Data Center as a Service (DCaaS) is a hosting service in which physical data center infrastructure and facilities are provisioned to clients. DCaaS allows clients remote access to the provider’s storage, server and networking resources through a Wide-Area Network (WAN).
By outsourcing to a service provider, companies can resolve logistical and budgetary problems related to their on-site data centers. Many businesses rely on DCaaS to remedy the physical limitations of their on-site infrastructure, or to offload the hosting and management of non-mission-critical applications.
While WAN downtime can disrupt remote access, DCaaS is easier to scale up and down than an on-site data center, and its usage-based cost can help control spending with predictable pricing.
