Cloud Services come in many different forms.
Understanding the key differences is the first step in choosing
the right cloud service to integrate into your environment.
The industry commonly refers to the cloud as being comprised of three layers –
applications (Software-as-a-Service), development capabilities
(Platform-as-a-Service) and IT infrastructure (Infrastructure-as-a-Service).
Which approach is right for your business?
What service should you consider to achieve your business goals or overcome your most pressing challenges?
IaaS services offer the fundamental components of networks, computing and storage facilities that enable software applications and systems to run, store and deliver information through applications to users.
By delivering compute (virtualized servers), storage and network resources as a service, both IT and business users can access IT capacity faster, manage resources on-demand and achieve greater financial efficiency and business agility.
SaaS services such as e-mail, collaboration or enterprise applications are designed to provide users and organization applications in a subscription manner, typically on a per-user or per-organization basis for a period of time.
Platform as a Service (PaaS)
PaaS services are generally consumed by application developers who design and integrate applications that are used and accessed, using a variety of devices, by end-users. These services are generally subscribed to on a time or volume basis.
TELUS offers software development frameworks that allow programmers to take advantage of TELUS mobile network and public storage capabilities.
