What Is IaaS?

►  IaaS   is an acronym that stands for:   Infrastructure as a Service

►  IaaS   is defined as:   Delivery of computer infrastructure – typically a platform virtualisation environment – as a service, along with raw (block) storage and networking. Rather than purchasing servers, software, data-center space or network equipment, clients instead buy those resources as a fully outsourced service. Suppliers typically bill such services on a utility computing basis; the amount of resources consumed (and therefore the cost) will typically reflect the level of activity.
