Infrastructure as a service (IaaS) is a standardised, highly automated offering, where compute resources, complemented by storage and networking capabilities are owned and hosted by K3 Hosting and offered to customers on-demand. Customers are able to self-provision this infrastructure, using a Web-based graphical user interface that serves as an IT operations management console for the overall environment. API access to the infrastructure may also be offered as an option.

Delivering an IT service that can adapt to business needs without significant capital investment is a constant challenge.  Constantly having to invest in datacentre infrastructure and maintenance is no longer cost-efficient for most organisations.

K3 Hosting’s Infrastructure as a Service solves these problems. You can pay monthly for hosted server, network and storage services according to usage allowing you to free up capital budget, deliver service levels that exceed service requirements and leave your IT team free from operational tasks to focus on business development projects and testing.

The K3 Hosting IaaS offering is a hosted Enterprise Class Cloud Service that is built on the very best technologies with options available for dedicated or shared infrastructure resources. Each customer gets a secure virtual datacentre with contracted service level agreements based on things that matter to you and your users.
