For many cloud services Azure PaaS is the right choice for many cloud users. Platform as a service (PaaS) is a main key Azure Component, which is useful for buyers and profitable for sellers. Microsoft Azure and Windows Server applications are finally symbiotic as well. The major goal of Microsoft Azure and Windows Server is to make Azure cloud hosted by Windows Server alternative or supplement which means Azure delivers PaaS feature to applications.
A user with Windows Server applications, Azure reinstates both the hardware and platform software. Hence, Azure relocates software licensing charges as well as maintenance costs.
PaaS is Azure’s best feature and clearest differentiator. Additionally, to limit cloud costs, PaaS facilitates hybrid cloud operation. To make this, PaaS facilitates a complete cloud software and hardware platform for applications compatible with Microsoft’s on-premises tools. Azure recommends cloud-friendly implementations on well- accepted server APIs for service such as SharePoint. As Microsoft controls the data centre version of the same APIs, it can create flexibility and hybridization into the cloud and data center.
Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) allows IT department to concentrate efforts on their custom applications, not the platform they run on. With the Windows Azure, organization’s IT team can develop custom solutions and manage design, development and deployment, exclusive of the need to purchase and manage the server hardware, software, storage, security or networks which is used to deliver the solution.
