ring the power of cloud with rapid yet cost saving development
What is SaaS?
It is a short form of Software as a Service, a method of software delivery for remote users through the Internet. It is a model for software licensing and delivery to use it by the subscribers only with the periodic fees.
However, SaaS is an extension of ASP (Application Service Provider) services. It is differing in many respects and more advanced.
What is Significance of SaaS Software or Web Application Today?
In the traditional IT software model, we need to invest a lot in the hardware and software infrastructure. Today SaaS comes with a better, reliable, and affordable alternative solution to the software needs of different size of the businesses and enterprises or organizations.
If we look at the importance of SaaS software in the present IT environment, we can say
SaaS is centrally hosted, so it is available to all subscribers at a time. It means you do not need individual set of hardware and software to maintain
SaaS is accessible on the thin clients using the web browser without consuming more resources of client devices. Therefore, it has high adoption rate in contemporary mobile era where myriads of device forms are in practice
It is on-demand software, so subscribers pay on a usage basis. Therefore, it again cut the cost of licensing
SaaS applications need not install on the client devices so save us from bearing software on own devices
Hosting, maintenance, and upgrade responsibilities are to the cloud-based SaaS providers so save us from spending on in-house developer team
Upgrades are automatic and applicable to all clients at a time, so they are painless upgrades
With multitenant architecture, scopes for customization is big and with great APIs, seamless integration of existing and new 3rd party services is quite easy
In short, enterprises love SaaS due to its multi-tenancy approaches that allow them to scale the application rapidly and without any additional cost. For IT professionals, it offloads the management burdens and cut the cost considerably due to pricing models.
Architecture of SaaS Software Development
The most prevalent architecture of the SaaS solution is multitenant architecture. In the multitenant model, a single version of the application working with a single configuration of hardware, software, and OS for all beneficiaries (Tenants).
Therefore, resources sharing takes place on the various layers of the IT system architecture including Application Layer, Database Layer, and Infrastructure Layer.
Different tenants may share or not, the respective layers of the system architecture and based on the sharing we can classify the SaaS structure in following ways.
Thus, the selection of the tenancy model may depend on the types of SaaS application, the expertise of SaaS developers, complication involved, and a deadline of the project.
with no sharing at all
with the sharing of underlying infrastructure layer only
Application tenancy has shared of code and infrastructure by each tenant
Shared tenancy has shared of all underlying layers such as application, infrastructure, and database too. Database sharing is with a unique ID to offer security and privacy
The team of SaaS developers at Addon Solutions can help you to select the right model according to your requirements and budget.
