Platform as a Service (PaaS)
PaaS includes a computing platform and a solution stack delivered "as a Service," where the user creates an application or service using tools and/or libraries from the provider. The user controls software deployment and configuration settings. The provider provides the networks, servers, storage and other services required to host the user's application.
Public Cloud PaaS revenue is expected to nearly double from 2014 to 2018 as vendors expand their presence into emerging markets.
South America, EMEA and APJ are expected to contribute more to the geographical revenue mix for PaaS by 2018.
