A common shorthand for a provided cloud computing service (or even an aggregation of all existing cloud services) is "The Cloud". Cloud Computing visual diagram In the past. Consumer benefits are that software no longer has to be installed and is automatically updated but savings in terms of dollars is yet to be seen. both data and software had to be stored and processed on or near the computer. such as word processing. to the service provider. Evolution.Cloud computing 1 Cloud computing Cloud computing refers to the provision of computational resources on demand via a computer network. Consumers now routinely use data intensive applications driven by cloud technology which were previously unavailable due to cost and deployment complexity. a company owned email. The consumer's computer may contain very little software or data (perhaps a minimal operating system and web browser only). applications. Even those who use web-based email such as Gmail. The term "software as a service" is sometimes used to describe programs offered through "The Cloud". gas. cloud computing fundamentally allows for a functional separation between the resources used and the user's computer. . Centralized and standardized utilities freed individuals from the difficulties of generating electricity or pumping water. An analogy to explain cloud computing is that of public utilities such as electricity. videos. In an extension to that concept. cloud based applications and services may support any type of software application or service in use today. for example. and water. The development of Local Area Networks allowed for a system in which multiple CPUs and storage devices may be organized to increase the performance of the entire system. Since the cloud is the underlying delivery mechanism. Users can store and access personal files such as music. Hotmail. serving as little more than a display terminal connected to the Internet. desktop applications which connect to cloud email can also be considered cloud applications. Hence. without actually possessing the software or hardware. such as Google. Users or clients can submit a task. and bookmarks or play games or do word processing on a remote server rather than physically carrying around a storage medium such as a DVD or thumb drive. The principle behind the cloud is that any computer connected to the Internet is connected to the same pool of computing power. All of the development and maintenance tasks involved in doing so was alleviated. Mozilla Thunderbird or Entourage are making use of cloud email servers. Yahoo. this translates to a reduced cost in software distribution to providers who still use hard mediums such as DVDs. or even an e-mail client program such as Outlook. In many companies employees and company departments are bringing a flood of consumer technology into the workplace and this raises legal compliance and security concerns for the corporation. usually residing outside the local network. in an remote datacenter. With Cloud computing. and files. pictures.

Technical description The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) provides a concise and specific definition: Cloud computing is a model for enabling convenient. The service provider may pool the processing power of multiple remote computers in "the cloud" to achieve the task. and services) that can be rapidly provisioned and released with minimal management effort or service provider interaction. in order to make requests to and receive data from the cloud.Cloud computing 2 How it works Cloud computing utilizes the network as a means to connect the user to resources that are based in the 'cloud'. software. and the iPhone App Store. Mac and Windows platforms. hence the term "software as a service" (SaaS). Computation and storage is divided among the remote computers in order to handle large volumes of both. servers. In some cases. or both. while the compute resources are consolidated at a remote data center location. and storage services that do not require end-user knowledge of the physical location and configuration of the system that delivers the services. Most cloud computing infrastructures consist of services delivered through shared data-centers. With 'cloud computing'. which are accessed from a Web browser. depending on the speed of the Internet connection. These tasks would normally be difficult. and extending the reach of business services provided by outsourcing. in other cases entire business applications have been coded using web based technologies such as AJAX. such as netbooks which were created with cloud computing in mind. Parallels to this concept can be drawn with the electricity grid. with a connection to the Internet. networks. With smartphones and tablets on the rise. on-demand network access to a shared pool of configurable computing resources (e. The 'cloud' may be accessed via the Internet or a company network.[5] Cloud computing providers deliver applications via the internet. while the business software and data are stored on servers at a remote location. but specific terms are less often negotiated by smaller companies. especially with limited computing resources and funds. Commercial offerings may be required to meet service level agreements (SLAs). or a company network. and it typically involves provisioning of dynamically scalable and often virtualized resources[2] [3] It is a byproduct and consequence of the ease-of-access to remote computing sites provided by the Internet. storage. data access. where end-users consume power without needing to understand the component devices or infrastructure required to provide the service. cloud services have changed to allow access from any device connected to the Internet.[4] This may take the form of web-based tools or applications that users can access and use through a web browser as if they were programs installed locally on their own computers. Cloud services may be designed to work equally well with Linux. consumption. word processing. The outcome of the processing task is returned to the client over the network. clients only require a simple computer. legacy applications (line of business applications which until now have been prevalent in thick client Windows computing) are delivered via a screen sharing technology such as Citrix XenApp. or computationally intensive work. or even a smartphone.[6] . notable examples include the iTunes Store. thus the client need not purchase expensive hardware or software to handle the task. applications.g. as opposed to actually possessing them. The Cloud may appear as a single point of access for consumers' computing needs. Cloud computing describes a new supplement.. allowing mobile workers access on-the-go. such as backing up of large amounts of data. as in telecommuting. and delivery model for IT services based on Internet protocols. or expensive for an individual user or a small company to accomplish.[1] Cloud computing provides computation. time consuming.

Grid computing — "a form of distributed computing and parallel computing. industry and consumer statistics. Client–server model – client–server computing refers broadly to any distributed application that distinguishes between service providers (servers) and service requesters (clients). Complexity is controlled and the resulting systems are more manageable than their monolithic counterparts. typically bulk data processing such as census. The front end is the part seen by the client. as a metered service similar to a traditional public utility.[11] Characteristics The key characteristic of cloud computing is that the computing is "in the cloud". and financial transaction processing. comprising various computers. typically involves multiple cloud components communicating with each other over application programming interfaces. servers and data storage devices.[9] 5.

Peer-to-peer – distributed architecture without the need for central coordination.[12] the [[systems architecture]] of the software systems involved in the delivery of cloud computing. The back end of the cloud computing architecture is the ‘cloud’ itself."[7] 2. such as electricity. in a reciprocal manner. Utility computing — the "packaging of computing resources.e. . The two most significant components of cloud computing architecture are known as the front end and the back end. such as computation and storage.[8] 3. that is. All the other concepts mentioned are supplementary or complementary to this concept. loosely coupled computers acting in concert to perform very large tasks. with participants being at the same time both suppliers and consumers of resources (in contrast to the traditional client–server model). This resembles the Unix philosophy of having multiple programs each doing one thing well and working together over universal interfaces. service-oriented computing consists of the computing techniques that operate on software-as-a-service. i. This includes the client’s network (or computer) and the applications used to access the cloud via a user interface such as a web browser. Service-oriented computing – Cloud computing provides services related to computing while. the processing (and the related data) is not in a specified. This is in contrast to a model in which the processing takes place in one or more specific servers that are known."[10] 6. whereby a 'super and virtual computer' is composed of a cluster of networked." 4. enterprise resource planning. usually web services and 3-tier architecture.Cloud computing 3 Overview Comparisons Cloud computing shares characteristics with: 1.

The Challenge of the Computer Utility. like most computer networks.[24] By mid-2008. just to leave room for occasional spikes."[26] . Cloud computing extends this boundary to cover servers as well as the network infrastructure. and that which was the responsibility of the user. IBM and a number of universities embarked on a large-scale cloud computing research project. Amongst them also include many corporations that live on Amazon's web services. The cloud symbol was used to denote the demarcation point between that which was the responsibility of the provider. Amazon initiated a new product development effort to provide cloud computing to external customers. which. or control over. Amazon played a key role in the development of cloud computing by modernizing their data centers.[22] In early 2008.[14] Cloud computing is a natural evolution of the widespread adoption of virtualization.. private. online. The actual term "cloud" borrows from telephony in that telecommunications companies. and for the federation of clouds. a site for news-sharing and BigDoor.

By switching traffic to balance utilization as they saw fit. they were able to utilize their overall network bandwidth more effectively." Almost all the modern-day characteristics of cloud computing (elastic provision. in the framework of the IRMOS European Commission-funded project. became the first open-source software for deploying private and hybrid clouds. Eucalyptus became the first open-source. including Foursquare. efforts were focused on providing QoS guarantees (as required by real-time interactive applications) to cloud-based infrastructures. provided as a utility.[20] It was reported in 2011 that Amazon has thousands of corporate customers. a maker of game tools for Web publishers. AWS API-compatible platform for deploying private clouds.[15] The underlying concept of cloud computing dates back to the 1960s. In early 2008.[13] and later to depict the Internet in computer network diagrams as an abstraction of the underlying infrastructure it represents.Cloud computing 4 History The term "cloud" is used as a metaphor for the Internet. Gartner saw an opportunity for cloud computing "to shape the relationship among consumers of IT services.. enhanced in the RESERVOIR European Commission-funded project.[21] In 2007. autonomic and utility computing. who no longer have need for expertise in. began offering Virtual Private Network (VPN) services with comparable quality of service but at a much lower cost. Google. were using as little as 10% of their capacity at any one time. Having found that the new cloud architecture resulted in significant internal efficiency improvements whereby small.[16] The first scholarly use of the term “cloud computing” was in a 1997 lecture by Ramnath Chellappa.[23] In the same year. those who use IT services and those who sell them"[25] and observed that "[o]rganisations are switching from company-owned hardware and software assets to per-use service-based models" so that the "projected shift to cloud computing . Details are abstracted from end-users. and launched Amazon Web Service (AWS) on a utility computing basis in 2006. when John McCarthy opined that "computation may someday be organized as a public utility.

Private cloud installations are in part motivated by users' desire to retain control over the infrastructure and avoid losing control of information security.[27] • Application Programming Interface (API) accessibility to software that enables machines to interact with cloud software in the same way the user interface facilitates interaction between humans and computers. and the lack of security for stored kernels. etc.[29] • Security could improve due to centralization of data.

Combined cloud Two clouds that have been joined together are more correctly called a "combined cloud". Oracle and VMware who offer technology to manage the complexity in managing the performance.[49] Hybrid cloud and hybrid IT delivery The main responsibility of the IT department is to deliver services to the business.[51] A hybrid storage cloud uses a combination of public and private storage clouds. With the proliferation of cloud computing (both private and public) and the fact that IT departments must also deliver services via traditional. A combined cloud environment consisting of multiple internal and/or external providers[53] "will be typical for most enterprises". via web applications/web services. security and/or policy compliance. in-house methods. Examples of community clouds include Google's "Gov Cloud". including multi-core processors. In addition it can be economically attractive as the resources (storage. cloud-specific operating systems and combined offerings. security and privacy concerns that results from the mixed delivery methods of IT services. This option may offer a higher level of privacy. Hybrid storage clouds are often [52] useful for archiving and backup functions. where the hosting infrastructure is a mix between cloud hosting and managed dedicated servers – this is most commonly achieved as part of a web cluster in which some of the nodes are running on real physical hardware and some are running on cloud server instances.[35] [46] [47] [48] Deployment models Public cloud Public cloud or external cloud describes cloud computing in the traditional mainstream sense. the newest catch-phrase has become “hybrid cloud computing.Cloud computing 7 Server The servers layer consists of computer hardware and/or computer software products that are specifically designed for the delivery of cloud services. Another perspective on deploying a web application in the cloud is using Hybrid Web Hosting. The costs are spread over fewer users than a public cloud (but more than a single tenant). IBM. whereby resources are dynamically provisioned on a fine-grained.[54] By integrating multiple cloud services users may be able to ease the transition to public cloud services while avoiding issues such as PCI compliance.[29] Community cloud A community cloud may be established where several organizations have similar requirements and seek to share infrastructure so as to realize some of the benefits of cloud computing. .g.

Cloud storage Cloud storage is a model of networked computer data storage where data is stored on multiple virtual servers. legal issues. and people who require their data to be hosted buy or lease storage capacity from them and use it for their storage needs. hybrid models still exist despite the formation of reasonably well-functioning markets and the ability to combine multiple providers. the Intercloud raises many more challenges than solutions concerning cloud federation. Nevertheless. leading towards a cloud ecosystem. but the concepts themselves pre-date the term cloud by 40 years. which the customers can themselves manage. the ability to recover from failure. Some vendors have used the terms to describe offerings that emulate cloud computing on private networks. build. These provide the benefits of utility computing – shared hardware costs. rather than being hosted on dedicated servers. i. as well as the study and applied research of the approach. for all intents and purposes. and in theory. industrialization.[56] [57] Enterprise IT organizations use their own private cloud(s) for mission critical and other operational systems to protect critical infrastructures. disciplined. the application of engineering to cloud.[54] essentially "[lacking] the economic model that makes cloud computing such an intriguing concept".[64] The Intercloud scenario is based on the key concept that each single cloud does not have infinite physical resources. productization. standardization. Hosting companies operate large data centers.

which recorded over 10 million phone calls between American citizens. and Verizon. Amazon. providers such as Amazon still cater to major markets (typically the United States and the European Union) by deploying local infrastructure and allowing customers to select "availability zones. lawfully or unlawfully. can monitor at will. 9 Issues Privacy The cloud model has been criticized by privacy advocates for the greater ease in which the companies hosting the cloud services control. This is how Google is able to "manage and meet additional government policy requirements beyond FISMA"[67] [68] and Rackspace Cloud are able to claim PCI compliance.[65] While there have been efforts (such as US-EU Safe Harbor) to "harmonize" the legal environment. calling the requirement "unduly restrictive of competition. the prevalence of open standards and open source may have an impact on the way that public entities choose to select vendors. users may have to adopt community or hybrid deployment modes which are typically more expensive and may offer restricted benefits.g.S.[72] Google[73] and Microsoft[74] ). the "Challenge of the Computer Utility".Cloud computing The concept of a competitive utility computing market which combined many computer utilities together was originally described by Douglas Parkhill in his 1966 book.[70] Many providers also obtain SAS 70 Type II certification (e. the number of trademark filings covering cloud computing brands. 116 cloud computing trademarks were filed. and thus. resulting in a formal rejection of the trademark application less than a week later. In 2009. Google sued. working with AT&T. cloud computing trademark filings increased by 483% between 2008 and 2009.[80] . The "Notice of Allowance" the company received in July 2008 was canceled in August. and trademark [78] analysts predict that over 500 such marks could be filed during 2010. under non-disclosure agreement.[71] Salesforce. On October 29. Dell applied to trademark the term "cloud computing" (U."[79] Scholars have pointed out that. Other legal cases may shape the use of cloud computing by the public sector. Since 2007. Trademark 77139082 [77]) in the United States.[75] Providers typically make this information available on request.[69] Customers in the EU contracting with cloud providers established outside the EU/EEA have to adhere to the EU regulations on export of personal data. but this has been criticised on the grounds that the hand-picked set of goals and standards determined by the auditor and the auditee are often not disclosed and can vary widely.com. 2010. As companies sought to better position themselves for cloud computing branding and marketing efforts. This concept has been subsequently used many times over the last 40 years and is identical to the Intercloud. Department of Interior. HIPAA and SOX in the United States. the Data Protection Directive in the EU and the credit card industry's PCI DSS. beginning in 2005. goods and services has increased at an almost exponential rate. the communication and data stored between the user and the host company.S. and the greater powers it gives to telecommunication companies to monitor user activity. Instances such as the secret NSA program. causes uncertainty among privacy advocates. which opened up a bid for software that required that bidders use Microsoft's Business Productivity Online Suite. Google filed a lawsuit against the U."[66] Compliance In order to obtain compliance with regulations including FISMA.[76] Legal In March 2007.

Thus countries with favorable conditions.[91] Siting the servers affects the environmental effects of cloud computing.[89] There are also concerns about a cloud provider shutting down for financial or legal reasons.Cloud computing 10 Open source Open source software has provided the foundation for many cloud computing implementations. In areas where climate favors natural cooling and renewable electricity is readily available. that promote external management of provided services. an emerging approach to shared infrastructure in which large pools of systems are linked together to provide IT services. private or public. is being developed using cloud computing. there is as of yet no published study to substantiate this assumption.[87] Organizations have been formed in order to provide standards for a better future in cloud computing services.[93] are trying more moderate. [94] . such as Finland. SmartBay. a version of GPLv3 intended to close a perceived legal loophole associated with free software designed to be run over a network. businesses are also worried about acceptable levels of availability and performance of applications hosted in the cloud. The Open Cloud Consortium (OCC)[85] is working to develop consensus on early cloud computing standards and practices. Security The relative security of cloud computing services is a contentious issue which may be delaying its adoption. the Free Software Foundation released the Affero General Public License. the Cloud Security Alliance is a non-profit organization formed to promote the use of best practices for providing security assurance within cloud computing. marine research infrastructure of sensors and computational technology. the environmental effects will be [92] Sweden and Switzerland. It is the very nature of cloud computing based services. One organization in particular. one prominent example being the Hadoop framework. Sustainability and siting Although cloud computing is often assumed to be a form of "green computing".[82] Open standards Most cloud providers expose APIs which are typically well-documented (often under a Creative Commons license[83] ) but also unique to their implementation and thus not interoperable.[86] Issues barring the adoption of cloud computing are due in large part to the private and public sectors unease surrounding the external management of security based services. Some vendors have adopted others' APIs[84] and there are a number of open standards under development. This delivers great incentive amongst cloud computing service providers in producing a priority in building and maintaining strong management of secure services.[88] Availability and performance In addition to concerns about security. which has happened in a [90] number of cases.[81] In November 2007. to attract cloud computing data centers. including the OGF's Open Cloud Computing Interface.

Animoto is a web application that produces videos from user-selected photos, video clips and music. Animoto analyzes the provided photos, video clips and music, using them to generate a video similar to a trailer. According to the website, the song is analyzed, producing a unique video every time. The site also claims that no two videos are ever the same.[1] [2] By November 2009, 1 million users had registered at Animoto. Their iPhone application has been installed 300,000 times and two million Facebook users have used the Animoto Facebook application.[3] One year prior, in August 2008, 250,000 users in 150 countries had been registered with Animoto.com.[4] About 10% of users who register at the site end up paying money, so the company has had cash flow since October 2008.[5] Investors of Animoto include Amazon.com, Bruce Livingstone, the founder of iStockphoto & Madrona Venture Group.[3] Some of the founders include former producers at MTV, VH1, Comedy Central & ABC. Animoto utilizes the post-production skills some of the founding team honed while working in television in order to produce online content that is on-par with content found on TV & in film.[2] [6]

Animoto was founded on August 2006, and launched as a website on August 14, 2007. Animoto is based in New York, with an office in San Francisco. While attending the SXSW Interactive Festival in March 2008, Animoto launched their own Facebook application.[7] It became a popular way for users to showcase their photos on the social network. The Animoto Facebook application experienced so much viral growth in April 2008, that it became one of Amazon Web Services's cloud computing success stories. By mid-April, Animoto's Facebook application had nearly 750,000 people sign up in three days. At the peak, almost 25,000 people tried Animoto in a single hour.[8] Amazon Web Services's ability to meet the demand of Animoto's viral Facebook application resulted in Amazon.com's eventual investment in Animoto. Jeff Bezos includes Animoto in speeches he gives regarding Amazon Web Services.[9]

Animoto Along with releasing the Animoto Facebook application in March 2008, Animoto was also a YouTube launch partner for YouTube's API. Animoto was integrated with YouTube, allowing users to export Animoto videos directly to YouTube easily.[10] As of August 2009, nearly 250,000 videos have been uploaded to YouTube. On June 2008, Animoto introduced DVD-quality upgrades for users, allowing them to watch their videos on a television. By July 2008, Animoto for Business[11] and Animoto for Education[12] were launched. Animoto for Education gives teachers and students unlimited access to its full-length video making services for free, while Animoto for Business allows for Animoto to be used commercially. Since an overwhelming number of professional photographers started to use the Animoto for Business product, Animoto for Photography [13] was launched in October 2008 at PhotoPlus in New York City. Since launching, Animoto for Photography has attended every national photography convention, including the Professional Photographers of America's Imaging Conference & WPPI. Animoto for Real Estate is another off-shoot of the commercial product, which officially launched at the Inman Connect Conference in San Francisco in July 2009. Animoto's pro-package is a White-label product. In June 2009, the Animoto iPhone app was launched,[14] allowing iPhone users to create video using pictures taken on their phone.[15] In August 2009, Animoto launched the ability to upload video clips, along with still images.[16] This has been the largest advance to the Animoto offering thus far. In April 2011 the company added functionality for Apple TV and AirPlay users. .[17]


Webby Award winner in the "Best Services & Design" category; Webby Award winner - People's Voice Award in the "Best Services & Design" category; SXSW's Interactive Award in the "Best Film/Website" category; BBC's Click "Top Websites of 2008"; PC Magazine's "Top 100 Undiscovered Websites of 2008"; TechCrunch's Crunchies Runner-Up for Best Design [18] Animoto gained considerable press around the Webby Awards, not only due to their win, but because of their speech. The Huffington Post placed the Animoto acceptance speech in their top 12 moments of the Webby Awards Ceremony.[19] Animoto's CFO, Nathan Meagher, wore a wig & disrobed to leopard skin tights in front of a surprised audience & Webby Awards host, Seth Meyers of SNL fame. Eventually screaming "Thank you, New York.... WOOOOO," (due to the 5 word maximum speech limit at the Webby Awards), Animoto grew considerable attention for the outlandish speech.

Operating system Any (web based application) Platform Type License Website Ruby on Rails Student information system, ERP Apache License 2.0 www.projectfedena.org [1]

Fedena is an open source school management software developed on Ruby on Rails framework. It is a web 2.0 web application being developed by Foradian Technologies.

Developed on the Ruby on Rails frame work with MVC architecture. The application is composed of a basic module which satisfies all the necessary requirements of a simple SIS. There are lot of add on modules which can be installed easily to extend the power and usability.

Basic System Modules
The basic system of fedena contains modules related to Admission, Student Details, Manage Users, Manage News, Examination, Timetable and Attendance.

Add on modules are being developed by fedena developers as well as contributors worldwide. It includes Finance, Human Resource, Hostel Management, Placement Management etc.

Value Added Services
The system also provides support to SMS services by integrating an SMS gateway. Also the fees and donations can be collected online by integrating a payment gateway.

Integration with other services
Development community is planning integration with the opensource learning management systems like moodle.

The fedena project is owned by Foradian Technologies, an internet engineering company based in India.

Name and Logo
Fedena was initially named as 'foredu', as it was the first educational software from foradian technologies. But the domain name was already taken and the development team thought of something unique and web 2.0 and they selected 'fedena'. It means the coolest thing alive, usually meaning something come from royalty or from wealth. The name fedena is also motivated from Athena, the greek goddess of wisdom. Athena appears attended by an owl. So the creative team of fedena selected owl as the symbol and derived the logo from the face of an owl. Owl is also the symbol of wisdom and knowledge in many mythologies and beliefs.

Deployment and development
Fedena started the development in June 2009. It is currently in Version 2.0 which was released on Aug15, 2010. Fedena is available as opensource at www.projectfedena.org [1]

The expansion of the Internet during the 1990s brought about a new class of centralized computing. invoicing. Starting at that decade. contemporary software as a service solutions are predominantly web-based and only require an internet browser to use.[5] History Centralized hosting of business application dates back to the 1960s..[3] SaaS sales in 2010 have reached $9B. published in February 2001 by the Software & Information Industry's (SIIA) eBusiness Division. the term Software as a Service (SaaS) is often used in the context of business applications. Software as a service is essentially an extension of the idea of the ASP model. Application service providers provided businesses with the service of hosting and managing specialized business applications.[6] . however. and are projected to increase to $10. often referred to as time-sharing or utility computing.[1] By now.

The SaaS acronym is said to have first appeared in an article called "Strategic Backgrounder: Software as a Service". and. The concept of SaaS has been popularized by Salesforce. including accounting. Gartner Group also estimates that SaaS applications.com. SaaS has become a common delivery model for most business applications. collaboration. IBM and other mainframe providers conducted a service bureau business. normally using a web browser over the Internet. human resource management (HRM). whereas the software architecture used by most initial application service providers mandated maintaining a separate instance of the application for each business.2% from 2010. Such services included offering computing power and database storage to banks and other large organizations from their worldwide data centers. with the goal of reducing cost by central administration and through the solution provider's specialization in a particular business application. enterprise resource planning (ERP). would represent at least 16% of worldwide software sales by 2014. is commonly used in more specific settings: whereas most initial application service providers focused on managing and hosting third-party independent software vendors' software. which coined the term "The End of Software" to differentiate its (then new) software-as-a-service approach from its competition. SaaS has been incorporated into the strategy of all leading enterprise software companies. and in some cases even more narrowly as software in a category which has on-premises software. and partitions its data accordingly. equivalent applications that are installed in businesses' computer networks or personal computers." is a software delivery model in which software and its associated data are hosted centrally (typically in the (Internet) cloud) and are typically accessed by users using a thin client. customer relationship management (CRM). in which the application is designed to serve multiple businesses and users.

e. however. setting up a new customer) in a multi-tenant environment enables some SaaS vendors to offer applications using the freemium model. such as the number of users ("seats") using the application.[7] Whether multi-tenancy is a necessary component for software-as-a-service is a topic of controversy. which involves applying economies of scale to application operation. the application is installed on multiple machines (called horizontal scaling). a second version of the application is set up to offer a select group of customers with access to pre-release versions of the applications (e. where multiple physical copies of the software—each potentially of a different version. is used for all customers ("tenants").g. The application can be customized to the degree it was designed for based on a set of predefined configuration options. many SaaS applications let customers provide (through a self service interface or by working with application provider staff) a custom logo and sometimes a set of custom colors. While an exception rather the norm. SaaS applications tend to not support what is traditionally known as application customization. with a potentially different configuration. conventionally sold as a perpetual license with an associated up-front fee (and.e. The relatively low cost for user provisioning (i. However.

Consequently.. the initial setup cost for SaaS is typically lower than the equivalent enterprise software. In this model. some SaaS solutions do not use multi-tenancy. With this model. event. SaaS providers generally price applications using a subscription fee.[8] Characteristics While not all software-as-a-service applications share all traits.e. In some cases. i. a set of configuration options (a. A key driver of SaaS growth is SaaS vendors' ability to provide a price that is competitive with on-premises software. the characteristics below are common among many SaaS applications: Configuration. SaaS vendors typically price their applications based on some usage parameters. Instead. and oftentimes customized—are installed across the various customer sites. most commonly a monthly fee or an annual fee. or use other mechanisms—such as virtualization—to cost-effectively manage a large number of customers in place of multi-tenancy. This is contrasted with traditional software.

To support scalability. multi-tenant applications are designed to support application configuration. i. Some other SaaS applications are completely free to users.. or other unit of value. smaller ongoing support fees). For example: to support customers' common need to change an application's look-and-feel so that the application appears to be having the customer's brand (or—if so desired—co-branded).. Each customer may have its own settings (or: parameter values) for the configuration options. unlike traditional enterprise software. In other words. and fees are charged for enhanced functionality or larger scope. cheaper. because in a SaaS environment customers' data resides with the SaaS vendor. typically. with revenue being derived from alternate sources such as advertising. with a single configuration (hardware. a single customer cannot alter the source code of the application. change the page layout unless such an option was designed for. parameters) that affect its functionality and look-and-feel. not customization Driven by a multi-tenancy architecture. more reliable applications.

Several other SaaS applications let users vote on and offer new feature ideas. they predominantly offer integration protocols and application programming interfaces (APIs) that operate over a wide area network. creating a compound service.0 functionality. traditional software vendors' investment in software based on fat clients has become a disadvantage (mandating ongoing support). • The standardization of the web stack (HTML. Typically. . in many cases on a weekly or monthly basis. The ubiquity of SaaS applications and other Internet services and the standardization of their API technology has spawned development of mashups. these are protocols based on HTTP. which are lightweight applications that combine data. HTTP). continuously decreased the need for traditional client-server applications. and the introduction and ubiquitousness of web application frameworks gradually reduced the cost of developing new SaaS solutions. Collaborative (and "social") functionality Inspired by the success of online social networks and other so-called web 2. • The application vendor has access to all customer data. along with the proliferation of associated practices (e. making it easier to identify areas worthy of improvement. Adoption drivers Several important changes to the software market and technology landscape have facilitated acceptance and growth of SaaS solutions: • The growing use of web-based user interfaces by applications. • The application only has a single configuration. REST. making development testing faster. Mashups further differentiate SaaS applications from on-premises software as the latter cannot be easily integrated outside a company's firewall.. and enabled new solution providers to come up with competitive solutions. • The solution provider has access to user behavior within the application (usually via web analytics). While some collaboration-related functionality is also integrated into on-premises software. CSS. which have evolved in the mid-1990's. web design). JavaScript. This is enabled by several factors: • The application is hosted centrally. so new releases can be put in place without requiring customers to physically install new software. Such methodologies. provide a set of software development tools and practices to support frequent software releases. many project management applications delivered in the SaaS model offer—in addition to traditional project planning functionality—collaboration features letting users comment on tasks and plans and share documents within and outside an organization. Open integration protocols Since SaaS applications cannot access a company's internal systems (databases or internal services). Accelerated feature delivery is further enabled by agile software development methodologies[10] .g. • The increasing penetration of broadband Internet access enabled remote centrally-hosted applications to offer speed comparable to on-premises software. presentation and functionality from multiple services. Consequently. the increasing popularity of web development as a practice. For example. expediting design and regression testing. opening the door for new software vendors offering a user experience perceived as more "modern". (implicit or explicit) collaboration between users of different customers is only possible with centrally-hosted software. many SaaS applications offer features that let its users collaborate and share information.
