PaaS

PaaS refers to the provision of a computing platform and the provision and deployment of the associated set of software applications (called a solution stack) to an enterprise by a cloud provider. PaaS makes deployment of applications possible across your entire network while negating the need for you to buy or maintain hardware or software, basically because it is all owned and maintained by the cloud provider. The provider can customise, integrate or develop from scratch, applications needed by the enterprise, which the client can then access via the internet.
