Is SaaS without its own datacenter really SaaS?Locked
With the growth in the use of SaaS, several product suppliers have appeared in this Cloud delivery model. However, there are many companies that deliver their SaaS products and still have their own Datacenter. Others already use third-party data centers like AWS or Azure. I don’t know if we can call this SaaS off-premise … Even large companies with consolidated products at some point use third-party data centers, such as SalesForce, which has a large data center worldwide but in some places they use AWS.
Question: Can we consider SaaS to be a product of a company that outsources the DataCenter? Should we pay attention only to the product’s SLA and stop worrying totally about how PaaS and IaaS are being treated?
