What is IT as a Service? (ITaaS)
ITaaS is a way to greatly simplify your business computing needs with the power and convenience of Cloud Hosting. Traditionally, a company owns all of its own server hardware and software, locked in a dedicated on-site server room, and is responsible for all of the expenses and hassles of keeping it running 24/7/365. With Walker ITaaS, you can eliminate some or all of that equipment and overhead, and transfer it to us via Cloud Hosting. For a monthly fee we will take care of all of your company’s IT hardware, software, upgrading, licensing, backup, security and routine maintenance requirements. ITaaS ensures your systems will always have the latest and greatest hardware, software, and upgrades, as well the right resources and expertise to support your environment.
ITaaS vs. Traditional
Over the last several years, traditional IT infrastructures have become more and more problematic for many companies, for the following reasons:
- Short Hardware Lifecycles – Servers, hard drives, and even RAM can fail unpredictably, requiring continual monitoring. Even the best equipment becomes obsolete within 3–5 years and must be replaced, forcing you to pay installation and/or migration fees.
- Constant Software Upgrades – Vendors continually release updates with every new feature and each new security risk, resulting in ongoing issues of compatibility, upgrades, and version management.
- Systems Complexity – Many companies cannot afford to hire IT staff with the skills necessary to maintain their entire infrastructure and support their users.
ITaaS solves many of these traditional IT infrastructure issues and more. This model allows you to focus more on your business and less on maintaining your network. Walker ITaaS provides your company all the resources and expertise of IT professionals with 30 years in the business.
