Infrastructure as a Service
In this era of virtualization, cloud computing has made a big impact on the IT industry. Setting up your infrastructure somewhere in the world and accessing it remotely is bliss.
Infrastructure as a service (IaaS) can be considered one of the cloud models which is revolutionizing cloud computing by proving itself as a best service delivery models amongst all.
Infrastructure as a service (IaaS) is one of cloud computing models which provides, virtualized computing resources like hardware, storage, servers and networks over the internet which is accessible from anywhere and anytime.
IaaS include services like scaling, resource provisioning, disaster recovery, replication, backup, etc. These services are charged on the basis of pay-per use over a period of day, week or a month.

I have tried everything to get it back up and running.I was advised by the previous user that all she did was try to update WordPress as advised, it then went blank and wouldn’t let her back in.

Benefits of IaaS:
With infrastructure as a service you can scale up and scale down the infrastructure as per the resource demand. This on-demand feature provides flexibility and agility to respond to unexpected requirements. Such environment plays an important role for development and testing scenarios.
The organizations that are not willing to invest a huge amount into their hardware & infrastructure, finds IaaS as the ideal solution to their problem as, it doesn’t involve any capital cost. End users will only pay for operating cost as they will be hiring the IT infrastructure from cloud provider datacenters.
Infrastructure can be accessed over the internet from anywhere and anytime with any device.
Utility based Service:
IaaS is a utility based service model which means ‘pay-per-use’. Services can be used as they are required and can be dropped when not required. For example, suppose you want some compute resources for testing a web application, you can rent them as long as you need them, once the testing is done, you won’t need that resources anymore. In that case you need to free those resources so that won’t be charged for them when not in use.
IaaS provides infrastructure services to organizations across all the sectors to place IT resources to their business with a very less cost. It has been proving itself beneficial with reduced budgets and changing industry scenarios.
