Expanding PaaS opportunities lead to confusion

Sponsored by SearchCloudApplications

At first, platform as a service, or PaaS, was adopted primarily as a cloud development environment. Since then, PaaS uses have expanded to fit specific application and services needs and have been integrated with IaaS platforms. The variety of public, private and hybrid cloud PaaS offerings are just the tip of the iceberg. PaaS has been segmented into offerings specific to applications, tasks and industries, including integration PaaS (iPaaS).

This three-part guide provides an overview of and advice on PaaS uses and offerings. To start, Amy Reichert discusses the basics of PaaS, including security, iPaaS and the future of PaaS. Next, Valerie Silverthorne talks to industry experts about the relationship between PaaS and AWS. Silverthorne wraps things up with a look at four vendors that offer PaaS for the Internet of Things.
