IaaS or PaaS: what to choose? Besides the SaaS


The demand for public clouds is growing rapidly. Enterprise cloud systems are becoming more complex and diverse. The most popular is SaaS (“Software as a Service”), the second most popular is IaaS (“Infrastructure as a Service”), PaaS solutions (“Platform as a Service”) are less in demand, possibly because not all potential customers understand what PaaS serves, in which cases it is worth using the services of the appropriate provider.

Growth and complication

The cloud services market continues to grow rapidly. According to Gartner, in 2019 the segment of SaaS (Software as a Service) amounted to almost $ 100 billion, IaaS (Infrastructure as a Service) and PaaS (Platform as a Service) – $ 40.3 and $ 32.2 billion, respectively.

In 2019, according to IDC, on average, enterprises and organizations spent more than $ 3.5 million annually on supporting and developing cloud infrastructures. This amount will continue to grow, and the cloud part of the IT landscape of customers will become more complicated due to the introduction of hybrid solutions, the transfer of an increasing number of corporate services to the cloud.
