Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) is one of the types of cloud computing, that offers virtualized compute, storage, network and other resources via internet. At Pi DATACENTERS we manage and support the underlying infra of our SDDC, this allows enterprises to concentrate on their core business, and to bring down capital expenditure (CapEx). Our enterprise-class, award-winning, true blue Indian cloud platform, Harbour1® is powered by SUSE and is built on OpenStack. As soon as the user launches an instance, it automatically generates the necessary compute infrastructure, with specific requirements, within a minute.
