What is SaaS ? 3 SaaS benefits

SaaS (Software as a Service) is software as a service. The user receives a fully configured and ready-to-use program that works from the cloud hosting using the computing power of a virtual server. An Internet connection is enough to work in the program.

SaaS benefits

Saves physical memory. The program does not take up space on your smartphone or computer.
Convenient access to the application. If you have an internet connection, you can open the program anytime, anywhere.
Flexibility. You can choose a tariff in accordance with the actually consumed resources, and also use only the functionality that is needed to complete the task.
Unification. If the staff of the company consists of office and remote employees, applications in the SaaS system help to set up work according to a single standard.

Another close to SaaS rental model in the cloud is DaaS (Desktop as a Service). In this case, not a separate program is provided for rent, but a whole remote desktop on which the necessary software is pre-installed and configured.

So, we made a comparison between SaaS, IaaS and PaaS. Obviously, each of the services allows you to reduce both time costs – for connection and configuration, and financial – for the purchase of equipment.
