This eliminates the need for developers to purchase and maintain the underlying hardware, software and hosting facilities for their SaaS applications. Facebook is the most well known PaaS application.
IaaS – Infrastructure as a Service
This is sometimes referred to as “hardware as a service”, IaaS is an outsourcing model by which users rent equipment accessed via the Internet to support their operations.
