Why do you need a Infrastructure as a Service Agreement (IaaS)?

The migration to the cloud is an amazing opportunity for businesses to do away with on-site servers and rid themselves of the financial and maintenance burdens that come with providing on-site servers and data storage. Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) and hosting cloud-based servers require a tailored agreement to outline costs, details and infrastructure requirements for the client and provider.

What is a Infrastructure as a Service Agreement (IaaS)?

Think of an IaaS agreement as an agreement you would sign if you were to rent a storage unit. The agreement must set out the terms for both parties including storage limits, access, security, termination and payment, and who is responsible for any faults and outages that could result in loss of business and loss of company data.

This is a “Forever Template”

We will continually update this template with the frequent Microsoft updates such as CSP and other flow down terms, plus we will update the relevant terms to ensure you can claim as many rebates as possible, and get recognised by Microsoft such as CPoR, (Claims Partner of Record) DPoR (Digital Partner of Record), and PAL (Partner Admin Link).

We will also continually update this template as the law changes, for example, GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) and the effects of Brexit on our laws, as we untangle ourselves from the European Union.
