Lower IT Spending by 33% and Increase End-User Happiness by 32% With Cloud-Enabled Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS)
Managing your own IT infrastructure is beginning to become a burden, and for some organizations, an unbearable one. Many enterprises are faced with tasks that range from extending legacy assets in an attempt to gain more value out of data to building dynamic applications that scale rapidly. Traditionally, these mandates would be accomplished by building more servers with an expanded IT team managing them. But as the amount of data used by technology companies grows in both size and complexity, traditional infrastructure solutions are becoming less and less viable.
Your organization will have to make a choice: stick to the status quo by adding to your already-bloated data centre while expanding your IT team, or find a better way.
Enter infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS). Cloud providers who offer IaaS solutions leverage cloud services as an alternative to on-premises IT infrastructure. The benefits of IaaS have already been realized by thousands of companies worldwide and have been well-documented:
- Over 33% of businesses using IaaS experienced faster application and server deployments1
- Businesses using IaaS and virtual storage are 9 times more likely to see a significant reduction in storage costs than those that are not using IaaS
- IaaS is more reliable, with 49% of organizations making use of IaaS seeing a reduction in application downtime1
- End-users of IT storage resources are 32% more likely to be happy with the service than those without virtual storage, resulting in happier customers and business partners1
- Enterprises employing IaaS have been found to be 33% more likely to see a reduction in overall IT spending1
While the benefits are manifold, an IaaS solution can be complicated to implement. Depending on your business’s needs, some types of data should be stored on-premises to be managed by your IT team, while other types would benefit greatly by migrating to an IaaS solution. If you can see the benefits of IaaS for your organization, but aren’t exactly sure how it would look in practice, don’t worry; we wrote Disruption Defined – What Your Business Needs to Know About Moving to the Cloud just for you.
