Infrastructure as a service (IaaS) is an instant computing infrastructure, provisioned and managed over the internet. Customers who access this service from Wanstor can quickly scale up and down with demand, and only pay for they use. IaaS helps IT teams avoid the expense and complexity of buying and managing their own physical servers and other data centre infrastructure. Each resource is offered as a separate service component, and the IT team only needs to rent a particular part for as long as they need it. Wanstor will manage the infrastructure, while you purchase, install, configure and manage your own software, operating systems, middleware and applications.

Wanstor’s customers use IaaS to:

  • Test and develop: IT Teams can quickly set up and dismantle test and development environments, bringing new applications to market faster. IaaS makes scaling dev-test environments up and down quick and economical.
  • Website hosting: Running websites using IaaS can be less expensive than traditional web hosting.
  • Storage, backup and recovery: Businesses avoid the capital outlay for storage and complexity of storage management, which typically requires skilled staff to manage data and meet legal and compliance requirements. IaaS is useful for handling unpredictable demand and steadily growing storage needs. It can also simplify the planning and management of backup and recovery systems.
  • Web apps: IaaS provides all the infrastructure to support web apps, including storage, web and application servers, and networking resources. Businesses can quickly deploy web apps on IaaS and easily scale infrastructure up and down when demand for the apps is unpredictable.
  • High-performance computing: High-performance computing (HPC) on supercomputers, computer grids or computer clusters helps solve complex problems involving millions of variables or calculations.
  • Big data analysis: Big data is a popular term for massive data sets that contain potentially valuable patterns, trends and associations. Mining data sets to locate or tease out these hidden patterns requires a huge amount of processing power, which IaaS provides economically.

Benefits of IT infrastructure services for your business include:

  • Eliminates capital expense and reduces ongoing costs: IaaS moves past the upfront expense of setting up and managing an on-site data centre, making it an economical option for IT teams who may not have large IT infrastructure budgets available to them.
  • Improves business continuity and disaster recovery: Achieving high availability, business continuity and disaster recovery is expensive, as it requires a significant amount of technology and staff. But with the right service level agreement (SLA) in place, IaaS can reduce this cost, meaning IT teams can access applications and data as usual during a disaster or outage.
  • Innovation: As soon as the IT team has decided to launch a new product or initiative, the necessary computing infrastructure can be ready in minutes or hours, rather than the days or weeks it could take to set up internally.
  • Respond quicker to business needs: IaaS enables IT teams to quickly scale up resources to accommodate spikes in demand for applications and other operating systems.
  • Focus on the core business: IaaS frees up the IT team to focus on core business rather than on IT infrastructure and administrative processes.
  • Increase stability, reliability and support: With IaaS, there is no need to maintain and upgrade software and hardware or troubleshoot equipment problems. With the appropriate agreement in place, Wanstor makes sure that your infrastructure is reliable and meets SLAs.
  • Better security: With the appropriate service agreement, Wanstor can provide security for your applications and data that may be better than what you can attain in-house.
  • Gets new apps to users faster: Because you don’t need to first set up the infrastructure before you can develop and deliver apps, you can get them to users faster with IaaS.

Improve your IT Infrastructure and transform your business.
