Length: 4 pages
As a Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) provider, rapid customer acquisition is the core objective. However, rapid top-line growth presents significant IT challenges, including:
- Overtaxed network infrastructures and hardware resources due to customer onboarding
- Decreased capacity increasing the risk of performance degradation
- The need to quickly procure additional hardware capacity and increase your footprint in the cloud
- And more
For many SaaS providers (or anyone looking to understand SaaS from a provider perspective), balancing the risks of application performance degradation (and customer dissatisfaction) with the risks of inflated IT infrastructure costs is an ongoing concern that consumes valuable time, resources and money.
This white paper outlines how leveraging the right database driver can enable you to make optimal use of available resources thereby increasing existing processing capacity and enhancing architectural elasticity. Find out how these benefits will help you easily onboard new customers and assimilate volume processing spikes during peak customer usage.
