About IaaS

Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) is a model of cloud computing services where clients access virtualized computer resources over the Internet. A cloud provider hosts a Public cloud or Private cloud which the client then accesses for storage or computation purposes. With this cloud infrastructure businesses can store data, run applications or even operating systems on these remote servers. IaaS has the benefit of reducing costs related to maintenance and operation of servers which would otherwise be located in an on-premise environment. By establishing a wide geographical network of data centers, IaaS providers can guarantee low-latency operations for their customers. The leading IaaS providers include Amazon (AWS), Microsoft (Microsoft Azure), and Alibaba. You can find IaaS Market Size, IaaS Market Share, and other trends and statistics below.
