We all value different things. The choices we make, the experiences we have, they all shape our vision of the world in a personal and unique sense. Still, most of us could probably empathize with the late Steve Jobs when he said: “my favorite things in life don’t cost any money. It’s really clear that the most precious resource we all have is time.”
That’s what makes technology so great, it can simplify time-consuming processes and thus, add great value to our lives. With PaaS, adding value has been an incremental process. In the mid-2000s, providers could only offer server, storage, and network services. Ongoing advancements in application development fostered the need for more robust solutions.
Fast forward to today and we see ongoing growth in the demand for PaaS solutions. Here are four reasons why:
1. Application life cycle management
If the application is there, it needs to be tested. It will need to be put into production. And most likely, you’ll want to have several versions of a specific application in a production environment. PaaS helps manage and automate that part of the application life cycle. One web interface, where you can drag and drop any type of application from your acceptance environment to your production environment.
2. Pre-built tools
Developing an application from square one is a very time-consuming job. With Paas, developers can use pre-built tools which can help them to be more productive. Some examples include workflow automation, security features, search options, and directory services.
Programming on-premises can be a risky endeavor. Migration to PaaS allows developers to access the application from any location, ensuring that they can focus on their core tasks right from the get-go. Not only can PaaS reduce downtime, but it can also lower the chances of data loss.
We’ve all been there at some point in our lives, buying a product that we didn’t really use. Paying for unused services almost seems like an inescapable reality in our capitalist society. Luckily, with PaaS consumers can pick and choose an amount that best fits their needs. Pay as you go eliminates inefficient spending by use of scalability, allowing a billing system that is adjusted to customer needs.
