These Key Benefits IAAS Brings to Your Business!
Many CIOs who are struggling to grow the business want to determine if their infrastructure can keep pace with the demand to innovate and response to the competitive pressures.
We want to tell all such CIOs that IAAS (Infrastructure as a Service) is an ideal solution to their problem in a lot of ways.
IAAS reduces the infrastructure costs, offer virtually endless agility and scalability and boost time to market.
It does this via model that virtually makes sure uptime (most service providers confirm at least “five nines” of uptime in their SLAs) along with the utmost degrees of compliance and security.
As per the Yankee Group research, the key 5 motivating factors for using IaaS include cost savings infrastructure or hardware; capacity management; cost savings on IT administration and staffing; disaster recovery, business continuity and an access to new capabilities and skills.
A clear advantage of migrating to the IaaS model is reduced infrastructure costs. No longer do businesses have to ensure uptime, maintain hardware, networking equipment, or change old equipment. IaaS saves businesses from having to get more capacity address the sudden business spikes. Businesses having a small-scale IT infrastructure usually need a less number of IT staff as well. IAAS’s pay-as-you-go model offers huge cost saving.
Flexibility & Scalability
One of the most prominent advantages of IaaS lies in its ability to right away scale up and down fast in response to a business’s requirements. IaaS providers usually own the latest, most powerful servers, storage, and networking technology to cate the requirements of their customers. This on-demand scalability offers more flexibility as well as agility to respond to varying requirements and opportunities. This is particularly helpful in developing and dismantling development environments, which benefit from this augmented agility and speed.
Support for high availability & Disaster Recovery
While all businesses have certain kind of disaster recovery strategy, the technology underlying such plans is usually unwieldy and expensive. Business that is situated in numerous disparate locations often have dissimilar disaster recovery as well as business continuity plans and technologies, which makes efficient management nearly impossible.
IaaS hereby, yields a combined disaster recovery infrastructure, increasing manageability and reducing costs. As stated by Frost & Sullivan research, CIOs consider business continuity and planning for disaster recovery the key stimulators for implementing IaaS.
Accelerated Business Growth
Time, energy and money spent in taking technology decisions and recruiting staff to maintain and manage the technology infrastructure is the time not spent on boosting the business. By shifting the infrastructure to a service-based model, businesses can easily focus their resources and time where they fit, on emerging innovations in solutions and applications.
