HaaS is essentially like leasing the network equipment, such as servers, which your business would otherwise have to purchase, and it almost always includes a maintenance/support contract. Combined with a service level agreement (SLA) from a managed services provider (MSP) that covers all aspects of your technology needs - can eliminate a lot of hardware headaches and provide some big benefits, such as:
- Cost Reduction
- Automation, Updates, & Upgrades
- Flexibility & Scalability
- Increased Security
- Long-term Relationships With a Service Provider
For companies that are looking for the alternative to paying the cost of hardware upfront, HaaS can be a lifesaver.
