Software as a Service (SaaS)

What is software as a service (SaaS)?

Software as a Service (SaaS) is a software delivery-and-licensing model in which customers store and access data through the internet rather than through local computers. With SaaS, service providers host customer data in a cloud infrastructure at their own data centers, and customers can then access it and/or the software interface via a web browser or API.

Setting a new precedent for cloud-based SaaS

With Wasabi's hot cloud storage services falling under the SaaS umbrella, more and more organizations are beginning to reap the benefits of Software as a Service. Cloud-based SaaS storage models provide optimal ease-of-access to customers for a wide variety of business applications. Rather than the traditional model of paying for software through a license that often includes upfront costs and ongoing support fees, organizations pay for SaaS applications through a monthly or yearly subscription fee. Pricing is customized based on unique data parameters, and customers can easily access their cloud-stored data through a web browser at any time.
