Saas

Description

ARender SaaS offers an entry point to the browser accessible part of ARender.

Its interface is highly customizable (CSS, configuration properties, Javascript API) and provides as well a set of annotation tools that you’ll obtain if you opt-in to the storage of those annotations onto the SaaS servers.

ARender SaaS offers you 300+ formats of documents supported, in one browser window, one interface. No hardware, versions upgrade costs, we do this for you.

Compared to an installed version you may deploy on your own infrastructure, you can as well be sure to possess the same advertised experience in terms of performance as anybody else using ARender SaaS: all users of ARender SaaS get the full speed of the service, no paywall !

To have access to ARender SaaS, you’ll need to have a mean to authenticate your users through SAML 2.0 (see dedicated section for more details). ARender SaaS does not handle the security, so that you keep the control over your documents, we just relay you the login requests.

Location

WhereIsARenderSaaS

ARender SaaS is hosted under Google Cloud Platform (GCP) .

We see GCP as a provider of Kubernetes and we avoid to the maximum to rely on any provider specific technologies that we would not be able to run anywhere else.

Our choice of GCP, came first as a choice of reasonable price for our customers of ARender: three years ago we decided to move to GCP to host our demo website as a proof of concept that at this time, GCP was already a viable option.

Since then, we did not receive any interruption of service, or issue, caused by the provider. We could reliably run Kubernetes in GCP for all those years, and thus plan to continue this way forward.

GCP provides all security, data protection, performance our customers may need, and we encourage you to try the platform with us.

If you are still reluctant in using GCP as a host for your temporary documents sent to ARender SaaS, we can consider making you an adapted quote on the other major Cloud providers as long as they support a Kubernetes service stack.
