Infrastructure as a Service

A common challenge for most businesses is to stay nimble and responsive while, at the same time, ensuring that ever-increasing pressure on IT budgets are met.

As it is not possible to create competitive advantage from owning IT infrastructure, the opportunity to “rent” your required resource, as and when it is required, while only paying for what is actually used, is a compelling argument. It is very difficult for your firm to “right-size” your hardware resources.  There tends to be either too much or too little.  Expansion of resource is often a lengthy process. An infrastructure as a service business model provides rapid provisioning and scalable resource with a competitive variable cost pricing model.
