What is PaaS? Platform as a service

  • Platform as a service (PaaS) is a cloud computing model where a third-party provider delivers hardware and software tools to users over the internet. These tools are needed for application development.
  • A PaaS provider hosts the hardware and software on its own infrastructure.
  • PaaS frees developers from having to install in-house hardware and software to develop or run a new application.
  • PaaS does not replace a company’s entire IT infrastructure for software development.
  • It is provided through a cloud service provider’s hosted infrastructure.
  • PaaS can be delivered through public, private and hybrid clouds to deliver services such as application hosting and Java development.

PaaS services:

  • Development team collaboration.
  • Application design and development.
  • Application testing and deployment.
  • Web service integration.
  • Information security.
  • Database integration.
