IT Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS)
Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) is an innovative cloud solution that provides access to various computing resources through a virtualized environment via the Internet. As networking is progressing and evolving, businesses are realizing the need for dedicated servers to process and run all their applications. As computing technology slowly shifts from physical to digital, IaaS finds the perfect balance between the two, providing ease of use at an affordable cost. Ultimately, Infrastructure as a Service has allowed businesses to shift their dependency to virtualized hardware, such as virtual servers, storage, and networking. RapidScale’s CloudServer is integrated with tools from industry leaders, such as Cisco and NetApp, to ensure the highest quality service possible. By utilizing CloudServer, your organization will operate at enterprise level in no time.
Traditionally, businesses and organizations have company servers on-site to run multiple applications, such as email, or for storage purposes. As the move over to IaaS is picking up speed, many companies are starting to realize the benefits of switching over to the cloud and the potential competitive advantage they can gain by abandoning traditional IT infrastructure. The idea of relying on physical hardware is quickly becoming obsolete as IaaS allows for more flexibility and scalability. CloudServer works by virtualizing your organization’s servers and housing them in our data centers across the United States and the world.
The entire concept of IaaS allows businesses to save money and increase productivity by renting cloud infrastructure instead of owning physical hardware. Utilizing a cloud solution, such as RapidScale’s CloudServer, will reduce capital expenditure because you will no longer need to invest large amounts of capital to purchase your own hardware, making it ideal for small businesses or startups. Along with lower costs, the benefits of IaaS also include scalability coupled with utility-style pricing to further reduce costs and time to market. With IaaS, consumers can expect resources to be available when they need them, and enjoy the elasticity that comes with cloud computing. This allows for easy expansion when needed and no wasted capacity because of the pay-as-you-go model. The client only pays for the resources used, making it highly cost effective and practical.
CloudServer is extremely flexible and offers a comprehensive range of options designed to fit your business’ needs. RapidScale offers private, public, and even hybrid cloud options to suit your business functions. The private cloud is completely dedicated while the public cloud operates a shared infrastructure at a lower cost. Our experts can help you decide which platform your business should deploy.
Some of the greatest advantages of utilizing IaaS includes the ability to migrate from capital expenditure over to operational expenditure and the significant reduction in potential security issues. The underlying physical hardware needed to host an IaaS service is maintained by the cloud provider instead of the client. Migrating over to the cloud also significantly reduces any potential security issues present when hosting servers locally. RapidScale’s CloudServer houses data in Tier 3, Class 1 data centers that are securely backed up to ensure that any business-critical applications and data are fully accessible at any time. CloudServer redundancy means that there is no single point of failure. In the unlikely event of failure, the data will be fully redundant in a different data center to ensure business runs as usual.
