Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS)

Platform-as-a-Service

Give developers more agility and flexibility than ever

PaaS lets developers easily develop, deploy, and run applications. Architects and IT operations can decide where and how to run the underlying infrastructure. The result: a more efficient use of resources and more opportunity to innovate.
