What is IaaS? And PaaS?

Infrastructure as-a-Service and Platform as-a-Service are very similar. With IaaS, we basically rent you the hardware, along with physical maintenance and virtualisation, but you decide how to manage and implement any software, operating systems, middleware, apps and data. With PaaS, we take even more of the hassle off your hands – you can simply ‘PaaS’ everything onto us. All you have to manage are your data and your apps, while we take care of the rest.
