What is Platform as-a-Service (PaaS)
Platform as a Service (PaaS) is a cloud-based environment you can use to develop, test, run and manage your applications on. This approach delivers the development environment you need, without the complexity of buying, building or managing the underlying infrastructure. As a result, you can work faster and release your applications quicker.
Who uses PaaS and why?
Developers look to PaaS to go to market faster, innovate and experiment with new technologies using existing public, private or hybrid cloud infrastructures.
How does PaaS work?
PaaS enables developers to accelerate the pace of applications developments while reducing complexity. Users can provision, deploy and manage applications using one unified management system.
What are the benefits of PaaS?
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. It provides all of the facilities required to support the complete lifecycle of building and delivering web-based applications.
