What is Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS)?

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 hardware, network and storage services. This enables our partners to leverage our hardware/software resources rather than having to sacrifice their business's capital to break into the cloud industry.

We were enticed to the people first of all, then the technology after that - they got what we wanted to achieve ... the gut feeling straight away was that we wanted to work with these guys!
