Cloud as a Service (CaaS)

Your business knows what the cloud can do for the organization—agility, flexibility, scalability, savings—and they want to see benefits of the cloud yesterday. However, the activities related to consistently provisioning virtual machines, operating systems, application stacks, and all associated virtual infrastructure can be daunting – especially where the business truly depends on provisioning to drive revenue and reduce costs.

The original appeal of Cloud Computing was “capacity on demand” or excess capacity for seasonal or project based workloads. Cloud has evolved to mean off-premise hosting of applications (SaaS) Infrastructure provisioning (IaaS), and delivery of development platforms (PaaS). Each layer of the Cloud delivery model provides delivery challenges related to complexity, performance and usability.
