Discover the power and freedom of public cloud computing

Cloud computing Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) can provide nearly unlimited on-demand capacity for scale-out applications and can be implemented with an extraordinarily low upfront investment when compared to traditional IT. This allows your business to respond with IT capability in a fraction of the time it takes with conventional IT, invest in capacity only as-needed, and reduce the risk of investing upfront in compelling business opportunities that are in test-market phase. Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) enables your organization to deploy business applications to users quickly and easily at a low incremental cost per user and without the need to manage underlying IT infrastructure. Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) provides you the ability to develop applications targetted to a simplified platform rather than directly to IT infrastructure you must maintain.
