Platform as a Service (PaaS)

Platform as a service (PaaS) is a cloud computing model for developing and hosting software applications that can be easily deployed, operated and scaled. It is a delivery model for cloud computing that provides the tools to deploy web applications, mobile apps and other types of software without needing to buy, set up and manage the underlying hardware and infrastructure.

PaaS allows developers to work on their software without having to worry about provisioning servers or configuring networks. This makes it easier for developers to focus on building applications instead of worrying about infrastructure. PaaS also provides a number of services that make it easier for developers to create applications, including databases, storage systems and networking capabilities.

The three most common PaaS providers are Amazon Web Services (AWS), Google Cloud Platform (GCP) and Microsoft Azure.
