There are four types of cloud services:
- Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS)
- Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS)
- Software-as-a-Service (SaaS)
- Or, Storage, Database, Information, Application, Process, Integration, Management, Security, Testing-as-a-service.
We could also talk about another classification when it comes to the cloud: public cloud, private cloud or hybrid cloud. Each of these has its particularities and can satisfy different needs.
Knowing what your cloud computing needs are, will determine which type of service or services you choose for the company.
