  • Furht and Escalante 2010 (†583 p.340): Unlimited storage space is used to store the user’s data regardless of its type, charged per GByte for data size and data transfer. (†1177)
  • McLelland, et al. 2014 (†403 9): A fourth type of cloud service has been dubbed Data as a Service (DaaS). This type “is typically implemented within a SaaS, PaaS or IaaS solution and provides (often spatial) data within applications that support more specialized data discovery, access, manipulation, and use.” [Text includes citations] (†462)
  • Wikipedia (†387 s.v. "DaaS"): Data as a Service, or DaaS, is a cousin of software as a service.[1] Like all members of the "as a Service" (aaS) family, DaaS is based on the concept that the product, data in this case, can be provided on demand[2] to the user regardless of geographic or organizational separation of provider and consumer. Additionally, the emergence of service-oriented architecture (SOA) has rendered the actual platform on which the data resides also irrelevant.[3] This development has enabled the recent emergence of the relatively new concept of DaaS. Data provided as a service was at first primarily used in Web mashups, but now is being increasingly employed both commercially and, less commonly, within organisations such as the UN.[4] (†461)
