Key Benefits of Infrastructure-as-a-Service

Jelastic Cloud Infrastructure (IaaS)

The architecture of the solution is built out of service bricks that can be plugged in or disabled based on the specific needs of the project. Below you can check the map of the core components of Jelastic Cloud Infrastructure, how they are interconnected and in what way can be used.

Virtualization and storage for ISVs, SMEs, telcos and service providers.
Hyper-converged computing with full lifecycle control over VMs and advanced Windows guest support.

Frequently Asked Questions

What programming languages are supported by Jelastic?

Infrastructure as Service (or IaaS) is the basic layer in the cloud computing model, which provides a hardware server for you to work with. It handles the base requirements of hosting, such as networking, firewalls, IP addresses, load balancing, storage, virtualization, etc. However, it still requires additional software to be installed and configured (OS, runtime, application) to efficiently run business projects.

What is the difference between IaaS and PaaS?

The most distinct difference is that IaaS builds a foundation for hosting (manage networking, storage, servers, etc.), and PaaS is a layer above that additionally helps to create and develop applications (provides middleware stacks - application servers, databases, etc).

In other words, IaaS gives more freedom allowing you to manage OS and runtime for your applications manually. The downside is the time and expenses required for configuration and maintenance. On the other hand, PaaS provides you with pre-configured options of ready-to-go runtimes, allowing you to focus on your application solely.

Is IaaS public cloud?

IaaS or infrastructure as service is a basic cloud computing model, which is utilized by numerous public clouds. Service providers that use the IaaS model handle networking, storage, and virtualization for you. Simultaneously, it allows you to configure an application infrastructure freely, i.e. just for your particular needs.

Among the leading IaaS providers are Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft Azure, Google Cloud Platform, IBM Cloud, Alibaba Cloud, Oracle Cloud, Virtustream, CenturyLink, and Rackspace.

Why is IaaS required?

IaaS is required to manage the basic demands of any hosting by taking care of physical servers, storage, and networking for you. This allows developers to dive into software configuration and development, skipping all the administration tasks. Herewith, other cloud computing models (PaaS and SaaS) include the features provided by IaaS and extend them with additional automation (in a cost of limiting flexibility). In such a way, IaaS can be considered as an obligatory required core of any cloud hosting.

What are the benefits of IaaS?

Benefits of implementing an environment based on the IaaS model:

  • Save Time - the hardware behind your IaaS system is managed by the hosting provider, which minimize the time/cost required for such maintenance and focus on your software development
  • Scalability - resources for the IaaS projects are delivered on-demand without delay or wastage of the unused capacity
  • Flexibility - installations based on IaaS offers the most freedom over the provided software and hardware
