Cannabis LIMS for QA and Medical Research

SaaS and Cloud Hosting

More and more, the need for labs to have their own application servers is being replaced by the advent of Cloud-hosted solutions.[1] This is especially true in the laboratory market, with budgets aimed at maximizing core services rather than extensive IT infrastructure.[2] If the LIS is offered as a hosted Software as a Service (SaaS) or Cloud-hosted product, then it, its hosting infrastructure and associated services need to meet certain standards and requirements.
