A Simple Differentiation of IaaS, PaaS & SaaS

Leave a comment

CloudGetting a handle on how IaaS, PaaS and SaaS differ isn’t particularly difficult but I have to say I don’t think I’ve ever seen it illustrated, or explained, as well as this slide from the Windows Azure Jump Start tutorials on Channel 9.

Hopefully this helps clarify the difference between the three, particularly in light of the Windows Azure Infrastructure Services release in mid-April (2013).
Aren’t diagrams great?

I currently live and work in the UK, just outside of London. I've been working in IT for 15+ years and in that time have solved many technical problems via blogs, forums, tutorials etc. and feel like I should be giving something back. This blog post is my way of contributing and I hope it proves just as useful to others as their contributions have to me.
