Description

SHOW: Season 1, Show 7

OVERVIEW: From the creators of the Internet's #1 Cloud Computing podcast, The Cloudcast, Aaron Delp (@aarondelp) and Brian Gracely (@bgracely) introduce this new podcast,  Cloudcast Basics.  

  • What does SaaS mean in the cloud? The cloud manages the entire application and data, and the “end-users” just consume or interact with the application. 
  • How are SaaS services allocated? Typically by # of end-users, although it could be interacting with the overall service. 
  • How were SaaS services allocated before cloud computing? Some companies had “centralized IT services”, but nothing like this really existed before SaaS.
  • What does the cloud computing provider do with a SaaS offering (responsibilities vs. customer responsibilities? Cloud provider (or SaaS provider) is responsible for everything about running the application (security, data, scaling, etc.)
  • Why are there so many variations of SaaS? Because of aspect of business and consumer services is now software, so SaaS can be applied to almost anything. 
  • Does it matter where the SaaS is located? How do clouds organize SaaS (availability zones, regions, etc.)? Should be completely agnostic to the end-user, unless there are country-specific rules about where data is stored. The SaaS should manage that as well.  
  • How much do SaaS services cost in the cloud? What are the various ways you can buy SaaS?
