Good day, ladies and gents!


Welcome to a new blog in the category of Cloud Computing! Today we will be discussing Platform as a Service or PaaS, which together with Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) and Software as a Service (SaaS) make whole the suite of services over the Internet.


Since a lot of companies have already been 'lured' by the mirage of the Cloud (actively considering or actually acting towards the 'over the Internet' approach), Platform as a Service is but a piece of the puzzle. More information on PaaS to be found in the following paragraphs.


BACKGROUND INFORMATION


PaaS


First things first. Let's start by conceptualizing Platform as a Service. For example, our friends over at Microsoft have defined PaaS as 'a complete development and deployment environment in the cloud, with resources that enable you to deliver everything from simple cloud-based apps to sophisticated, cloud-enabled enterprise applications. You purchase the resources you need from a cloud service provider on a pay-as-you-go basis and access them over a secure Internet connection.' In other words, PaaS is about 'renting out' the hardware and software included in an app-development platform from a seller that hosts everything in the Cloud.


However, PaaS does not completely replace the all of the IT assets within an enterprise. It simply just provides an extra layer of software development 'aid', available at the fingertips of the enterprise.


Platform as a Service can be deployed via several kinds of Clouds. We're talking private, public or hybrid Clouds, while working towards delivering services like design, development, testing and deployment.


WHERE CAN PaaS BE USED?

Among the scenarios in which Platform as a Service can be used, there are quite a few that can easily be spotted. For example, there is:


  • IoT - PaaS can provide IoT development enterprises with anything necessary for the continuity of the IoT project;


  • development of APIs - developming, managining, maintaining and deploying application programming interfaces has never been smoother;


  • analysis of business metrics & intelligence - the tools encompassed into PaaS greatly enhance corporate decision-making processes.


PaaS BENEFITS

Platform as a Service provides countless benefits the the enterprise that decides to go with this approach. It is worth, thus, mentioning:


  • cutting down development time - by always having all the necessary tools at their fingertips, the time for coding is signinifcantly reduced;


  • accessibility & scalability - PaaS knows no geographic boundaries, while adapting with the company's upscaling or downscaling requirements;


  • ehanced affordability from the client's side - the 'pay only for what you need' model greatly helps enterprises maintain IT expenditure at an optimal level;


  • fewer risks - being already tested and quality-checked by the vendor, the risks for malfunctions and bugs to be found after implementing PaaS is minimal.


THE BOTTOM LINE


Platform as a Service is part of a great whole, a whole that leads the 'cloudification' and digital transformation of enterprises. The benefits it yields cannot be unseen. Stay tuned to our Community for more content about new technologies and news from the Telecom world!
