Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS), is an operational model for providing compute, storage and networking resources on demand via convenient access to a shared pool of configurable computing resources that can be rapidly provisioned and released with minimal management effort or service provider interaction.
By using OCSL -MS IaaS platform, your business will benefit from the best elements of ‘cloud’ technology whilst removing the risks through integration with OCSL-MS traditional data centre services delivering your organisation a risk free hybrid IT delivery function that is designed, deployed and operated in line with your business requirements.
OCSL-MS IaaS solution will provide your business with almost unlimited instances of servers to enable it to quickly deploy new applications or user environments without having to order new hardware then wait for it to arrive and be deployed / configured.
Internal IT resources will also be better utilised by concentrating on what’s important in driving your business forward rather than expending time on managing the utility IT.
As our platform is also spread across our redundant data centre sites this also makes it ideal in satisfying an organisations need for business continuity and disaster recovery.

VMware ESXi (5), Microsoft Hyper-V
Windows 2008 64 bit virtual machines Various Linux including Red Hat, Centos (RH derivative)
