The Role of Platform-as-a-Service

With so much buzz around Cloud Computing Services including Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS), Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) and Software-as-a-Service (SaaS), why does PaaS stand out the most? Is PaaS simply a way of getting code up and running without having to requisition a server or there is more to it? In the words of Wikipedia, ‘Platform as a service (PaaS) is the delivery of a computing platform and solution stack as a service’. PaaS makes all of the facilities required to support the end-to-end life cycle of building and delivering web applications and services entirely available from the Internet with no software downloads or installation for developers or end-users.

We have released the whitepaper "The Role of Platform-as-a-Service", entitled to communicate the various benefits of PaaS and how it can help you focus on your business challenges quickly and cost effectively. We hope you find it to be a useful and informative read and pass on your feedback.

Here's an Overview:

Platform-as-a-Service is an increasingly popular paradigm moving from just being a buzzword to the mainstream. A number of Startups, ISVs and Enterprises are now going directly to the cloud, bypassing traditional web hosting solutions, avoiding the need to own a server in-house, and shifting from the traditional model of software development to the new model offered by PaaS. This whitepaper talks about the shift from the traditional software development model to the new model offered by Platform-as-a-Service. It proceeds to discuss the various types of PaaS, key characteristics, advantages, monetization models to the service levels offered by PaaS providers...
