Platform as a service (PaaS)

Platform as a service (PaaS) is a cloud computing offering that provides users with a cloud environment in which they can develop, manage and deliver applications. In addition to storage and other computing resources, users are able to use a suite of prebuilt tools to develop, customize and test their own applications.

Key features

·         PaaS provides a platform with tools to test, develop and host applications in the same environment.

·         Enables organizations to focus on development without having to worry about underlying infrastructure.

·         Providers manage security, operating systems, server software and backups.

·         Facilitates collaborative work even if teams work remotely.

Software as a service (SaaS)  

Software as a service (SaaS)  is a cloud computing offering that provides users with access to a vendor’s cloud-based software. Users do not install applications on their local devices. Instead, the applications reside on a remote cloud network accessed through the web or an API. Through the application, users can store and analyze data and collaborate on projects.

Key features

·         SaaS vendors provide users with software and applications via a subscription model.

·         Users do not have to manage, install or upgrade software; SaaS providers manage this.

·         Data is secure in the cloud; equipment failure does not result in loss of data.

·         Use of resources can be scaled depending on service needs.

·         Applications are accessible from almost any internet-connected device, from virtually anywhere in the world.
