What is a Virtual Data Centre?

Overview

Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) provides a convenient solution for small to medium businesses. Bringing greater flexibility, ease of administration and cost savings to organisations. This post will talk about why your business needs to use Infrastructure as a Service and some of the business benefits that you’ll see.

So what is a Virtual Data Centre, AKA Infrastructure as a Service?

Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) is the most straightforward of cloud services. It is the virtual delivery of servers and resources in the form of compute, network and storage services. IaaS enables businesses to leverage our hardware/software resources rather than having to sacrifice their own capital to move into the cloud.

If you haven’t done so already, I’d highly recommend signing up for our online demo where you can experience the full power of a cloud based Virtual Data Centre.
