How it Works?
In the IaaS technology, the cloud service provider hosts the IaaS infrastructure components that are traditionally present in a data center including network hardware, servers, storage and the virtualization of the hypervisor layer. The IaaS provider also provides a wide range of services to accompany the infrastructure components.
In physical terms, the cloud service provider extracts the pool of hardware resource from a group of servers and networks that are usually spread across various data centers and the cloud service provider is responsible for managing all the resources.
IaaS provider also offers relative services to the users for supporting the infrastructure components that include monitoring, detailed billing, security, load balancing, clustering along with storage services like data backup, replication and recovery. IaaS technology is focused at enabling the users to implement higher levels of automation for the crucial infrastructure tasks.
