IaaS provider’s supply a virtual server instance and storage. Users have an allocated storage capacity and can start, stop, access and configure the VM and storage as desired. These are small, medium, large and extra-large instances which allows the customer to pick it as per his requirement.
IaaS platforms offer highly scalable resources that can be adjusted on-demand. This makes IaaS well-suited for workloads that are temporary, experimental or change unexpectedly.
IaaS customers pay on a per-use basis, typically by the hour, week or month. Some providers also charge customers based on the amount of virtual machine space they use. This pay-as-you-go model eliminates the capital expense of deploying in-house hardware and software.
