What is PaaS?
Platform as a service (PaaS) is a complete development and deployment ecosystem for the cloud.
PaaS hides the complexity and need to manage the underlying infrastructure. With PaaS, businesses can avoid the expense and complexity of buying and managing the disparate software licenses and the underlying application infrastructure and simply manage the applications and services they develop.
For example, PaaS services on Azure include:
- Web servers
- File storage
- Message queues and service buses
- Machine learning services
- Big data services
