Module 8: SaaS Implementation

Accessing Services from SaaS User

We have gone through the steps to configure the SaaS server for software development in the previous slides. In the coming slides, we will look into accessing the services from SaaS user.   

The user can access the service from the server by using the default URL, which is http:///sessionmanager (Read as: h-t-t-p-colon-forward slash-forward slash-ipaddress-forward slash-sessionmanager). After getting access to the URL, the user must select the user to login, and then insert the password. After filling in these fields, the user must click on ‘login’ button given on the screen. If the credentials are perfect, the user will get the dedicated access to the selected user portal.

On clicking the ‘login’ button on the screen, the dedicated user portal screen will appear. The user should always click on the ‘Run’ button given on the screen whenever a digital signing window pops up. The screenshot on the slide shows the digital signing popup window that a user is likely to see. Further, after clicking on ‘run’ button on the screen, the user must click on the ‘Open Office’ option to access the software through the web-browser. This option is displayed under ‘My applications’ tab on the left pane.

The user will now be directed to the welcome screen of (Read as: openoffice-dot-o-r-g).This screen shows the software being accessed through the web browser. This also shows a perfect hardware independence of the software that is being used by the user.

So far, we have discussed accessing the services from SaaS server. In the next slide, we will move on to the load balancing policy.

Load balancing, as we have discussed in the previous module, can be implemented in the SaaS server. Load balancing can be done with respect to RAM, CPU, and user connections. This feature will help the server to maintain business continuity.

In order to perform any setting on the load balancing policy, the user can go to the ‘Configuration’ tab of the administrator portal; and click on the server settings. Later, the user can set the load balancing policy as per the load needs.
