Managing a modern data center is a daunting — and expensive — task if you go it alone. But partnering with Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) providers can help. Here are seven ways IaaS can pay off for your organization.
Navigating the various types of cloud services — whether they are Software-as-a-Service (SaaS), Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS), or Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) — can get complicated. In most cases, if you’re looking at IaaS, typically, the alternative is to manage your own infrastructure in-house. While it’s certainly possible to provide every bit as much infrastructure capability in your own private data center, there are plenty of reasons why IaaS delivers tremendous business value with far less effort.
There are several ways companies can use an IaaS strategy to partner with a service provider — and use that partnership to reap the benefits. Many of the potential upsides revolve around the expense of building, managing, and supporting your own private data centers.
