What sort of cloud computing model focuses on software development if your company has a large team of developers that are responsible for building a critical set of internal business applications? You've been requested to locate a developer-focused cloud platform in order to reduce time to market for bug fixes and new features.
PaaS (Platform as a Service) is a cloud concept aimed at making software delivery easier. A PaaS will attempt to automate everything except software development, such as the deployment of application servers, server configuration, network setup, and maybe even the establishment of other services such as databases or file storage servers. The ultimate aim of a PaaS is for developers to be able to upload their code and have it operate without the need for professional IT operations teams to install, configure, monitor, and maintain the application.
