Lately, many people are
seeming to be getting a much clearer understanding about the different kinds of cloud deployments (private, community, public
and hybrid), but one area where I still many people getting mixed up a little, describes the definition of
What IS IaaS?....really, what is it????
IaaS includes all the system services that make up the foundation layer of a cloud—the
server, computing, operating system, storage, data back-up and networking services. IaaS supports the Platform-as-a-Service
(PaaS) layer, which includes the development tools you use to build, modify and deploy cloud optimized applications,
and Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) layer, which includes the business applications.
While the definition of the IaaS layer is pretty easy to understand,
there are some confusing areas where you need to ask questions: resiliency, restoration, disaster recovery, and security.
Resiliency refers to the stability
of the foundation and whether it is built to enterprise standards;
Restoration refers to the ability to restore your data
quickly after, say, the release of application software updates that damages data;
Disaster recovery refers to the
ability to get your business operations back online following a catastrophic event, whether it is a natural disaster, or an
errant backhoe clawing through the power lines somewhere on the electrical grid, and finally.......
Security refers to the architecture
for monitoring the access, use, disclosure, disruption, modification and destruction of data by users and programs and whether
those security capabilities are “baked in.”
