Working with MediaLab means that you are automatically working in the cloud. All your data are stored on online servers. You don’t have to worry about making back-ups from media on devices. When you are deciding to move your business to the cloud, you can choose between three solutions: SaaS, PaaS and IaaS. So, let’s go back to the basics, what do these concepts mean? We found interesting reading material, that explains these terms.

Differences between cloud solutions

MediaLab is an example of a SaaS solution. SaaS stands for ‘Software as a Service’ and uses the web to deliver applications. Everything that you need is provided and managed by one service provider. With SaaS, it isn’t needed to install and run applications on individual computers. Using SaaS solutions are cost savings. You are literally paying for the services and the licenses that you need. As a company, you will never pay too much for SaaS solutions. PaaS stands for ‘Platform as a Service’ and is used for applications to deliver SaaS products. Developers have the opportunity to use a framework where they can unfold and customize applications. This is a nifty way to offer a self-service portal for computing infrastructures. The last solution is IaaS; Infrastructure as a Service. With this service, it’s possible to ‘rent’ empty server storage. As a company, you are completely responsible for the configuration and the maintenance of software and resources that are hosted on the infrastructure.
