Cloud computing: why migrate to the clouds?
Posted 4 Months ago
You're probably using cloud computing right now, without even realising it.
In fact, if you use an online service to send e-mails, edit documents, watch movies, or store images, chances are you're using the cloud in the background. ABAKUS IT-SOLUTIONS now offers several cloud-deployment models and strategies to meet each user's specific needs.
IaaS, PaaS, SaaS, FaaS. No, you're not browsing through the catalogue of a large Swedish retailer—these are ABAKUS IT-SOLUTIONS’s four most popular services. Let's look at each one in turn.
IaaS: Infrastructure as a Service
Infrastructure as a Service offers the highest level of flexibility and of management control over IT resources. It usually provides access to networking facilities, computers, and data-storage space. It is just like the IT resources that IT departments and developers have always worked with, and it is therefore the simplest to understand.
PaaS: Platform as a Service
This is a service that makes life easier for companies. It eliminates the need to manage the underlying infrastructure (hardware and operating systems) and lets you focus on managing your applications without having to worry about resource provisioning, capacity planning, software maintenance, patching, or anything else that affects how your application runs.
SaaS: Software as a Service
SaaS usually means end-user applications. ABAKUS IT-SOLUTIONS goes one step farther: with SaaS from us, you don't have to worry about managing the service or the underlying infrastructure. All you need to think about is how to use the particular software involved, and we take care of the rest.
FaaS: Function as a Service
These services have a surprisingly wide range of uses. They are particularly suitable for developing microservices: they can be used for both scheduled tasks and the processing of web requests, and they allow you to deploy a single application function rather than the whole application, and for just a few seconds.
Each type of cloud service and deployment method thus offers different levels of control, flexibility, and management. As a partner of AWS and Microsoft 365, ABAKUS IT-SOLUTIONS explains the differences between and among Iaas, PaaS, SaaS and FaaS, to help you choose the set of services you need to further increase agility, enable scalability, and innovate.
