What is PaaS (Platform as a Service)?

Platform-as-a-Service gives you a platform on which to develop, run, and manage your own apps without having to build and maintain the infrastructure or environment it needs to run. This is because PaaS provides hardware and an application-software platform to users from an outside service provider. This means you will control the actual apps and data that live on the platform, making PaaS an ideal solution for developers and programmers. For instance, a developer might use PaaS as the foundation to create a new application that integrates with an existing Oracle database your company is already using.

How Data Sciences Corporation is fulfilling the need for PaaS

Data Sciences Corporation has built a strong brand within its existing customer base, by leveraging next generation infrastructure technology, underpinned by world-class services.

“As we continue to innovate and better understand our customers challenges, it has become apparent that business is demanding more agile solutions, which leverage cloud benefits for both on-prem and off-prem consumption. The key concept underpinning this is that business wants to purchase, consume and retire technologies “as-a-service” rather than continuing with the traditional model of ownership.” – Adrian Wood (Business Operations Director at Data Sciences)

Data Sciences Corporation have developed a service which they believe will greatly assist their customers in transforming technology requirements to meet business needs. Data Sciences launched their first “Multi-Cloud Platform as a Service” called OXIDE PaaS.
