IaaS – Managed cloud service
Businesses want IT capabilities that will allow them to test new business models and implement new services quickly. Public or private cloud services offer organizations a new model for consuming IT resources.In the new model, organizations buy and consume only the required resources when needed and in real time.
They are able to set up infrastructure resources and platforms to order, and with one click build, test and deploy the applications they need.
IT managers do not have to waste time tinkering with hardware, with integration between different vendors in infrastructure, deployment, complex management and infrastructure growth and refresh planning. Therefore in a reality of unpredictable and changing requirements, a public cloud is the ideal solution for applications and workloads. For example, if a business launches a new online service or application – the demand for the service or application is not well known in advance. In this case, using a public cloud as an infrastructure allows businesses to provide resources for the service or application depending on demand.
An example of changing requirements is applications with a jump in resource consumption at specific times such as payroll systems or end-of-month reports, for example online shopping portals which are characterized by seasonality when the peak of demand is often several times the normal average.
In addition, there are cases where there is no desire or ability to provide IT services to a specific infrastructure within the organization. Then, it makes more sense to start consuming a complete computing infrastructure including public cloud IT services.
