What you need to know about IaaS Cloud Computing

September 13, 2011

In cloud computing we all know that there are three layers of Cloud Stack: Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS), Software-as-a-Service (SaaS), and of course Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS). But when it comes to IaaS, it is more considered as the base of the other cloud services.

I came across this interesting article on techno-pulse.com about IaaS and found some interesting facts about this interesting infrastructure.

Here are some of the highlights you need to know about IaaS:

  • It saves on operation costs by allowing you to pay for the resources you utilize
  • Flexible resource manageability for easy scalability
  • Elastic load balancing
