Proxios Outlines the Difference Between SaaS and ITaaS in New White Paper

Richmond, VA (PRWEB) November 21, 2013

The cloud isnt a one size fits all solution, but a broad range of services designed for different business needs. In order to understand how the cloud can benefit an organization, its important to understand the different components of cloud computing and how they compare to each other. Proxios details two of the more popular cloud services, SaaS and ITaaS, in its new white paper: Whats Wrong with this Cloud?


Software as a Service (SaaS) is the delivery of software solutions over the Internet and accessed via the Web browser installed on a users PC. They are meant to be a substitute for in-house deployments of a single application.


IT as a Service (ITaaS) is an outsourced IT infrastructure that provides the capabilities of a IT department without having to own, maintain or support a network. Organizations get all the benefits of advanced technology and applications while reducing dependence on servers, desktops, software and other technical equipment. Plus, it allows organizations to maintain a current system configuration through a virtual desktop.

What is a Virtual Desktop?

A Proxios Virtual Desktop is a Microsoft Windows desktop deployed to your PC either across the Internet or through one of Proxios managed private connections. The Proxios Virtual Desktop interface has all of the familiarity of a standard Microsoft desktop and the applications running on your PC now, but the processing is entirely handled by a series of high availability virtual servers within one of Proxios’ secure data centers. Your PC effectively becomes a terminal, or merely a means of connecting to your data and software.
