Most people have heard the term SaaS and know what it means. Fewer people have heard IaaS and know what that means. At the 2014 Cloud Expo in Santa Clara, California, far fewer people had heard PaaS (Platform-as-a-Service) and know what it means. It was surprising that there are still so many people, especially those who understand cloud, that still don’t know the great wonders of PaaS. But we see this as an opportunity for ActiveState to educate others on the enormous value of PaaS. Watch, and hopefully by the end, you'll have a better understanding of PaaS too.
