DNA IT 4D-Managed Datacentre – an Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) solution
Infrastructure as a Service – IaaS, is a form of cloud computing that provides virtualised computing resources over the internet. In an IaaS model, servers, storage and network resources are provided by IaaS service providers who also host user’s applications and provide a managed IT service for system administration tasks.
The IaaS model can deliver very attractive benefits to many organisations.
Financially, IaaS enables organisations to reduce Capex spend and move costs onto an Opex budget. The total cost of ownership (TCO) over the infrastructure lifecycle can deliver significant savings. Faster time to deployment can enable increased business agility and the ability to ramp up or switch off resources based on business volumes means you only pay for what you use.
From an IT operations perspective, IaaS means not having to worry about IT infrastructure – hardware, computer room space, power and cooling, Disaster Recovery / Business Continuity, IT headcount and day to day management as these are all provided as part of the service.
