Vendor Cloud Services: SaaS, IaaS, and PaaS | ND

When it comes to deciding what resources you need on the premises of your company, Infrastructure as a service (IaaS), Platform as a service (PaaS) and Software as a service (SaaS) provide varying levels of in-house management. 

SaaS allows a company to easily implement a software solution across multiple devices without the need to individually install and configure applications. An example of SaaS is something like Google Apps. PaaS allows the development and deployment of personalized applications using the computing power and infrastructure provided by a third party. 

Windows Azure is a PaaS solution that is well known. IaaS generally provides the role of a traditional data center but without the obligation of having to manage the hardware since that responsibility is taken up by a third party. IaaS is highly flexible but places the most responsibility on the client.
