The main types of cloud computing services are Platform as a Service, Infrastructure as a Service, and Software as a Service. You can select the right set of services depending on your needs.

  1. Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS)
    • IaaS is the most basic category of cloud computing services. It lets you rent IT infrastructure, including servers, virtual machines (VMs), networks, etc., on a payable basis. IaaS provides organizations with the most flexibility and management control over their IT resources.
  2. Platform as a Service (PaaS)
    • PaaS eliminates the need for you to manage IT infrastructures, such as hardware and operating systems. It helps you focus on deploying and managing different software applications.
  3. Software as a Service (SaaS)
    • SaaS is a method for delivering various software applications over the Internet. Billing and invoicing are done on demand or on a subscription basis. SaaS helps cloud providers easily host and manage numerous software applications and handle product maintenance, such as firmware upgrades and security patching.
