Techopedia Explains Application Delivery as a Service

In some ways, application delivery as a service suffers from some of the complicated semantics of today’s IT industry. Application delivery as a service is a subset of the general idea of software as a service – software as a service involves offering a given software package through the cloud or the internet, as opposed to on a physical medium such as a compact disc.

Application delivery as a service is more about assisting with the deployment of an application somewhere in a network. Experts often describe application delivery as a service as including elements of software-defined networking and automating the deployment of an application in a network. Generally speaking, application delivery as a service provides new models for resource pooling and elastic scaling of systems.
