What is a Cloud Load Balancer?

Cloud services are on the rise as consumers seek to find better economies of scale leading to lower prices for the technology services that they require. This combined with the added safety of purchasing an “as a service” package means that companies can now gain access to these services without the risk of investment in something they may not later require.

Why invest in Cloud Infrastructure as a Service?

Learn MoreCost Savings
Unlike buying and maintaining proprietary hardware or software load balancing technology where the user pays upfront and is responsible for support and maintenance, a load balancing service in the Cloud only charges for what is used.

The Cloud Infrastructure as a Service model allows clients to pay as they grow which is especially beneficial for start-ups and smaller organisations who may have limited resource to invest in hardware and software initially but will need it nonetheless.

Scalability and Flexibility
As well as cost savings, the cloud service offers clients with high levels of flexibility as they can scale up and down quickly depending on their changing requirements. This is particularly helpful for test environments and can give businesses a real competitive advantage.

Competitiveness
In terms of competitiveness, the cloud infrastructure as a service provides better elasticity for clients meaning that they can get the job done more quickly, leveraging cutting edge, leading technology. As well as this, moving to the cloud will mean that smaller businesses can now compete with larger more established companies due to the scalable aspect of cloud infrastructure as a service.

Business Growth
With the focus shifted from investing time, money and energy into technology decisions and maintenance, this allows for a greater emphasis on business growth and innovation.

Advantages of Cloud Infrastructure as a Service

A key benefit of Cloud computing is the reduced cost involved for the consumer as they pay small amounts monthly instead of a large one off payment initially. Additionally, this will save companies money as they don’t need to invest in dedicated, on-premise IT support staff, they can simply rely on the support from the company they buy the service from.

Disadvantages of Cloud Infrastructure as a Service

As the software and hardware is not owned and managed by the consumer, they must place a high level of trust on their Cloud provider to keep the service running with high availability. As well as this, there are privacy and security risks that the vendor must protect.

Who are the big players in Cloud Infrastructure as a Service?

There are a number of cloud computing vendors. Some of the major players in the marketplace include Amazon Web Services, Microsoft Azure Cloud, HPE Helion and IBM Cloud.
