Helping Cloud Hosting Experts Understand SaaS

Imagine housing your mission critical professional data in tiny individual molecules. Especially to IT reps in all areas of the business, molecules now hold a very vital key to unlocking ultra-efficient data storage. Soon, data center operators will be able to store insane amounts of data in specialized layers of molecules. It might sound incredible, but recently the concept has become fact. Dubbed “molecular memory,” in a decade’s time it could mean that IT reps will be saving as much as 1,000TB of data in as little as a square inch of space. Hopefully the outcome will be more energy- and space-efficient data centers across the globe.

It’s an exciting prospect that, if nothing else, will push forward the discovery of even more alternatives to traditional data storage. Researchers at the Indian Institute of Science Education and Research (IISER) first developed the molecule that was used in the research, which was conducted in an MIT lab.

How Does Molecular Memory Work?

The technique works by manipulating the magnetic state of the unique molecule. Each individual molecule represents a binary number, either a one or a zero, depending on its state of magnetism. The result is molecular memory, or the ability to cache more data in a smaller amount of space than is possible with any other method currently available.

The Process

With the recent leap forward in the technology, researchers have made inroads in specific manufacturing phases that will shave off some of the cost of manufacturing as well as produce a product that will be kept cool more easily. This last part will be a selling point to IT personnel who are always on the lookout for effective ways to control the temperature in their facilities.

What the Future Holds for “Molecular Memory”

The team of researchers at MIT was led by Jagadeesh Moodera, who anticipates that the final version of the “molecular memory” device will be available on shelves within the next ten years. Hopefully these systems will ultimately take the place of traditional SSD storage devices across the board and will drastically decrease energy usage and waste.

As data center operators worldwide strive to cut costs and enhance performance, this technology comes not a moment too soon. Moodera hopes that the results of the research will generate interest in the continued development of these types of memory solutions.

SaaS Cloud provides scalable, simpler to manage, and cost-effective infrastructure solutions so that SaaS providers can focus on dazzling customers, not obsessing over infrastructure.

SaaS Vendor Control
With SaaS, the vendor is in control, not the customer. For the early days of Cloud Computing, that was an acceptable compromise, but times have changed and the cloud has evolved.  SaaS is great first step towards Cloud Computing, but it also has an important drawback: control. For all practical purposes, your data is not yours anymore. The SaaS vendor has full control over it; can mine it; and can lock you out of it. For consumers, this is generally not a problem, but for the enterprise, it is a concern.

Why SaaS Cloud Computing?
SaaS Cloud Computing, is a computation offered as a service supported by a pool of distributed computing resources by a vendor or cloud hosting company, also known as utility computing or grid computing. Cloud Companies provide sharing and management of large amounts of distributed data across the cloud.

Software as a service (SaaS) is software that is deployed over the internet and/or is deployed to run behind a firewall in your local area network or personal computer. With SaaS, a provider licenses an application to customers as a service on demand, through a subscription or a “pay-as-you-go” model. Saas is also called “software on demand.” SaaS was initially widely deployed for sales force automation and Customer Relationship Management (CRM). Now, it has become commonplace for many businesses tasks, including computerized billing, invoicing, human resource management, and service desk management.
