Everything-as-a-Service (XaaS)

Everything-as-a-Service (XaaS) is a cloud computing term for the extensive variety of services and applications emerging for users to access on demand over the Internet as opposed to being utilized via on-premises means.

Examples of XaaS

Everything-as-a-Service originated as software-as-a-service (SaaS) and has since expanded to include services such as infrastructure-as-a-service, platform-as-a-service, storage-as-a-service, desktop-as-a-service, disaster recovery-as-a-service, and even nascent operations like marketing-as-a-service and healthcare-as-a-service.

XaaS and Anything-as-a-Service

Also known as anything-as-a-service, everything-as-a-service facilities the flexibility for users and companies to customize their computing environments to craft the experiences they desire, all on demand. XaaS is dependent on a strong cloud services platform and reliable Internet connectivity to successfully gain traction and acceptance among both individuals and enterprises.
