    SaaS - software as a service

    IaaS - infrastructure as a service

  • When referring to SaaS it means Software as a Service. Companies that offer software as a service provide companies with logins so that they can access specific software applications from anywhere they have internet access. IaaS on the other hand is a virtual server that companies can access via the web and they can do anything from installing applications, software, data, host email or websites, and more. Some SaaS services are hosted on IaaS clouds such as when a quickbooks reseller hosts a quickbooks on an IaaS cloud and sells access to customers as a SaaS.

    Saas(Software as a service) model you are provided with access to application softwares often referred to as on-demand softwares.
