IT Cloud Services

SaaS, PaaS, and IaaS are simply three ways to describe how you can use the cloud for your business.

IaaS: cloud-based services, pay-as-you-go for services such as storage, networking, and virtualization.

PaaS: hardware and software tools available over the internet.

SaaS: software that’s available via a third-party over the internet.

On-premise: software that’s installed in the same building as your business.

CaaS: Containers as a service (CaaS) is a cloud service that allows software developers and IT departments to upload, organize, run, scale, manage and stop containers by using container-based virtualization. A CaaS provider will commonly provide a framework which allows users to make use of the service.


Majorly there are three categories of Cloud Computing Services:

a) Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) : It provides only a base infrastructure (Virtual machine, Software Define Network, Storage attached). End user have to configure and manage platform and environment, deploy applications on it.

AWS (EC2), GCP (CE), Microsoft Azure (VM) are examples of Iaas.

b) Software as a Service (SaaS) : It is sometimes called to as “on-demand software”. Typically accessed by users using a thin client via a web browser. In SaaS everything can be managed by vendors: applications, runtime, data, middleware, OSes, virtualization, servers, storage and networking, End users have to use it.

GMAIL is Best example of SaaS. Google team managing everything just we have to use the application through any of client or in browsers. Other examples SAP, Salesforce .

c) Platform as a Service (PaaS): It provides a platform allowing end user to develop, run, and manage applications without the complexity of building and maintaining the infrastructure.
