What are the benefits of infrastructure-as-a-service for businesses?

The proliferation of on-demand cloud services represents one of the most significant technological advances of recent times. Businesses and organisations can now access highly specialised software and hardware remotely while paying a recurring subscription fee that is a fraction of the cost of bringing that same infrastructure in-house. Infrastructure as a service is a hot trend in cloud computing right now, offering enhanced performance, better security, and a high degree of scalability and support over equivalently-priced local infrastructure.

Improved performance at a lower cost

One of the most prominent benefits of IaaS over local hardware for businesses is the enhanced performance despite the lower cost. Under the IaaS model, a business’s infrastructure is provided and maintained by a cloud service provider. The provider shoulders the costs of setting up the infrastructure and takes responsibility for ensuring it is well-maintained and always available.

Businesses can expect better performance from cloud-based infrastructure because providers can achieve a more reliable and robust setup in a data centre than would be possible in an office environment. They will also have redundancies in place to ensure they maximise their uptime and avoid service interruptions.

Not only are the upfront costs of IaaS virtually non-existent compared to buying, installing, and maintaining hardware locally, but the ongoing capital expenditure is much lower. Most cloud service providers agree to provide a certain performance level as defined in their Service Level Agreement. – Read more
