Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) is a cloud computing service model that provides virtualized computing resources over the internet. In IaaS, customers can rent and access essential IT infrastructure components, such as virtual machines, storage, and networking, from a cloud service provider on a pay-as-you-go basis. The service provider is responsible for managing and maintaining the underlying physical infrastructure, while customers have control over their virtualized resources, operating systems, applications, and data.
