SaaS

Cloud

Cloud computing, often referred to as simply “the cloud,” is the delivery of on-demand computing resources — everything from applications to data centers — over the internet on a pay-for-use basis.

  • Elastic resources — Scale up or down quickly and easily to meet demand
  • Metered service so you only pay for what you use
  • Self service — All the IT resources you need with self-service access

SaaS (Software as a Service)

Cloud-based applications — or software as a service — run on distant computers “in the cloud” that are owned and operated by others and that connect to users’ computers via the internet and, usually, a web browser.

The benefits of SaaS

  • You can sign up and rapidly start using innovative business apps
  • Apps and data are accessible from any connected computer
  • No data is lost if your computer breaks, as data is in the cloud
  • The service is able to dynamically scale to usage needs
