What Is PaaS?

This white paper from Intel is about platform as a service (PaaS), a group of cloud-based services that provides developer teams with the ability to provision, develop, build, test, and stage cloud applications. It describes how PaaS:

• Creates demand for and broadens adoption of cloud services across your organization by making it easier for developers to make applications available for... the cloud
• Unleashes developer creativity so that the focus is on creating innovative, value-added services rather than the complexity of design and deployment
• Facilitates the use of cloud-aware design principles in applications that make it simpler to move to a hybrid cloud model
• Provides an ideal platform for developing mobile applications for multiple platforms and devices
