This is a more technical blog post than usual, but the subject of what keeps Flowhub running in the face of infrastructure and security challenges is inherently technical. Buckle up and come along for the ride.
Much of modern software is delivered using a model known as SaaS, “Software as a Service”, where users no longer install software on their local computers, but have it delivered via the web, or a web-enabled app. Think Gmail. There are many advantages to this model: the user doesn’t have to install anything, software can easily be updated with new features with no effort by the user, the software can be used from a variety of locations and devices, and so on. For this reason, Flowhub, like many other vendors in the cannabis industry, uses SaaS to distribute its POS and Grow solutions.
