Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS)

Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) is a cloud computing model that provides virtualized computing resources over the internet. In the context of cloud storage, IaaS includes the provision of virtualized storage infrastructure, such as servers, networking, and storage resources, on a pay-as-you-go basis.

With IaaS, organizations can leverage cloud service providers to access and manage storage resources remotely without the need to invest in and maintain physical hardware. This includes provisioning storage capacity, managing data storage, and accessing storage services via web-based interfaces or APIs.

IaaS providers offer scalable storage solutions that allow organizations to easily increase or decrease storage capacity based on demand. This flexibility enables organizations to adapt their storage resources dynamically to meet changing business requirements, without the constraints of traditional on-premises storage infrastructure.

Overall, IaaS enables organizations to offload the management of storage infrastructure to cloud service providers, reducing capital expenses, improving operational efficiency, and enabling greater agility and scalability in managing storage resources.
