What is Platform as-a-Service (PaaS)
PaaS is a new application platform that abstracts infrastructure completely, and provides developers a set of standard application development frameworks, services, and templates for developing modern applications. PaaS can run on Private, Public, or Hybrid Cloud models – but is best when on a Hybrid Cloud and uses open PaaS tools to enable inter-cloud application portability for new apps.
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.
