Hardware as a Service
One of the most significant costs for your small or medium business is the cost of your IT equipment. Essential hardware like servers and workstations require a substantial upfront investment – not to mention the expense of ongoing maintenance.
Many businesses find that they have not properly budgeted for the hardware on which their day-to-day operations rely, which is why the Hardware as a Service (HaaS) model has become so popular.
What Is Hardware as a Service (HaaS)?
In the hardware-as-a-service model, your managed service provider retains ownership of the relevant hardware while it is installed and housed at your site. A managed Network Service contract defines the responsibilities of both parties. In most instances, the cost of leasing the hardware is incorporated into the monthly fee structure for installing, monitoring, and maintaining the hardware.
HaaS as an Operational Expense
A major benefit of Managed Network Services is the ability to budget the costs as an operational expense. Leasing the hardware, as opposed to buying it, can be beneficial to companies with limited cash flow or other budgetary concerns. HaaS operating expenses are fully tax-deductible and a way to lower operating expenses while aggressively improving your IT infrastructure.
