PaaS [English]

Syndetic Relationships


  • Hunter 2014 (†602 p.16): Provider owns, leases, or licenses the facility, hardware and software, and allows customer access to software computing foundational platforms upon which customer can build its own scalable software applications. The PaaS is similar to other computing platforms, such as Windows or Linux, that allow developers to build within those platforms, but now instead of being locally installed the entire platform is on the cloud. The Google App Engine is an example of PaaS. (†1385)
