Servers & Storage

As businesses adopt more and more digital practices, moves away from the traditional on-premise servers and storage environments to power the core business services gathers pace.

For many, the move to cloud computing has already begun, if not entirely then at least into a hybrid environment. Either way, moving at least some servers and storage capacity to the cloud has become the norm, and inevitable for most organisations.

To give it it’s full title, Infrastructure-as-a-Service offers essential compute, storage and networking resources on demand, on a pay-as-you-go basis. In the IaaS model, cloud providers host the infrastructure components traditionally residing in an on-premise data centre, including servers, storage and networking hardware, allowing users to scale quickly to meet demands.

According to global IT distributor, Ingram Micro, IaaS is growing faster than any other segment of the cloud services market, with Gartner predicts that growth will continue at over 28% pa for at least the next 5 years.

But what does this mean for you and your business? In this section of the MYREDFORT Community, we look at what cloud computing is and why it’s becoming one of the fastest growing global technologies.
