The hardware-as-a-service (HaaS) model is a business licensing or leasing model in which customers pay for the services provided by the hardware instead of buying it. This allows organizations to lease IT assets to a vendor instead of buying them, providing them with an advantage over their competitors by allowing them to own cutting-edge technology at a low cost. Maintenance services include both hardware maintenance and support services and network software maintenance and support services. Software support services do not include the purchase of subscriptions that grant rights and rights to use future minor versions (one-off versions) or future major versions of the software.
Like the Software-as-a-Service approach, technology service providers offer an “always-on and up-to-date” approach to purchasing hardware for businesses. Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) is a cloud-based service that provides the IT hardware needed to meet customer needs, since IT hardware, or its resources, are provided remotely from a data center and through Internet connections. For example, instead of buying several new laptops and adding installation, security and support services for these devices, companies can choose to pay a monthly fee, which includes everything they need with the devices and will offer scheduled device updates every two years, within the same monthly package. This type of service is also very useful for companies that use a remote or decentralized workforce.
Hardware as a Service (HaaS) is an efficient way for organizations to access the latest technology without having to purchase it outright. It can respond to the budgetary and hardware demands of organizations while providing them with access to cutting-edge technology. To ensure efficient service delivery, MicroAge is Canada's leading provider of IT solutions and services, focusing mainly on small and medium-sized businesses in the market. In some cases, software support services may include services for installing new products, installing product updates, migrations of major software versions, and other types of proactive or reactive on-site services.
