What is infrastructure as a service term?

Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) refers to a type of cloud computing that provides digital computing resources over the internet. IaaS is part of 3 main types of cloud services, along with Software as a Service (SaaS), and platform as a service (PaaS). Examples of IaaS are backend functions like Amazon Web Services (AWS), Zapier, , Docker, etc.

It’s one of the most common cloud service delivery models, in which a customer pays a third-party cloud service provider for “access” to their IT infrastructure.

You won’t need an on-site system, and you won’t have to worry about managing physical servers or their components.

Examples of IaaS

  • Amazon Web Services (AWS) is a subscription-based cloud computing platform that can be used on-demand. AWS assists customers with data storage and content delivery.
