Enterprise IT Cloud Program

Overview: 

The Cloud Program provides access to cloud-based IT Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) and Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) for easy and rapid acquisition, development, and scaling of resources. Cloud computing meets users’ needs in a secure manner without the requirement to purchase and maintain physical hardware. The Cloud Program lets you focus on your own services, research, or end users by reducing the administrative and technical debt associated with purchasing, powering, and maintaining servers.

IaaS and PaaS replace up-front infrastructure expenses with low variable costs that scale to individualized needs. Users no longer need to plan for and procure servers and other IT infrastructure weeks or months in advance. Instead, cloud computing can instantly spin up thousands of servers in minutes to deliver, store, or share data.
