Nutanix OS is not SaaS, there is no conversion to SaaS. They are offering the OS under subscription terms. But Core OS is 100% on premises, not SaaS.

Actually, this is a common misunderstanding. SaaS is a licensing model in which one pays for software on an as used basis, a subscription where the cost per time period depends on the amount of the service one uses. It is associated with cloud delivery since that is a common way that companies centralize resources and dynamically respond to the usage level, but there is nothing about the licensing model which requires the use of the cloud. There are many vendors who sell products in an on-prem SaaS licensing model or a mixture of on-prem and cloud.
