3 Benefits You Should Be Getting from IaaS

The benefits of managed IaaS (Infrastructure as a Service) are widely acknowledged; its speed, flexibility, and high availability are commonly praised. But maybe your business hasn’t made the transition to cloud-based storage or a comprehensive IaaS plan, and you’re still deciding between many options. Or perhaps the solution you’ve chosen doesn’t seem to be living up to the bold claims which initially piqued your interest.

In this post, we’ll examine some of the most important benefits of IaaS, and how you can be sure that your IT provider is truly helping you to make the most of your infrastructure.

1) IaaS is cost-effective

IaaS is widely praised for being significantly less expensive than the cap-ex hardware investments of the past. Because you can rapidly provision new servers and increase your storage, you can buy what you need for now, and add more as and when you need.

To get the best return on investment from IaaS, you should be looking for a provider who is clear on their prices and offers the most valuable support possible. At SysGroup, we offer a completely transparent pricing structure to help you meet the strictest budget constraints, and we will work with you to make sure you never pay more than you need for your IT solution.

2) IaaS helps you shift your IT focus

It is commonly said that an IaaS provider will take care of your day-to-day IT headaches so your team can focus on what you do best. This is true, but in 2018, there is so much more that IaaS can do for your business beyond IT troubleshooting. If you are a CIO, your focus is to build a platform for your customers to have an amazing experience with your business, not just to build apps or an IT infrastructure.

Your IaaS provider should be offering you new solutions to work more efficiently and function as a trusted partner to develop your IT infrastructure. At SysGroup, we want to partner with you to help you accomplish your business or organisation’s goals. We run workshops and diagnostic sessions to truly understand your goals and how we can help your IT infrastructure work smarter for you.

3) IaaS is flexible

IaaS is always described as ‘flexible.’ You can use any combination of public, private, or hybrid clouds, and the options seem endless.

But are you certain that you’re making the most of the options you have with cloud-based storage and computing? If your provider offered you a one-size-fits-all package, you’re probably not using IaaS to your advantage.

As a cloud-agnostic service provider, our expert team members will help you choose the right solution from our trusted partners. Whether you require load balancing, secure cloud storage, data migration or on-going IT support, we’ll make sure that you are getting the most from your IaaS package.
