Cloud as a Service
What is Cloud as a Service?
Cloud as a Service refers to the model of hosting cloud services through a cloud computing provider’s servers rather than on a company’s dedicated servers. This model allows the company to easily scale up and down while only paying for the services they use.
Why Cloud as a Service?
The Cloud as a Service model enables your company to:
- Scale up immediately. When necessary, you can scale up your cloud services in minutes, rather than in months.
- Reduced your risk. Keep key workloads on-premises and IT in control.
- Zero cost of overprovisioning. Never pay for what you don’t use above the minimum capacity commitment.
- Extend your team. Get help from the cloud computing support team to plan your needs and simplify your hybrid cloud.
- Simplify your environment. Limit yourself to one portal, one contract, and one invoice.
What does the Cloud as a Service model look like in practice?
Leveraging consumption-based IT from HPE GreenLake, Nokia Software accelerates research and development (R&D) output to lead the 5G revolution with a private cloud as a service built on all-flash HPE 3PAR storage and HPE BladeSystem compute. As a result, Nokia Software maximizes performance and reduces capital expenses, while also reducing its environmental footprint.
