Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) is used to provide access to virtualised computing resources through the web. It is one of the three dominant cloud computing services, along with Software as a Service (SaaS) and Platform as a Service (PaaS). IaaS platforms have scalable components and can be adjusted when necessary. This means that they are ideal for changeable, experimental and temporary workloads. The model works by a third-party hosting users’ software, storage, hardware, and other infrastructure components. User applications are also hosted by IaaS providers, and they also manage tasks such as backup, system maintenance, and resiliency plans. Other features of IaaS comprise automated administration tasks, desktop virtualisation, agile scaling, and policy-based services.
