Data Management as a Service (DMaaS) is a cloud service that can store data from various data sources. The DMaaS service backs up raw data and metadata from various file servers, virtual machines, Storage-as-a-Service
(SaaS), and other applications. The performance of the DMaaS service depends on how much effort
isrequired to manage the data
forthe customer. Such a service can be installed at the cloud service provider
(CSP) or directly at the customer's site. However, the CSP provider is responsible forprovisioning
and managing the DMaaS service and the data stored in it.A DMaaS service stands for complete data collection and storage, which stores data from all areas of the business, servers, desktops, tablets, smartphones
, and cloud services. Backups and recovery are made much easier because there is a single backup copy of all data on the DMaaS service. Since all cloud services are independent of the user's location, authorized employees in the office and in the field have immediate access to all data worldwide. By outsourcing the company's data to a central storage platform, finding data for projects and for customer services becomes much faster and easier. In addition, from a cost-benefit perspective, such an MDaaS service is less expensive than purchasing, installing and managing a company's own storage platform.
