How IaaS Leads to Transformation in the Cloud


Infrastructure-as-a-Service by Ingram Micro

Infrastructure is critical for any business looking to transform their business in the cloud. Infrastructure-as-a-Service solutions like Compute, Storage, Backup & Disaster Recovery services offer scalability and cost savings that are normally unseen with traditional on-premise solutions.

According to Gartner, the IaaS market was estimated to be a $100 million market in 2015, an increase of 25% over 2014, and in 2016, spending on cloud management and security is expected to grow by 36.6 percent to $82 million.

Ingram Micro partners can provide their customers with a variety of IaaS solutions. In today’s blog post, we’ll take a look at the IaaS products we offer and the value propositions channel partners can share as they help their customers move to the cloud.

Solution 1: Virtualization

Businesses with intensive software workloads can look to virtualization as a scalable and low-cost infrastructure solution. Virtualizing applications enables end users to bypass hardware limitations, save energy, and increase uptime while also extending the life of legacy applications without having to spend the money to upgrade to a new system.  Recent advances in container virtualization technology allow end users to run any application within a virtual environment regardless of operating system.

Solution 2: Storage

Storage infrastructure is the hardware and software components needed to store files and content in the cloud. This solution is powerful because it enables businesses to only pay for the storage they use and allows for accessibility anywhere, anytime. Businesses leveraging storage solutions also offload storage maintenance to a service provider, reducing their risk to data loss in case of a natural disaster or human error.

Solution 3: Backup and Disaster Recovery

It’s common knowledge that data loss can cripple, if not permanently damage the viability of a business. Having a backup and disaster recovery solution is helpful for businesses looking to mitigate harm caused by incidents like natural disasters and human errors. Leading backup and disaster recovery vendors such as Netmagic can give businesses the insurance policy they need to recover their data without too much problem.
