IaaS Introduction (Infrastructure as a Service)



IaaS, or Infrastructure as a Service, revolves around moving your core infrastructure equipment to the cloud. No longer do companies need to buy and maintain, Telephone Systems, Servers, Firewalls, Surveillance Systems on their premises. They can now purchase the services like any utility. This provides enormous benefit to the company, but is likely to result in lower requirements for IT staffing.

  1. It's funny how technology is coming full circle. When I learned about Cloud computing it made me think about the mainframes from back in the 80's. Where you accessed your data from a dumb terminal or if you were remote logging from home to a university, corporate or government site.

  2. Thank you Eli… I ran into your tutorials/classes by accident and now I find myself returning on a daily basis. Thanks for teaching and explaining the different IT specialization technologies that I'm currently looking to learn about and what area I want to work/specialize my career around.

  3. Thank you for this explanation ! Imagining the building of a cloud provider with racks and servers, as the infrastructre (and thats it) really helped!

  4. Eli, as mentioned in SAAS or PAAS services, while talking about IAAS you didn't say about migration related issues. Is migration easier with IAAS comparitively. Thanks a lot for another great class 🙂

  5. I loved the joke towards the end of the video 😛 How you mentioned that "the job might move up into the cloud" haha !!

  6. I am studying aaS concepts for a job and you made IaaS so easy to understand. I finally got my aha moment. Thank you so much!!!
