Disaster Recovery for the SMB and Enterprise

There are three models of cloud services to compare: Software as a Service (SaaS), Platform as a Service (PaaS), and Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS). Each platform has its own benefits, variances and it is necessary to understand the differences among SaaS, PaaS, and IaaS. Do you know which one is the best for your organization?

SaaS – Software as a Service

The SaaS platform utilizes the internet to deliver applications to end-users, Salesforce.com is synonymous with SaaS services. A majority of SaaS applications are run directly through the web browser, and do not require any downloads or installations on the client side. SaaS provides many advantages to employees and companies by greatly reducing the time and money spent on tedious tasks such as installing, managing hardware, and upgrading software.

PaaS – Platform as a Service

PaaS provides the framework developers require to build upon and use to create customized applications. All servers, storage, and networking can be managed by a third-party provider while the developers can maintain management of the applications. The PaaS platform allows developers the ability to create customized apps without the headache of maintaining the software or hardware.

IaaS – Infrastructure as a Service

IaaS delivers Cloud Computing infrastructure to corporations, including such as servers, network, operating systems, and storage, through virtualization technology. As opposed to SaaS or PaaS, the IaaS clients are responsible for managing aspects such as applications, runtime, OSes, middleware, and data.
