Infrastructure services, commonly known as (IaaS), are made of highly scalable and automated compute resources. This can come by way of a fully hosted cloud solution, a hybrid setup, or a private cloud infrastructure utilising multiple locations.
IaaS delivers cloud computing server and desktop infrastructure, including network, operating systems, and storage, typically through virtualisation technology such as Microsoft, VMware, Citrix, Nutanix, to name a few. These cloud services are typically provided to the customer through a dashboard or an API, giving IaaS clients complete control over the entire infrastructure managed and supported by HybrIT. IaaS typically would consist of a Microsoft Azure or AWS platform with a variety of add-on services or 3rd party applications being delivered through SaaS or a privately hosted infrastructure.
As opposed to SaaS or PaaS, IaaS delivers aspects such as applications, runtime, OS layer, middleware and data. However, providers of the IaaS manage the servers, hard drives, networking, virtualisation, and storage. There are further services to be obtained at a more comprehensive level such as databases and complex line of business integration.
HybrIT have a huge amount of experience delivering a variety of different infrastructures including:
Microsoft Azure, Amazon Web Services (AWS)
Public cloud is dominating the IT industry as with more and more customers adopting it, leading vendors such as Microsoft and Amazon continually reinvest back into the technology, delivering more benefits. Public cloud adoption usually forms part of a digital transformation piece and has a high percentage of retention, with many organisations fully embracing a “no tin” strategy.
A powerful combination of both on premise and public cloud
In these scenarios some organisations choose to host a large proportion of the server infra-structure or VDI platform in Azure or AWS, whilst retaining some heritage technology in-house such as bespoke databases. Other organisations simply split the adoption between both for business resilience and continuity.
An infrastructure completely hosted and managed within a privately-owned network
Private cloud still has it’s place, some scenarios see organisations hosting their entire infrastructure in a privately-owned data centre or their own premises, depending on several factors. Sometimes organisations can recognise the cost of investing in Private cloud over a period of several years through financing, which has advantages and disadvantages.
