What is Infrastructure-as-a-Service Solutions Software?

Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) Solutions Software is a type of cloud computing service that enables organizations to store, manage, access, and process their data remotely rather than housing it on-premises.

The infrastructure associated with IaaS tools comes in a variety of forms, including public clouds, virtual machines (VMs), bare metal servers, and high-performance computing (HPC).

Hosting services in the cloud helps with scalability and reducing operational costs. Companies can “rent” space on the cloud through a pay-as-you-go or utilization-based model as opposed to putting up large upfront costs to build out their own server.

Infrastructure management also falls to the cloud service provider (CSP), which can also reduce overhead and staffing needs.

Platform as a service (PaaS) and general software as a service (SaaS) represent other pillars of the “aaS” trio, with IaaS representing the cloud computing version.

To categorically fit as IaaS software, it must include:

  • Hosted third-party infrastructure
  • Operation on a pay-as-you-go model or based on space or feature utilization
  • Facilitate the running of virtualization, storage, computing, or other core infrastructure tasks and needs
  • Provide performance tracking and live usage statistics
