Infrastructure as a Service
What Does IaaS Stand For?
Infrastructure as a Service or IaaS is a method growing in popularity for delivering networking, storage, computing, and other resources via the Internet. Through IaaS companies can make the switch to different web-based systems and storage without having to pay for cloud infrastructure. Amazon Web Services (AWS) and Microsoft® Azure® are the two most popular forms of IaaS.
IaaS is one of three major categories of cloud computing. The other two components are Software as a Service (SaaS) and Platform as a Service (PaaS). Of the three components IaaS is the fastest growing as more and more major companies are moving from older data center to the cloud.
