Platform as Service
Platform as a Service (PaaS) provides a runtime environment. It allows programmers to easily create, test, run, and deploy web applications. … In PaaS, back-end scalability is managed by the cloud service provider, so end- users do not need to worry about managing the infrastructure.
• Integrating Platform-as-a-Service solutions
Many enterprises today are adopting Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) solutions to accelerate development, deployment and optimization of next-generation applications. PaaS technologies can significantly reduce costs and streamline operations. But adopting PaaS solutions can add one more layer of complexity for IT teams already struggling to manage multiple public, private and edge cloud resources.
Cloud delivers a suite of cloud infrastructure solutions that provide a consistent operating model and simplified management across all cloud infrastructure. Our IT teams can mitigate the complexity of managing multiple clouds, making it easier to adopt PaaS solutions and to migrate and run workloads on the optimal cloud.
A PaaS offering provides a development environment on-demand, eliminating the need to buy, build or manage the underlying infrastructure. As a result, development teams can get up and running faster, release applications quicker and get to-market sooner. PaaS solutions are a step up from Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) — in addition to the servers, storage, network and data infrastructure provided in an IaaS solution, PaaS also includes the middleware, development tools, data management and other resources required for application development.
Despite the benefits for developers, PaaS solutions pose new difficulties for IT teams who are tasked with managing multiple cloud resources and migrating workloads between them. With a portfolio of cloud resources that require different management tools and different skillsets, administrators face a variety of challenges; from incompatible silos of infrastructure and inconsistent service level agreements (SLAs) to security concerns and considerable inefficiency. Under these conditions, migrating workloads between resources can take months, limiting productivity, innovation and competitiveness.
Consequently, many organizations are turning to a hybrid cloud model for managing their PaaS solutions and other cloud resources. In an ideal hybrid cloud infrastructure, IT teams have a consistent infrastructure and a consistent way to operate that significantly reduces the cost and complexity of managing PaaS solutions and other public, private and edge cloud resources. SteiGen Synergy has the hardware, software and services experience to deliver a complete solution with flexible consumption options.
Moving to a managed platform allows your technical team to concentrate on building apps and services that add value to your business. A good PaaS provider can offer you improvements in:
No business wants to prioritise managing servers and patching operating systems over delivering their core products and services. With a cloud-based platform, that’s not even a possibility. Using an integrated platform also offers an opportunity to improve business processes like workflow, reporting and social feeds. Your business can save time, money and effort thanks to:
Easy integration with legacy systems ‐ you can use apps that incorporate data from your existing systems like SAP, Oracle and Microsoft. It can help you unlock and modernise back-office systems with point-and-click simplicity.
Real-time information ‐ you can create apps that deliver real-time data and updates to employees and managers, allowing them to make better business decisions. You can create apps to help with workflow and approval processes too.
Easier IT maintenance ‐ the vendor looks after the platform, so you just have to look after the apps themselves – reducing your IT overheads.
Shared insights ‐ with thousands of businesses using the platform, large-scale PaaS providers
