Cloud computing encompasses a lot of different technologies but the two biggest categories are Software as a Service (apps) and Infrastructure as a Service (servers). The IaaS providers make a very convincing argument for businesses to stop running their own data centers and simply purchase server capacity on-demand and scale up and down as needed.
Infrastructure as a Service is the subject of a special feature from ZDNet and TechRepublic. We have combined to produce a series of resources to help IT decision makers better understand the topic and make good decisions about IaaS. In this video, TechRepublic editor in chief Jason Hiner and Tech Pro Research managing editor Bill Detwiler provide a Q&A on IaaS that includes information about the latest research on IaaS adoption and tackling the big question of public cloud versus private/hybrid cloud.
