- Lift-and-shift migration
- Development and testing
- Storage, backup and recovery
- Web Applications
- High Performance Computing
Platform as a Service (PaaS)
It’s a complete development and deployment environment in the cloud, with resources that enable delivery from simple applications to complex enterprise applications. PaaS includes infrastructure such as IaaS, adding development tools, business intelligence, middleware and database administration. Some common PaaS scenarios are:
- Framework for development
- Business Analytics
- Flows, directories, security, etc.
Software as a Service (Saas)
It allows users to use cloud-based applications when connecting via the Internet, allowing them to deploy and run applications with minimal time and cost. Some of the common SaaS scenarios are:
