Why AWS is the best public cloud provider for SaaS

SaaS (News - Alert) is a rapidly growing market, tipped to reach £140 billion by 2022.

And for this reason, all major public cloud providers are eager to offer services tailored to the needs of SaaS companies.

But while Google (News - Alert) Cloud Platform and Azure certainly have some powerful solutions when it comes to provisioning cloud infrastructure for SaaS, there are a few reasons why AWS comes out the winner.

In this piece, we’ll be taking a further look at why AWS and SaaS are a match made in heaven.

1. SaaS focussed resources 

The AWS SaaS Factory program offers lots of ways for SaaS companies to up their game.

There are in-depth technical resources spanning case studies, whitepapers and insights. 

And on top, users can engage with experts in a variety of ways, from taught modules to in-person events.

2. The APN 

SaaS companies can choose from a vast array of AWS partners and search by filtering for SaaS based services.

From 24/7 support to DevOps, the APN is the perfect way of finding an AWS expert for your company’s needs.

AWS thoroughly vet each and every partner, so you can be sure of finding the right one.

The real value of this is that any new initiatives or experiments will always be well supported.

3. Powerful SaaS architectures 

Though there are many ways of building AWS architectures for SaaS, there are some options that stand out.

Serverless and SaaS are often touted as a made for each other, and AWS’ serverless offering Lambda is one of the most mature and flexible offerings on the market. 

There’s also AWS Fargate for a serverless approach to containers and AWS Aurora Serverless.

Elsewhere, AWS offers many options for achieving the kind of hyperscaling that often attracts companies to the SaaS based model in the first place.

The future of SaaS and cloud

If SaaS remains a leading delivery model, public cloud providers will continue to build products and services geared around it. However, in technology, nothing stays the same for long, and there’s always some other acronym on the horizon!
