The IT infrastructure can be built by 2 different types
Mostly you find the traditional infrastructure in private homes, but also in companies. These are facilities and data centres and the associated equipment. However, the disadvantage is that the necessary equipment takes up a lot of space in a company and is also more expensive than other infrastructure options.
IT infrastructure from the cloud
With an intelligent cloud system, numerous advantages arise for the user. These represent a real alternative to purchasing their own hardware, not only for smaller or medium-sized companies, but also for larger ones. There are no costs for the procurement of equipment. Operation and maintenance are also taken over by the cloud provider. The user is only responsible for installing and maintaining the software.
Private IaaS Cloud
In a private IaaS cloud, strategies based on the public cloud are applied via a private data centre of the company. The in-house IT department is seen by the users as a service provider. This means that individual departments can easily use certain resources via a self-service platform. As with a public cloud system, internal billing depends on usage. Only defined users from the company can access the private cloud. External access by outsiders is not possible. The intelligent IT infrastructure is also equipped with high security standards.
The Hybrid IaaS Cloud combines the Private IaaS Cloud with the Public IaaS Cloud. Since the IT infrastructure can be distributed on servers of both the private and the public cloud, various advantages of both cloud models are available. On the one hand, data can be presented very clearly, while sensitive information is ideally protected.
IaaS is ideal for companies whose IT infrastructure needs change frequently, as the cloud can be flexibly adapted. For example, if you need additional capacity to respond quickly to increasing demand, you don’t have to wait for new hardware to be integrated. Simply book additional capacity flexibly.

Minimise IT infrastructure risks
Malicious programmes and viruses are on the increase and do not stop at companies. Since the use of a cloud always involves the Internet, it is essential to minimise risks in the IT infrastructure. Those who have their own in-house IT can often have possible dangers or damage eliminated quickly. However, if the IT is outsourced, you are dependent on your provider. Cloud service providers usually have suitable software to keep risks as low as possible. However, the internet connection can in turn suffer.
IT infrastructure and its legal complexity
Cloud computing is a highly complex field due to its global expansion. The following points must always be considered and not forgotten:
In which country is the server located? This is of great importance from a legal point of view. Here, it should always be ensured that a provider has a transparently communicated company headquarters. Because which law is applied always depends on the respective target country. But the EU also specifies some rules that every data centre must adhere to.
Private and public clouds
With private clouds, the customer is responsible for complying with all important regulations. With publicly accessible public clouds, compliance with uniform laws is rather difficult. It is practically difficult to implement that cloud customers regularly check to what extent their service provider fulfils all technical or legal requirements, even if the new data protection regulation requires this. However, this is not only problematic in terms of practical implementation, but also in terms of costs. Moreover, it is difficult for the parties involved to claim the status of personal data. Whether agreed services are to be seen more as a service or more as a tenancy is another legal problem of IT infrastructure.
