Platform as a Service (PaaS)

Platform as a Service (PaaS) is the availability of a computer platform for customers and resellers in the cloud. PaaS services offer a hot runtime environment for web based services with only low administrative expenses and without acquisition of the required hard- and software.

The advantage of Platform as a Service is that the customer or reseller can focus on their core business. Backup, monitoring, maintenance as well as standby duty are in the responsibility of the cloud provider.
