Part 2 of 3: Cloud Computing: Creating a Firm and Solid Platform
One of the aspects at the very heart of cloud computing is to minimize operational costs and increase businesses’ productivity. Since every business has the common interest of low operational costs and amplified productivity, it is no wonder cloud computing has exploded over the atmosphere of the business world. One of the parts of cloud computing, platform as a service or PaaS, provides businesses with: easy collaboration, access anywhere at any time, centralized information management andno up-front investments.
This blog on PaaS is part of a 3-part series that CyberTrails is publishing regarding cloud computing. The series has so far explored software as a service application in our blog entitled, Reap Rewards with SaaS and today we will take a look at platform as a service application. The PaaS provider gives the consumer the tools and libraries of files that they need to create software and provides the services of a computing platform and a solution stack. In this relationship, the consumer does control the configuration settings and the software deployment, the provider supplies the servers, the storage and the networks.
When a consumer is utilizing a platform as a service application, the user is making use of a hosted structure which allows control of the applications but does not control the hardware or network infrastructure. Companies in all areas of business have the need to develop and swiftly write and test customer or employee-facing web applications, PaaS has significant potential to help developers in this area, where there is continuing mounting pressure to deliver. When a company chooses to work with a PaaS model it allows them to have a platform that is centered around one approach or one developed language which helps with productivity and fluidity and is very efficient when it come to coding.
The above paragraphs touch on the increased business productivity that PaaS can bring to a company, and as we also mentioned above, minimizing cost is also a part of cloud computing. When PaaS is applied it removes the cost and any complications of managing and providing the software hardware and hosting capabilities while still providing companies with the opportunity to develop applications. A company that is interested in all the power without too much complexity or expense should contact CyberTrails immediately so we can show you how to take your business into the clouds.
