedness as the leading motivations for IaaS adoption.

If disaster strikes employees can access the same infrastructure they have always accessed through an internet connection from wherever they are. This includes everything the organization needs to function properly - email web servers and critical applications. The result: fast recovery without data loss.
