Pizza as a Service

Leave a comment

Software as a Service is like going out for dinner, there’s no shopping, no prepping or cooking and no cleaning.
Do you understand the differences between on-premise, infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS), platform-as-a-service (PaaS) and software-as-as-service (SaaS)? Could you clearly explain it to someone who didn’t know the difference? Someone who can is IBM Software Client Architect Albert Barron in a LinkedIn post, using the analogy of pizza and the below graphic to explain the differences between various levels of cloud offerings.19656ee

What do you think of this analogy? Do you see the benefit of dining out?

By ‘dining out for pizza’ you are free to concentrate on managing your projects in a secure environment accessed through the web. Solutions in the cloud are accessible from anywhere, highly secure and always up-to-date. Best of all, the solution is managed for the organisation so they can avoid the hassles of hardware, software updates, data back-ups and security monitoring.
