In the SaaS model cloud providers install and operate application software in the cloud and cloud users access the software from cloud clients. Cloud users do not manage the cloud infrastructure and platform where the application runs. This eliminates the need to install and run the application on the cloud user's own computers which simplifies maintenance and support. Cloud applications are different from other applications in their scalabilitywhich can be achieved by cloning tasks onto multiple virtual machines at run-time to meet changing work demand. 59 Load balancers distribute the work over the set of virtual machines. This process is transparent to the cloud user who sees only a single access point.
