Infrastructure as a service (IaaS) is one of the major components of cloud computing. It offers managed infrastructure, including storage, network, and servers, to support non-production as well as production applications environments. A third party or the host handles the system backup and maintenance processes, increasing flexibility and control. In an IaaS model, users can access the application of their choice via the cloud itself, without in-house constraints. Moreover, IaaS enables companies to shift applications away from data centers, minimizing the hardware costs involved.
