Infrastructure as a Service, short IaaS, is a cloud computing solution that enables access to high performance computing resources in a virtualized environment.

An organisation can refer to RESTENA-IaaS for example when it has to punctually adapt its computing resources in the framework of a short term project, accelerate deployment works (f.ex. hosting a website) or if it wants to focus on its user needs and not on technical end resources (f.ex. in practical school exercises).
