PaaS (Platform as a Service)

PaaS, or Platform-as-a-Service, is a cloud platform for building, operating, and managing applications that is comprehensive, adaptable, and cost-effective.

It gives clients a comprehensive cloud platform—hardware, software, and infrastructure—for developing, operating, and managing applications without the expense, complexity, or inflexibility that comes with establishing and maintaining one on-premises.

PaaS solutions are made up of three basic components:

Benefits Of PaaS (Platform as a Service) For Your Business The following are the advantages of PaaS over an on-premises platform:

Fast and easy

PaaS eliminates the requirement to purchase and install the necessary hardware and software to set up and maintain your application development platform. All that is necessary is to start deploying resources and developing straight away using the PaaS provided by the cloud service provider.

Access to a greater range of resources at a lower cost

Most PaaS platforms provide access to a greater range of options up and down the application stack—including operating systems, middleware, databases, and development tools—than most businesses can manage alone.

Freedom to experiment, with low risk

PaaS also allows you to experiment with new operating systems, languages, and other technologies without having to spend much on them or the infrastructure needed to support them.

Cost-effective scalability

With an on-premises platform, scaling is always expensive, often wasteful and sometimes inadequate: You have to purchase additional compute, storage and networking capacity in anticipation of traffic spikes; much of that capacity sits idle during low-traffic periods, and none of it can be increased in time to accommodate unanticipated surges. With PaaS, you can purchase additional capacity, and start using it immediately, whenever you need it.

Greater flexibility for development teams

PaaS services provide a shared software development environment that allows development and operations teams access to all the tools they need, from any location with an internet connection.

Lower costs

Clearly PaaS reduces costs by enabling an organization to avoid capital equipment expenses associated with building and scaling an application platform. But PaaS also can also reduce or eliminate software licensing costs. And by handling patches, updates and other administrative tasks, PaaS can reduce your overall application management costs.
