IaaS offers virtualized computing resources via the cloud. With laaS, you can save on costs associated with purchasing, housing, or maintaining the computer, storage, and network components required to run your business. This alleviates the hassles associated with upgrades, configuration, and support.
Other IaaS benefits include increased agility. Since you pay for these services monthly, you can quickly scale your environment to match your business demands. Many IaaS providers also guarantee their uptime, so you don’t need to worry about your systems crashing.
By outsourcing your data center infrastructure to a specialized managed services and private cloud provider like Syntax, you can be more responsive to your business’s growth objectives.
Syntax’s Application Infrastructure-as-a-Service provides a secure, resilient, private, cloud architected to boost the performance of your unique application portfolio.
Infrastructure-as-a-Service offers virtualized computing resources via the cloud. In this model, your cloud provider handles your networking, storage, servers, and virtualization.
You can build your own IaaS platform in-house. Alternatively, you can go with a public cloud provider such as Amazon Web Services (AWS) or Microsoft Azure. These vendors give you a pre-defined set of services that serve as an on-ramp to the cloud. IaaS providers offer service level agreements (SLAs) on your infrastructure not on your applications so if an application goes down, you are responsible for getting it up and running.
An IaaS model requires you to handle much of your IT environment in-house. Many companies don’t realize they need to take care of their backups, applications, and data until after they sign an IaaS contact.
Then, months later, they realize that their servers have never been patched and they could lose their data.
With Managed IaaS, you can outsource your infrastructure and its management.
This service includes everything that you get with IaaS, along with a team to handle the following:
- Backup, restoration, and disaster recovery
- Operating system management
Your Managed IaaS provider will monitor your infrastructure and systems 24/7. If something happens, they can quickly resolve issues. Your Managed IaaS provider can also give you higher levels of security and performance than you would get with standard IaaS services.
The many Advantages of IaaS
IaaS removes the upfront expense of setting up and managing an on-site data center, making it an economical option.
Available options for custom applications, systems, versions and infrastructure, allowing customers to focus on the processes closest to their business and their customers.
All Flash-Based Storage
Maximize performance with all flash based storage.
IaaS enables you to quickly scale up resources to accommodate increases in demand for your application, then scale resources back down again when activity decreases to save you money.
IaaS frees up your team to focus on your organization’s core business rather than on IT infrastructure.
With IaaS there’s no need to maintain and upgrade software and hardware or troubleshoot equipment problems.
The Syntax Enterprise Cloud® can provide security for your applications and data that is even better than what you can attain in-house.
You don’t need to first setup the infrastructure before you can develop and deliver apps.
