With Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) being the second largest market segment in cloud services (behind SaaS) and the market with the highest growth rate according to Gartner, it's clear companies are embracing the diversity of IaaS solutions, eliminating the need to physically manage and maintain infrastructure onsite or in a data center. With Gartner predicting the infrastructure as a service (IaaS) market to grow 25% year-over-year, it is apparent that businesses are benefiting through IaaS. Is this solution right for your organization? Whether you are considering colocation or you’re ready to move to the cloud, learn more about IaaS.

There is no doubt that the world has been literally turned upside down with the coronavirus crisis. All industries had to change due to social distancing requirements, even those traditionally requiring face-to-face contact, such as healthcare . Rather than seeing patients directly in person, many physicians and healthcare providers are now providing care via the phone or video conferencing. This has now catalyzed the growth of a developing area of healthcare - telehealth. It is estimated that this industry will be valued at $130 billion by 2025.

Like thousands of companies around the world, in response to COVID-19, TBI made the decision to put a mandatory work-from-home policy in place for the safety and health of their employees on March 16, 2020. Within 24 hours, the 200+ employees of the tech company were fully operational, up and running from their respective homes without difficulty or problems.
Even before the COVID-19 pandemic, working remotely was already more popular than ever before. One Gallup survey in 2019 found that more than 40% of Americans worked from home occasionally, and in recent years, the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) noted that roughly 16% of Americans (nearly 30 million people) now work remotely on a regular basis.
Today’s workloads and applications require networks to be configured for prioritization and give quick and easy access to clouds and colocation. Infrastructure as a service (IaaS) refers to cloud-based infrastructure resources delivered to organizations via virtualization technology to help build and manage servers, network, operating systems, and data storage. It eliminates the need for remote access hardware, helps with data replication and virtual access, offers security options, and provides an operational expense model.
Given the increasing mobility of the current workforce, the need for on-demand technology and services will only keep growing at a rapid rate. One area that will be a huge catalyst for this is unified communications. Today, remote workers and field sales positions want devices and apps to quickly reach their counterparts.
The cyber security landscape is changing rapidly, sometimes daily. Many IT security teams are stretched to their limits, finding it challenging to manage the ever-multiplying threats and sometimes even decipher real risks from false alarms. To combat this and more quickly identify authentic threats, many organizations have turned to the option of building their own security operations center (SOC).
