Cloud computing solutions come in the form of Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS), Platform as a Service (PaaS) and Software as a Service (SaaS).
Types of Cloud Computing Services
There are three basic types of cloud computing:
1. Software as a Service (SaaS) is the most common and widely known type of cloud computing. SaaS applications provide the function of software that would normally have been installed and run on the user's desktop. With SaaS, however, the application is stored on the cloud computing service provider's servers and run through the user's web browser over the Internet.
2. Platform as a Service (PaaS) cloud computing provides a place for developers to develop and publish new web applications stored on the servers of the PaaS provider. Customers use the Internet to access the platform and create applications using the PaaS provider's API, web portal, or gateway software.
3. Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) seeks to obviate the need for customers to have their own data centers. IaaS providers sell customers access to web storage space, servers, and Internet connections. The IaaS provider owns and maintains the hardware and customers rent space according to their current needs.
