With a compound annual growth rate over 18%, the global market for Platform as a Service (PaaS) is projected to reach $7.5 billion by 2020. It’s a growing, lucrative market that benefits service providers, VARs, and telecoms as they continue their digital transformation.

Defining PaaS

PaaS is a category of cloud computing that provides a comprehensive computing environment, including the hardware, operating system, database, and other necessary software for the execution of applications. It may include a complete development environment as well.

PaaS allows a customer to rent virtualized servers and associated services used to run their existing applications, or to design, develop, test, deploy, and host new applications, paying only for what they consume.
