Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) in Oxford
IaaS keeps your business operations scalable without the overheads
What is IaaS?
CIS’s Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) in Oxford is our service model that delivers computer infrastructure hosted on the CIS Private Cloud to support our clients’ business operations. IaaS provides hardware, storage, servers and data centre space or network components and may also include software.
Buying and managing your own physical server can be very complex as well as expensive. IaaS removes the need for an on-site server as it is hosted in the CIS Private Cloud. Each resource is offered as a separate service component, and you only need to rent each one for however long you need to. CIS manages the infrastructure, leaving its clients free to purchase, configure and manage their software which includes operating systems and applications.
- Easy to use
- Improves business continuity
Benefits of IaaS
There are many benefits of using IaaS from CIS:
When used alongside our backup & disaster recovery services, it will improve business continuity and disaster recovery. Creating business continuity and disaster recovery during an outage is expensive, as it usually requires a significant amount of technology and dedicated staff. IaaS can significantly reduce this cost, allowing you to access your files, applications and data as usual.
Testing and development – you can quickly set up and dismantle test environments – bringing ideas to market faster. IaaS allows you to respond more quickly to shifting business conditions. Our clients can rapidly scale up resources to accommodate an increase in demand then reduce the resources back down again when activity decreases and frees up your team to focus on core business rather than on IT infrastructure.
With IaaS, there’s no need to maintain and upgrade software and hardware or troubleshoot equipment problems. The CIS support team is there to handle all of that for you.
