What is SaaS and Why is it Ideal for an Encoding Platform?

The rules of software as we have known them are rapidly changing and the traditional models are giving way to the power of the web and network capabilities. Software once came on punch cards, then magnetic tape, then floppy disks, then compact disks, then over the internet, then over the app store. We have finally entered a world in which software does not have to come to you at all: you can access it over the web, perform all processing from a remote machine, and store your data on the cloud where it is useful and available to you from anywhere you can find an internet connection.

Encoding Platform

Encodio – SaaS Encoding Platform

This revolution is called Software as a Service (SaaS). It is also accompanied by the ideas of Platform as a Service (PaaS) and Database as a Service (DBaaS). All of these concepts and new working models free the user from having to manage the resources, upgrades, and other complications of having these services run natively on a local machine or network. SaaS is technically much like running software from a mainframe, but it is so much more powerful because it is hosted and run on the cloud. Load balancing, security, upgrades, scaling, backup, recovery, and data storage are all handled over the cloud and the user simply has to access the software from a web interface.

This model is ideal for the problem of encoding video. Encoding video can be one of the most processor-intensive activities a standard machine or server can perform. A cloud based encoding platform can not only balance the load of many simultaneous encodings with efficiency and effective results, it can do so remotely as your own computing resources are put to your own tasks. Furthermore, the resulting encoded video can be accessed from anywhere and placed directly into cloud storage or a content delivery network.
