Who Uses IaaS?
IaaS is becoming increasingly popular across all industries, and its range of uses is expanding. The core IaaS user base includes IT operators, applications IT, DevOps teams, systems and database administrators, and full-stack developers at businesses that build and run applications. It is also used by businesses that want a flexible cloud infrastructure to support their ERP, financial, supply chain, and other internal applications.
Initially, IaaS was used primarily by cloud native organizations for workloads that were temporary, experimental, or that might change unexpectedly. Today, many large enterprises are drawn by the benefits of IaaS and are increasingly moving to the model to support their mission-critical back-office, systems of record, and other workloads.
When it comes to innovation, IaaS is also becoming a favored solution. Companies that still maintain their data centers on premises find it very difficult and expensive to extend beyond just keeping things running. To innovate and stay competitive in the marketplace, forward-looking organizations are moving their data centers to the cloud. By taking advantage of IaaS, they can free up their talent and resources to deliver the innovation they envision and grow their business.
