Platform as a service (PaaS)

Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) is a category of cloud computing services that provide a computing platform and a solution stack as a service. In the PaaS model, the customer can create applications using tools provided by the platform on the cloud on a pay-as-you-go basis. The customer also controls software deployment and configuration settings, while the provider provides the networks, servers, storage and other services.

IBM SmartCloud Application Services supports pattern-based deployment and operations, while our BlueMix (in beta) drives development through the Cloud Foundry based service composition model.
