Build, Deploy, and Manage Applications Without Worrying About the Underlying Infrastructure

Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) is a cloud computing model that provides a platform for developers to build, deploy, and manage applications without worrying about the underlying infrastructure. In a PaaS model, the cloud service provider typically manages the hardware, operating system, runtime environment, and networking components, while the developers focus on writing and deploying their applications.

PaaS offers a complete development and deployment environment, including tools, libraries, and frameworks, which makes it easier and faster for developers to create, test, and deploy applications. It eliminates the need for organisations to invest in and maintain their own infrastructure, as the cloud service provider takes care of the hardware and software stack.


The easy way for you to manage your Azure Cloud subscriptions, monitor cloud financials, continuously optimise your cloud resources and proactively secure your environment. Exclusive to MSPs who purchase Azure through Giacom.

  • Simplified Deployment and Management – Azure PaaS abstracts away the underlying infrastructure, making it easier to deploy and manage applications. It provides built-in capabilities for version control and automated updates. This simplifies application management and reduces operational overhead.
  • Cost-Effectiveness – Azure PaaS follows a pay-as-you-go pricing model, allowing you to pay only for the resources and services you use. It eliminates the need for upfront hardware investments and reduces maintenance costs. Additionally, Azure PaaS offers cost optimisation features like auto scaling and resource governance to optimise resource utilisation and minimise costs.
  • Security and Compliance – Azure PaaS incorporates robust security measures to protect your applications and data. It provides features like network isolation, identity management, encryption, and threat detection. Azure is also compliant with various industry standards and regulations, making it easier for businesses to meet their security and compliance requirements.
  • High Availability and Disaster Recovery – Azure PaaS offers built-in redundancy, failover, and disaster recovery features.
