Cloud Data Center is a revolutionary IaaS for your Business
Cloud Data Center is IaaS (Infrastructure as a Service) offering for creating and managing private and public clouds. Virtual data centers enable companies to create and provision instances of Virtual Servers using flexible resource allocation according to the company's actual needs. Cloud data center can be utilized by company to create cost effective and easily scalable IT solutions where the complexities and expenses of managing the underlying hardware are outsourced to the cloud provider. If the scale of a company’s operations fluctuate, or they are looking to expand, they can ask for more cloud resources and when they need it rather than purchase, install and integrate hardware themselves.
Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) is a form of cloud computing that provides virtualized computing resources over the Internet.
In the case of IaaS (Infrastructure As A Service) the computing resource provided is specifically that of virtualised hardware, in other words, computing infrastructure.
In an IaaS model, we hosts hardware, software, servers, storage and other infrastructure components on behalf of our users. We also host users' applications and handle tasks including system maintenance, backup and resiliency planning.
IaaS platforms offer highly scalable resources that can be adjusted on-demand. This makes IaaS well-suited for workloads that are temporary, experimental or change unexpectedly.
Other characteristics of IaaS environments include the automation of administrative tasks, dynamic scaling, desktop virtualization and policy-based services.
IaaS customers pay on a per-use basis, typically by the hour, week or month. This pay-as-you-go model eliminates the capital expense of deploying in-house hardware and software.
Create a dedicated private network
Companies are considered independent tenants with their own private infrastructure in the Cloud Data Center. Each company is assigned an isolated class-C private network. A dedicated Cloud Gateway is automatically provisioned during tenant initialization and provides connectivity between the underlying Cloud Data Center network and external networks. Cloud Gateway can be upgraded to provide more advanced network services, such as Firewall NAT/Access rules, load balancing and VPN connectivity to an on premise infrastructure.
The following are salient examples of how IaaS can be utilised by company:
- Enterprise infrastructure; by internal business networks, such as private clouds and virtual local area networks, which utilize pooled server and networking resources and in which a business can store their data and run the applications they need to operate day-to-day. Expanding businesses can scale their infrastructure in accordance with their growth whilst private clouds (accessible only by the business itself) can protect the storage and transfer of the sensitive data that some businesses are required to handle.
- Virtual Data Centers (VDC); a virtualized network of interconnected virtual servers which can be used to offer enhanced cloud hosting capabilities, company IT infrastructure or to integrate all of these operations within either a private or public cloud implementation.
A typical Cloud Data Center (IaaS) offering can deliver the following features and benefits:
- Scalability; resources are available as and when the company needs it and, therefore, there are no delays in expanding capacity or the wastage of unused capacity.
- No investment in hardware; the underlying physical hardware that supports a Cloud Data Center (IaaS) service is set up and maintained by the cloud provider, saving the time and cost of doing.
- Utility style costing; the service can be accessed on demand and the company only pays for the resource that actually use.
- Location independence; the service can usually be accessed from any location as long as there is an internet connection and the security protocol of the cloud allows it
- Physical security of data center locations; services available through a public cloud, or private clouds hosted externally with the cloud provider, benefit from the physical security afforded to the servers which are hosted within a data center.
- No single point of failure; if one server or network switch, for example, were to fail, the broader service would be unaffected due to the remaining multitude of hardware resources and redundancy configurations. For many services if one entire data center were to go offline, never mind one server, the IaaS service could still run successfully.
