Application Infrastructure, Application Storage
Article | July 19, 2023
With infrastructure as code (IaC), you write declarative instructions about compute, storage and network requirements for the infra and execute it. How does this compare to platform as code (PaC) and what did these two concepts develop in response to? In its simplest form, the tech stack of any application has three layers — the infra layer containing bare metal instances, virtual machines, networking, firewall, security etc.; the platform layer with the OS, runtime environment, development tools etc.; and the application layer which, of course, contains your application code and data. A typical operations team works on the provisioning, monitoring and management of the infra and platform layers, in addition to enabling the deployment of code.

Nowadays, SaaS, IaaS, and PaaS are some of the most common names across the B2B and B2C sectors. This is because they have become the most efficient and go-to tool for starting a business.
Together, they are significantly changing business operations around the globe and have emerged as separate sectors, revamping concepts of various product development, building and delivery processes.
SaaS Vs PaaS Vs IaaS
Each cloud computing model offers specific features and functionalities. Therefore, your organization must understand the differences.
Whether you require cloud-based software to create customized applications, get complete control over your entire infrastructure without physically maintaining it, or simply for storage options, there is a cloud service for you.
No matter what you choose, migrating to the cloud is the future of your business and technology.
What is the Difference?
IaaS: Aka Infrastructure as a Service IaaS allows organizations to manage their business resources such as their servers, network, and data storage on the cloud.
PaaS: Aka Platform as a Service allows businesses and developers to build, host, and deploy consumer-facing apps.
SaaS: Aka Software as a Service offers businesses and consumers cloud-based tools and applications for everyday use.
You can easily access all three cloud computing tools on the internet browser or online apps.
A great example would be Google Docs; Instead of working on one MS Word document and sending it around to each other, Google Docs allows your team to work and simultaneously collaborate online.
The Market Value
A recent report says that by 2028, the global SaaS market will be worth $716.52 billion, and by 2030, the global PaaS market will be worth $319 billion. Moreover, the global IaaS market is expected to be worth $292.58 billion by 2028, giving market players many opportunities.
XaaS: Everything as a Service
Another term more frequently used in IT is XaaS, short for Everything as a Service. It has emerged as a critical enabler of the Autonomous Digital Enterprise.
XaaS is a term for highly customized, responsive, data-driven products and services that are entirely in the hands of the customer and based on the information they give through everyday IoT devices like cell phones and thermostats.
Businesses can utilize this data generated over the cloud to deepen their customer relationships, sustain the sale beyond the initial product purchase and innovate faster.
Cloud computing is not restricted by physical hardware or office space. On the contrary, it allows your remote teams to work more effectively and seamlessly than ever, boosting productivity. Therefore, it offers maximum flexibility and scalability.
IaaS, SaaS, PaaS; whichever solution you choose, options are always available to help you and your team move into cloud computing.
