Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS)

Platform-as-a-service (PaaS) is a compute environment accessed—as needed—over a network from a service provider. PaaS is used to develop and run software as an alternative to designing, building, and installing an in-house development and production environment.

How PaaS works

PaaS enables the creation and deployment of web-based application software without the cost and complexity of buying and managing underlying hardware, operating software, and utilities. The PaaS environment provides the entire IT resource stack as a service from a service provider over the Internet. It provides all of the facilities required to support the complete lifecycle of building and delivering web-based applications.
