Platform As A Service (PaaS)

Platform As A Service (PaaS)


Platform as a service, or PaaS, is a cloud computing model that provides users with hosted development kits, database tools, and application management capabilities. Companies often use PaaS clouds as scalable platforms for new or expanding applications to larger audiences. This avoids long-term investments in development time and middleware through a pay-as-you-grow model.

Advantages of PaaS

  • Cut coding time.
  • Add development capabilities without adding staff.
  • Develop for multiple platforms—including mobile—more easily.
  • Use sophisticated tools affordably.
  • Support geographically distributed development teams.
  • Efficiently manage the application lifecycle.



PaaS solutions significantly cut the setup time and cost needed for building software and applications. PaaS software takes care of all the prebuilt infrastructure requirements, empowering users to start coding right away.


With a wide array of development tools and features for a business' needs and requirements, including but not limited to, text editors, code libraries, code snippets, frameworks, and more.


PaaS solutions can be used to create diverse products, ranging from solutions to databases to applications and beyond.


PaaS software provides high-level management capabilities for pre-, mid-, and post-development stages. These might include reporting, code management, tracking, and other functions.


PaaS software gives companies the capability to deploy their software where they need it and then maintain that software with management features once deployed.


PaaS solutions allow developers to build software more quickly with prebuilt backend infrastructure. Therefore, less time setting up the framework for their software or applications, more saved time to strengthen the software’s performance and features. 


PaaS solutions are cloud-based, so it can scale development and hosting according to a business’ need(s) without putting the infrastructure burden on the business itself.


Most PaaS solutions will offer pay-as-you-grow pricing options based on usage levels, making them particularly beneficial for companies as they are able to build at a low cost and then scale as the need or demand rises.
