Portland, OR (PRWEB) September 29, 2014
Peak Hosting, the leading provider of Operations-as-a-ServiceSM (OaaS) managed hosting, today announced that it has published a white paper, “So You Think You Know the Cloud,” that looks at the cloudiness around Infrastructure-as-a-Service (Iaas) offerings, and outlines the important factors that companies should consider when selecting a hosting solution, whether it be cloud, in-house or managed hosting.
IaaS has become muddled by the multitude of service offerings available. This paper will help clarify what a cloud hosting solution actually includes; outline what is required to maintain an in-house hosting infrastructure; and discuss the medium of dedicated, managed hosting and its successor Operations-as-a-Service (OaaS).
