Anything As A Service


Anything as a service (XaaS) is a broadly used term to refer to the various services available on cloud computing and accessibility from anywhere. The cloud technology services being offered by the various vendors are delivered over the internet. The concept of internet-based services started with the Software as a Service (SaaS) wherein the providers offered individual software applications and the process expanded to Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) and Platform as a Service (PaaS) as the usage of cloud technology increased.
 
With the cloud hosting services diversifying the implementers have coined the term Anything as a Service and the services are also known as X as a service or Everything as a Service. X is a catch-all term from everything that is already being offered and the scope and potentialities that clouds services may come up with in the future. Some more services that are being offered include Disaster Recovery as a Service (DRaaS), Desktop as a Service(DaaS), Network as a Service (NaaS) etc. 

The purpose of Anything as a Service (XaaS) and Everything as a Service (XaaS) is to bring down the capital expenditure and allow businesses to draw the services they require by subscribing with a vendor. Prior to the Anything as a Service coming into implementation, businesses had to purchase software products, pay for its license fee, install, and maintain them on site. They also needed to buy appropriate hardware for it and set it up, provide for the infrastructure security and maintenance which has been time-consuming and expensive. Now with XaaS, the service providers take responsibility for everything. They provide the services over the internet, do all the updates and upgrades, provide maintenance with security patches and wear and tear considerations. The users both individuals and businesses are benefitted as they just take the services they want on a rental basis, pay for what they use and get better cost-cutting opportunities.
