What is Cloud Infrastructure?
Cloud infrastructure, or cloud computing, is the provision of computing resources from a remote location, away from the physical position of the user. Understanding exactly what these resources include is not always straightforward, even to IT professionals. The cloud is a perfect solution for any organization with complex, demanding and mission-critical computing requirements including: Application Servers, Mail Servers, Web Servers, Load Balancers, and Firewalls.
The Resources Offered via Cloud Infrastructure
The backbone of a cloud infrastructure is its cloud servers. These are high-powered, virtual machines that can be tailored to your organization’s individual needs. Due to the virtual nature of cloud servers, cloud users are free from having to maintain the underlying machinery, but merely need to select CPU power, RAM, storage, firewalls, load balancers and other features as desired.
To make cloud infrastructure as simple, modular and cost effective as possible, Kamatera has separated its cloud infrastructure into distinct products. Products can be purchased as and when you need them, for as long as you need them. Some products can even be customized to your specific requirements (for example CPU and memory) while others are fixed (for example load balancers and firewalls). Kamatera’s main products are:
- Cloud Server
- Cloud Block Storage
- Cloud Server with Web hosting panel
- Cloud Load Balancer
- Cloud Firewall
- Cloud Virtual Private Network (VPN)
- Cloud Software Licensing
- Managed Cloud Server
- Managed Microsoft Applications
- Migration Service
- Disaster Recovery
- Consulting and Training
Cloud, Internet and Infrastructure - and IaaS
Cloud Infrastructure combines the most advanced hardware and communications equipment available with the scope and accessibility of the internet. Cloud Infrastructure is offered to companies as the most comprehensive, reliable and flexible solution for business computing available, hence the term IaaS – Infrastructure as a Service.
