XaaS (Technology as a Service), the core of cloud computing, refers to the various services that have the ability to be delivered via the Internet, rather than provided on-premise. XaaS is ideal for those looking for cost-saving technology solutions for their business.
Technology as a Service – XaaS
The X in XaaS refers to the value of unknown. This is due to the fact that any traditional technology service can now be delivered via the cloud.
The three most common cloud services are Software-as-a-Service (SaaS), Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS), and Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS). However, more and more providers are coming up with new and creative approaches to delivering technology via the cloud.
- Software-as-a-Service allows cloud-based access to programs, alleviating the need for local installations, updates, and support.
- Platform-as-a-Service provides businesses with a preconfigured, consistent development and testing platform without the effort or expense of maintaining that environment in-house.
- Infrastructure-as-a-Service gives IT employees the ability to deploy virtual machines in the vendor’s data center, then configure them with the appropriate operating system, services, applications, etc. and manage the systems remotely.
- Other services include: Cloud Phone Systems, Cloud Computing, Cloud Video Conferencing, Windows-as-a-Service (WaaS), Storage-as-a-Service, Database-as-a-Service (DBaaS) and Malware-as-a-Service (MaaS)
