IaaS - Infrastructure as a Service in Azure
Anyone running a company wants constant cash flow and as few cyber attacks as possible. Is that even feasible? This is possible with Infrastructure as a Service (laaS) from Microsoft.
WHAT IS “IAAS”?
In addition to the “Software as a Service (SaaS)” and “Platform as a Service (PaaS)” service models, (laaS) is also provided and managed by Microsoft via the Internet. Infrastructure as a Service or laaS provides the components of a data center infrastructure that include hardware, computing power, storage space and network resources from the cloud.
WHO IS “IAAS” IDEALLY SUITABLE FOR?
Infrastructure as a Service (laaS) is particularly suitable for compan
ies with strongly fluctuating requirements for network, server and storage capacities.
Fast growing companies or start-ups often use laaS so that they can keep up with the rapidly increasing demand for hardware resources. Web hosting is also cheaper with laaS than with traditional hosting.
For companies that want to avoid the expense of storage management and backup by qualified employees. Infrastructure as a Service is ideally suited for unforeseen hurdles and constantly increasing storage requirements.
In online shops, when higher capacities are required in times of high sales, there is the possibility of renting them without any problems. This eliminates the need to wait for additional hardware to be installed.
Advantageous for enormous amounts of data that contain important trends, patterns or associations. In order to be able to determine hidden data stocks, high processing power is required.
Supercomputers, also High Performance Computing (HPC), can use computer clusters or grid computering configurations to solve complex tasks involving millions of variables or calculations.
WHAT ADVANTAGES DOES INFRASTRUCTURE AS A SERVICE (IAAS) OFFER?
"IaaS" with Microsoft Azure enables you to save costs, increase operational efficiency and run a modern, flexible and profitable company. Which advantages could be more convincing?
WHO IS RESPONSIBLE FOR SMOOTH Operation AT “IAAS”?
When using Infrastructure as a Service, responsibilities are precisely defined between the cloud, provider and user.
The service provider generally takes care of everything relating to the provision of the hardware. Also the power supply, capacity management, backup, cooling, repairs in the event of hardware defects, patching and updating of the firmware.
The customer is responsible for the operating systems and applications, but also for data storage, user and rights management, security such as firewall, any encryption and data protection requirements.
