Infrastructure as a service (IaaS) is a method of delivering computing, storage, networking and other capabilities over the Internet. IaaS allows companies to use web-based operating systems, applications and storage without having to purchase, manage and support the underlying cloud infrastructure.
The most popular platforms are explained below: Amazon Web Services (AWS) and Microsoft Azure.
Amazon Web Services (AWS) is the world's most flexible, secure and comprehensive cloud platform, offering more than 175 end-to-end data centre services globally. Aiming to reduce costs, increase your agility and innovate faster.
As a result, AWS has a number of services and included features that surpasses any other cloud provider, making it faster, easier and more cost-effective to bring existing applications to the cloud, allowing you to build almost anything you can imagine. It also has the largest and most dynamic community, with millions of active customers and tens of thousands of partners worldwide.
Microsoft Azure is an ever-expanding set of cloud services to help organisations meet their business needs. They give them the freedom to build, manage and deploy applications on a global network with their favourite tools and frameworks.
