Identity and Access Management (IAM)

IAM is a web service that helps to securely control access to resources. IAM is used to control who is authenticated (signed in) and authorized (has permissions) to use resources. In Wasabi, IAM includes Policies, Access Keys, Groups, Roles, and Users.

Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS)

IaaS is a cloud computing model for businesses wherein the storage vendor hosts completely virtualized computing resources, network resources, and storage solutions, then provides them to the user as a service to be accessed remotely through the internet.

The Modern Business Benefits of IaaS

Along with SaaS and PaaS, IaaS is one of the three main categories of cloud computing services. Typical IaaS provides customers with a variety of storage, software, data center, and network-based components, and characteristics of IaaS systems can include unique benefits such as dynamic scalability, automated administrative tasks, virtualization technology, and more.

IaaS is a simplified, modern solution that helps organizations avoid unnecessary costs and complexities too often associated with purchasing on-site physical servers. With IaaS, it’s the cloud service provider – such as Wasabi – who is responsible for managing the IaaS infrastructure. Organizations simply rent a space within that service provider’s data center, further ensuring affordability by only charging users to pay for the resources they actually access.

Wasabi offers direct, high-speed connectivity to AWS, Azure, Google Cloud Platform, and other popular IaaS platforms through partnerships with leading colocation, carrier hotel, and exchange providers like Equinix, Flexential, Limelight Networks, Megaport, and more.

Integrated Development Environment (IDE)

An integrated development environment (IDE) is software used to build applications. With IDEs, this is done by combining common developer tools into one consolidated graphical user interface. Some of the most common components of today’s IDEs include things like debugger programs, source code text editors, and automated local build utilities.

Cloud-based IDEs, meanwhile, are SaaS solutions designed to provide unique benefits which local development environments cannot. For example, with cloud IDEs, there’s no need to download software or configure additional local environments, allowing developers to contribute to projects with more uptime and less hassle. In addition, cloud IDEs allow for centrally managed development environments. This means that no actual code resides on an individual developer’s computer, resulting in greater levels of data security and protection.

Wasabi’s Affordable SaaS Solutions for Any IDE Needs

Since IDE is a component of SaaS, which is itself a major component of cloud computing, cloud-based IDEs have completely changed the way modern businesses store and manage their data. For example, Wasabi’s cloud-based SaaS solutions provide companies of all sizes with optimal ease-of-access as their data gets hosted in secure cloud infrastructure, yet always remains fully obtainable via a web browser or API.

As an added bonus, Wasabi’s SaaS solutions charge customers on an easy-to-understand monthly or yearly subscription basis. Compare this to the traditional model of paying for software through a license (one that often includes additional upfront costs and ongoing support fees), and you can see why more and more companies are turning to Wasabi for affordable and hassle-free SaaS data backup.

Internal Cloud

Also known as a “corporate cloud,” the internal cloud is a private cloud computing model that’s implemented within a particular company’s dedicated resources. Internal clouds can apply things like virtual mechanisms, shared storage resources, and also network-powered resources to allow for full internal control of a corporation’s cloud environment.

Wasabi’s Private Cloud Solutions for Internal Cloud Models

Many businesses are using private cloud solutions like internal clouds to support applications with strict performance, security, or compliance requirements. With Wasabi, cloud storage can be accessed directly from corporate data centers over a high-speed, fully secure network connection.

Meanwhile, Wasabi’s flexible connectivity options and extensive industry partnerships allow corporations to combine all the benefits of a private, internal cloud environment with any ancillary public cloud resources. The result? The satisfaction of a wide range of application and budget requirements.

Internet of Things (IoT)

Internet of Things (IoT) is a network of connected computing devices that collect and exchange data without requiring human interaction. With 30 to 50 billion IoT devices expected to be interconnected by 2020, a tsunami of data is continuously being produced.

How can Wasabi help companies leverage the internet of things?

With a handful of variables impacting what your data is really telling you, the quality of your operational decisions relies on whether or not you’ve factored in context. Therefore, storing all the data collected by IoT sensors and other sources over time provides the context you need for real business transformation—and IoT data is a whole lot of data.

Storing IoT data in the cloud ensures that you’ll never run out of storage capacity, because Wasabi is infinitely scalable (and at a price point up to 80% less than competitors). Wasabi also provides faster performance speeds than competitors, which means you get fresher IoT data for correlation, analysis, and decision making.
