Infrastructure as a Service

Infrastructure as a Service

(IaaS) does away with the complexity and expense of having to procure, host and maintain hardware and Operating System software on your own remises. t also removes procuring and resourcing the management infrastructure tools required to provision and manage your Infrastructure.

In addition, it transfers compliance requirements, such as ISO, to your cloud provider.

One of the biggest advantages is that it's 'on-demand' scalable. If you need to expand, you can do so without having to buy, install and configure new hardware yourself.

At Cased Dimensions we use BlueStripe software - regarded as the best in the business - to help us analyze, design, redeploy and support your move to the cloud.

Please see our Azure Services to understand how we can help your adoption of IaaS.

Other advantages include:

  • Security - the physical security at data centers is much greater than you could afford to provide on your own premises.
  • Business continuity - if you own your own hardware, the responsibility for backup and management of any failure lies with you. With IaaS, there are so many backup contingencies you are infinitely better protected against hardware failure and data loss.
  • Compliance & Official - IaaS is fully compliant with international governance standards such as ITIL v3 and ISO 27001
