In the 10+ years that RampRate has advised buyers of IT infrastructure services, few technology options have been as polarizing as “the cloud.” In some organizations, a public cloud deployment is viewed as an immature technology if not a passing fad, with any cloud outage eliciting a chorus of “I told you so.” In others, it is a panacea that appears at the end of every strategic roadmap for every application.
The true position is at neither extreme. Public cloud computing is a tool for a job, which fits some buyers and projects today, and will fit more of them as both cloud technologies and application development practices continue to mature. It is the heir to many technologies that were initially viewed with an equal measure of skepticism and enthusiasm in the past – from co-location to content delivery networks to virtualization technologies rebranded by some vendors as “private clouds”.
The key question is not whether it is a great technology or a flawed one – it’s both, particularly flawed when misapplied – but what cloud service is the right fit for your specific jobs, whether today or in a few years, and what you should do to prepare.
Internet has revolutionized the way business is operated harnessing limitless opportunities to perform routine to critical organizational functions. Cloud Computing is a remarkable shift in IT industry, which enables virtually anyone for reliable, scalable and on demand robust IT as a Service solutions stacks. Platform as a Service is a cloud service offering which enables the development, deployment, integration and maintenance of key business applications without even buying the underlying backend architecture, on a convenient pay as you go model, where all these applications are hosted on the provider’s infrastructure and are entirely accessible via internet.
What is Platform as a Service?
Platform as a Service provides the entire infrastructure essential to either design or deploy general, social, business and enterprise level software applications, without managing or controlling the host cloud infrastructure including networks, servers, operating systems, storage and all the programming tools & applications, hence providing the Platform to build, test and deploy applications with the same development architecture & infrastructure as an organization would require in-house for building and hosting enterprise level applications.
