Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) Overview

What is Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) Solutions?

Platform as a service (PaaS) software is a complete development and deployment environment in the cloud. It provides a platform on which software can be developed and deployed. The platform handles the complexity around operating systems and servers and leaves application developers free to concentrate on the business requirements of the software.

Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) Features & Capabilities

  • Uptime percentage offered in SLA

  • Ease of scaling up or down in response to consumer needs

  • Administration automation for deploying and managing virtual desktops and servers

  • Elastic load balancing whereby resources are balanced and distributed automatically across multiple virtual computers

  • Preconfigured templates for virtual machines

  • Monitoring tools providing alerts when problems are detected

  • Customized machine images

  • Range of operating systems available as preconfigured images

  • Compliance with security protocols like SSL and AES


Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) is similar to Software as a Service (SaaS) and Infrastructure as a Service (PaaS), in that is provides services to consumers over the Internet.


IaaS operates at a very fundamental level, providing the basic building blocks for cloud services. IaaS can be thought of as the provisioning of basic cloud infrastructures like virtualized servers, storage, and networking in an on-demand model. This on-demand model can easily scale up and down to meet demand. Instead of having to spend capital resources on hardware and infrastructure, rapidly scalable, and secure infrastructure components are accessible over the Internet. These resources and paid for based on consumption, as in a utility model like electricity or water.


Some providers also offer other components above the virtualization layer like databases and messaging queues, but these are not standard components.

Pricing Details

Pricing models vary quite a bit, but the basic structure is usually price per user per month, with different tiers based on differing factors such as the number of custom app objects, or number of servers. Some vendors provide a free tier, but per user, pricing varies from $50 per month per user to $750 per user per month or more, depending on platform capabilities.
