What is it?

Platform as a service (PaaS) is a complete development and deployment environment in the cloud, with resources that enable you to deliver everything from simple cloud-based apps to sophisticated, cloud-enabled enterprise applications.

Like Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS), PaaS includes infrastructure – servers, storage and networking – but also middleware, development tools, business intelligence (BI) services, database management systems and more. It is designed to support the complete web application life cycle: building, testing, deploying, managing, and updating.

Our solution

Our Platform as a Service (PaaS) solution provides the resources you need on a pay-as-you-go basis, allowing you to access them over a secure Internet connection.

Key benefits

PaaS allows you to avoid the expense and complexity of buying and managing software licences, the underlying application infrastructure and middleware or the development tools and other resources. You manage the applications and services that you develop, and the cloud service provider typically manages everything else.

As it’s open and flexible, Microsoft Azure supports a wide and varied selection of programming languages, operating systems, databases, tools, devices and frameworks. It allows you to run Linux and Docker containers; develop and build apps with JavaScript, Python, .NET, PHP, Java and Node.js; create back-ends for iOS, Android and Window devices.
