Platform as a Service (PaaS)

Alletec helps you leverage, and gain competence on the PaaS services offered by Microsoft Azure.

Platform as a service (PaaS) is a cloud-based applications development and deployment environment. These could be simple cloud-based applications or complex cloud-enabled applications. The PaaS backbone utilizes virtualization techniques, where the virtual machine is independent of the actual hardware that hosts it. PaaS supports the complete application lifecycle of building, testing, deploying, managing, and updating. Like IaaS, PaaS includes a complete infrastructure of servers, storages, and networking. In addition, however, it also includes middleware, development tools, business intelligence services (BI), database management systems, etc.

As per Microsoft, organizations typically use PaaS for:
Development framework. PaaS provides a framework that developers can build upon to develop or customize cloud-based applications. These applications can be - web apps, mobile apps, logic apps, functions or web jobs. Similar to the way an Excel macro is created, PaaS lets developers create applications using built-in software components. Cloud features such as scalability, high-availability, and multi-tenant capability are included, reducing the amount of coding that developers must do.
Analytics or business intelligence. Tools provided as a service with PaaS allow organizations to analyze and mine their data, finding insights and patterns and predicting outcomes to improve forecasting, product design decisions, investment returns, and other business decisions.
Additional services. PaaS providers may offer other services that enhance applications, such as workflow, directory, security, and scheduling.
By delivering infrastructure as a service, PaaS offers the same advantages as IaaS. But its additional features—middleware, development tools, and other business tools—bring the additional advantages of:
Cut coding time. PaaS development tools can cut the time it takes to code new apps with pre-coded application components built into the platform, such as workflow, directory services, security features, search and so on.
Add development capabilities. Platform as a Service component can give your development team new capabilities without your needing to add staff having the required skills.
Develop for multiple platforms—including mobile—more easily. Some service providers give you development options for multiple platforms, such as computers, mobile devices, and browsers making cross-platform apps quicker and easier to develop.
Use sophisticated tools affordably. A pay-as-you-go model makes it possible for individuals or organizations to use sophisticated development software and business intelligence and analytics tools that they could not afford to purchase outright.
Support geographically distributed development teams. Because the development environment is accessed over the Internet, development teams can work together on projects even when team members are in remote locations.
Efficiently manage the application lifecycle. PaaS provides all of the capabilities that you need to support the complete web application lifecycle: building, testing, deploying, managing and updating within the same integrated environment.
