Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS)

The possibilities the cloud can bring to your business are vast. Infrastructure as a service (IaaS) represents one of the most significant areas of opportunity.

Opportunity, not only to gain more from the assets you invest in, but to usher in a fresh approach to the way you do business. IaaS can also help you kick-start your transformation into a modern workplace.

1

Free your business from legacy burdens

Legacy IT that no longer serves your needs can be a time and money vacuum. IaaS offers an instant infrastructure that can be scaled to your needs. Your expert provider performs maintenance, leaving you free to customise your options.

2

Stay in control with IaaS

Infrastructure as a service combines the benefits of managed infrastructure with the advantage of remaining in control of your choices. Select and purchase your preferred software, choose the operating system that’s right for your business and install your own applications.

3

Pay only for what you use

IaaS can remove the need for capital expenditure and the expertise needed to maintain ageing IT assets. It can also deliver cost savings through scalability.

IaaS – the tools you need in a digital world

In a digitally transformed world, it’s vital to adapt to stay ahead. Infrastructure as a service can bring a multitude of benefits to your business and provide fast, tangible return on investment.

With IaaS, your platform does not have to remain a static service over time. Rather, it can be built on and customised, with aspects added and removed in line with your businesses’ evolution.

Capabilities, such as backup, disaster recovery and managed cloud services, can be added to ensure IaaS is working hard for your business. Leaving you and your people to focus on the core activities that drive your digital strategy and success.

Bringing convenience and functionality

Shifting from traditional on-premises infrastructure to a cloud-based IaaS model can initially seem to be a significant undertaking.

It requires planning, expenditure and consulting with your provider to find the best package for you.

However, with no equipment lifecycle to manage, capital expenditure or assets to maintain in-house, return on investment from IaaS can happen almost instantly.

Fulfil your digital ambitions

Platforms such as IaaS can be a first step to bringing positive change to your business. A cloud-first approach can offer scalability, flexibility and cost savings. Leaving you to focus your efforts where they matter most and in turn, boost productivity and innovation.

Avoid unnecessary expense

Remove the need to allocate budget to purchasing, maintaining and replacing physical servers, data centres and other infrastructure. Moving to pay-as-you-use IaaS puts the control back into your hands as you choose when to scale up or down and rent extra components.

Choose and pay for what you need, when you need it

With IaaS, each product you take up is a separate component. This means you can use more or less, as required. Only rent a component for as long as you need it, scaling up or down in line with workflow.
