Platform as a service refers to the building and deploying critical applications without the cost and complexity of buying and managing the underlying hardware and software, as well as the hosting of such services.
PaaS is a form of cloud commuting that supports the complete life cycle of building and delivering web application and services entirely available from the Internet.
Methodia’s PaaS offerings include all the facilities and infrastructure for application design, application development, testing, deployment and hosting as well as application services such as web service integration, database integration, security, scalability, storage, application versioning, and developer community facilitation.
These services are provisioned as an integrated solution over the web and users simply “tap in” and take what they need without worrying about the complexity behind the scenes. And like a utility, PaaS is based on a metering or subscription model so users only pay for what they use.
