What are the price advantages for cloud computing?
Software-as-a-Service is the next higher level of abstraction in which companies offer fully managed applications without the recipient having to worry about updates, maintenance and troubleshooting. STACKIT does not currently offer its own SaaS solutions.
Platform-as-a-Service is the next level in cloud computing after IaaS and provides developers with a complete development and delivery environment. This allows applications to be developed, operated and scaled with consumption-oriented costs.
The price advantages are:
- Cost reduction
- Focus on core business
- No expenditure for operation of the infrastructure or maintenance work
- Scalable resources on demand
Infrastructure-as-a-Service forms the first level in cloud computing and consists of the physical components (server, storage and network hardware). In order to be able to procure the services, additional functionalities for virtualization are required.
The price advantages are:
- Reduce costs with the pay-as-you-go billing model
- Save on hardware procurement and scale the infrastructure environment with one click
- Excellent price-performance ratio, especially for virtual machines
- Versatile storage types with separate billing in block storage between performance classes and volumes
- Less need for specialist staff due to managed services with automation options
Billing in Cloud Regions and Availability Zones
An availability zone (= “AZ”) is a data center (network) with separate cooling solutions, power supplies and network connections. An AZ can consist of one or more physical data centers and is always part of a region. Three or more AZs form a region. STACKIT currently offers the central region of Heilbronn / Germany. You can find the region affiliation in the STACKIT service name with the ending “EU01”.
The services in the IaaS level must be assigned to an AZ. To do this, either the single or metro setup must be selected for the respective version.
The virtual machine (VM) in the single area is permanently bound to a selected AZ, i.e. the virtual machine is not automatically restarted on AZ2 in the event of a failure of AZ1.
In this setup, the virtual machine lies in a metro zone, which is divided across two or more availability zones.
Achieve high availability of your IT infrastructure with this replicated distribution. The name schema for metro services has the suffix “-m”.
