The present market of cloud computing uses service models of SaaS, PaaS and IaaS. These models would be very soon replaced with XaaS or Anything as a service model. With this announcement a buzz of why should XaaS be used has started in the market. To explain it its very crucial to explain first what XaaS is. To the people who are raising this query let us inform them that XaaS is term used to describe a package that includes SaaS, PaaS and IaaS in it. Through XaaS it is possible to displace entire IT service currently used. From displacing your computer to displacing the use of software all of this can be done with XaaS.
DaaS, desktop as a service is an example of XaaS. This product can be assembled with servers that can be run Virtual Desktop Infrastructure from IaaS, an office suite like Microsoft Office365 or SaaS, maintenance of services and Chromebook or thin client device. The company that offers you DaaS would assemble the best product amongst the lot available. For the customer it is all the more useful as he would get all the services in one price. The creation of XaaS from all the available resources points out that the industry of cloud computing is slowly facing an evolution like Windows vps has faced.
DaaS has been created after assembling different applications such as virtual desktop infrastructure etc. This is something not new in the market. Other industries such as auto industry for an example are running on assembling only. The industry uses parts that are manufactured by different industries and finally assembles the parts to prepare the final product. This is exactly what cloud computing has done in XaaS.
Another very crucial question is why should we use XaaS? This question can be answered with the saying that through XaaS, the commodity service provided by IT companies to their customers can be easily displaced. The revenue generated to the IT companies is negligible through commodity services thus displacing them through XaaS would not be a very wrong option. Two examples of commodity service are email service and desktops. These services are not revenue fetching in nature thus wasting your staff in maintenance of emails would hardly do you any benefit. Still if you do not maintain them you can face a severe backlog thus it is very necessary in this case to use them but in a cost effective way. This is what Xaas wants to achieve.
