Software As A Service (SAAS)

SaaS provides numerous advantages to employees and companies by greatly reducing the time and money spent on tedious tasks such as installing, managing, and upgrading software. This frees up plenty of time for technical staff to spend on more pressing matters and issues within the organization.

SaaS Characteristics

There are a few ways to help you determine when SaaS is being utilized:

  • * Managed from a central location
  • * Hosted on a remote server
  • * Accessible over the internet
  • * Users not responsible for hardware or software update

 

When to Use SaaS

There are many different situations in which SaaS may be the most beneficial option, including:

  • * If you are a startup or small company that needs to launch ecommerce quickly and don’t have time for server issues or software
  • * For short-term projects that require collaboration
  • * If you use applications that aren’t in-demand very often, such as tax software
  • * For applications that need both web and mobile access

 

Infrastrcture As A Service (IAAS)

aaS delivers Cloud Computing infrastructure, including things such as servers, network, operating systems, and storage, through virtualization technology. These cloud servers are typically provided to the organization through a dashboard or an API, and IaaS clients have complete control over the entire infrastructure. IaaS provides the same technologies and capabilities as a traditional data center without having to physically maintain or manage all of it. IaaS clients can still access their servers and storage directly, but it is all outsourced through a “virtual data center” in the cloud.

As opposed to SaaS or PaaS, IaaS clients are responsible for managing aspects such as applications, runtime, OSes, middleware, and data. However, providers of the IaaS manage the servers, hard drives, networking, virtualization, and storage. Some providers even offer more services outside of the virtualization layer, such as databases or message queuing.

 

IaaS Advantages

There are many benefits of choosing IaaS, such as:

  • * It’s the most flexible cloud computing model
  • * Easily allows for automated deployment of storage, networking, servers, and processing power
  • * Hardware can be purchased based on consumption
  • * Gives clients complete control of their infrastructure
  • * Resources can be purchased as-needed
  • * Is highly scalable

 

IaaS Characteristics

Some characteristics to look for when considering IaaS are:

  • * Resources are available as a service
  • * The cost varies depending on consumption
  • * Services are highly scalable
  • * Typically includes multiple users on a single piece of hardware
  • * Provides complete control of the infrastructure to organizations
  • * Dynamic and flexible

 

Why Use IaaS ?

Just as with SaaS and PaaS, there are specific situations when it is the most advantageous to use IaaS. If you are a startup or a small company, IaaS is a great option because you don’t have to spend the time or money trying to create hardware and software. IaaS is also beneficial for large organizations that wish to have complete control over their applications and infrastructures, but are looking to only purchase what is actually consumed or needed. For rapidly growing companies, IaaS can be a good option since you don’t have to commit to a specific hardware or software as your needs change and evolve. It also helps if you are unsure what demands a new application will require as there is a lot of flexibility to scale up or down as needed.

 

 

Platform As A Service (PAAS)

The delivery model of PaaS is similar to SaaS, except instead of delivering the software over the internet, PaaS provides a platform for software creation. This platform is delivered over the web, and gives developers the freedom to concentrate on building the software while still not having to worry about operating systems, software updates, storage, or infrastructure.

PaaS allows businesses to design and create applications that are built into the PaaS with special software components. These applications, or middleware, are scalable and highly available as they take on certain cloud characteristics.

 

Why use PaaS ? 

No matter what size your company may be, there are numerous advantages for using PaaS:

  • * Makes the development and deployment of apps simple and cost-effective
  • * Scalable
  • * Highly available
  • * Gives developers the ability to create customized apps without the headache of maintaining the software
  • * Greatly reduces the amount of coding
  • * Automates business policy
  • * Allows easy migration to the hybrid model

 

PaaS Characteristics

PaaS has many characteristics that define it as a cloud service, including:

  • * It is built on virtualization technology, meaning resources can easily be scaled up or down as your business changes
  • * Provides a variety of services to assist with the development, testing, and deployment of apps
  • * Numerous users can access the same development application
  • * Web services and databases are integrated
