The Role of Platform-as-a-Service Message: Overview: Platform-as-a-Service is an increasingly popular paradigm moving from just being a buzzword to the mainstream. A number of Startups, ISVs and Enterprises are now going directly to the cloud, bypassing traditional web hosting solutions, avoiding the need to own a server in-house, and shifting from the traditional model of software development to the new model offered by PaaS. This whitepaper talks about the shift from the traditional software development model to the new model offered by Platform-as-a-Service. It proceeds to discuss the various types of PaaS, key characteristics, advantages, monetization models to the service levels offered by PaaS providers.
