Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS)

Infrastructure-as-a-Service

Accelerate IT service delivery for faster innovation

IaaS gives users self-service, on-demand access to IT resources based on business policy. Automated provisioning lets users access the infrastructure they need in minutes instead of weeks or months. The result: Greater agility and operational efficiencies make IT more responsive to the business.

  • Access public clouds to enable capacity on demand and pay-as-you-go pricing.
  • Virtualize to optimize resources and create an open foundation for your private or public cloud.
  • Adopt a portable operating system across your infrastructure.
