4 Quality Companies Offering Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS)
Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) has gained a lot of traction in the tech world today. So many companies are looking to promote complex and often difficult to program features on their website which means hiring expensive developers and architects: costs that they often can’t afford. Instead they can use a technology company’s existing infrastructure and then make a few adjustments to fit their own needs.
Right now, there are several leaders in the industry that you should know if you’re considering trying this out for your own business. You’ll recognize most (if not all) of these names, because they’re the ones who have the clout to make this available for an affordable price.
Amazon Web Services
Is there anything Amazon can’t do? Currently they’re the leader in terms of storage capacity, a must when you’re working with large amounts of data. Their services tend to be a bit more generalized though, so if you’re working with highly sensive information like health records, etc then you may end up paying a larger premium with them because of the extra architectural work they’ll need to do to.
It’s no shock that Google is constantly pushing the envelope when it comes to people’s experience online. They’re not interested in burying information or making things complicated for everyone. By the very nature of technology, it can still seem like a scary world to navigate but Google is helping to get more companies feeling comfortable and confident. If you’re already planning to start in the cloud, then they’re the right choice for you. Their platform is a solid mix of different applications which make their IaaS run smarter and faster.
You won’t be surprised to hear that this works best if you’re already using Microsoft’s suite and services, but they’re also a strong competitor with Amazon for their capacity. Batch computing or cloud applications will do well with their particular design.
If you have general company needs to attend to, then try VMware. Introduced in 2013, it’s gained a lot of traction within the business community. Again, this works best for people already using VMware applications on a regular basis.
