As the name implies, STRM Privacy can provide the Data Plane as a Service. This is the default mode that STRM Privacy is operating in when you first create your account. This is also the only mode that the account type with a free subscription can run on.
Benefits of using the SaaS Data Plane:
- Zero effort to deploy
- Easy to get started
- Upgrades are taken care of
You might consider hosting your own Data Plane, if:
- You require data never leaving your (cloud) infrastructure
- You require encryption keys never leaving your (cloud) infrastructure
- You can benefit from (sustained) discounts for running your infrastructure resources
To start using the Data Plane in SaaS, follow along with the language examples in the quickstart section.
