Discover the difference between the cloud and SaaS

Saas and cloud-based products are often confused for the same thing, and while if a service exists in the cloud it can indeed be both, cloud-based services will not always be SaaS-based.

With cloud computing, a user can manage and customise their own software on a virtual server which is hosted by a third party. SaaS-based software is set up and ready to go, the user simply needs to have an internet connection and the ability to log in.
