Platform as a Service (PaaS) - Statistics & Facts

Together with infrastructure as a service (IaaS) and software as a service (SaaS), platform as a service (PaaS) is one of the three primary tiers of cloud computing, allowing businesses the opportunity to redirect resources away from IT hardware, software, and personnel expenses, and towards other business needs. PaaS offerings are usually used for mobile application and cross-platform application development, as well as DevOps tools.

What does the PaaS model include?

In the PaaS model, the customer essentially buys everything they need to build an application from a cloud provider. Next to the services included in the IaaS model - virtualization, servers, storage, and networking- runtime, middleware, and operating systems are also included in the PaaS model. PaaS customers can therefore focus solely on the development of applications and the management of data, while the service provider owns, operates, and maintains the infrastructure. In addition to decreasing the need for infrastructure management, PaaS solutions also eliminate or automate maintenance tasks and allow businesses to adopt new offerings and technologies as they need.

Global market forecast to grow

The overall cloud computing market is forecast to grow by double digits over the next few years, with the total global market for public cloud services expected to exceed 300 billion U.S. dollars in 2021. PaaS accounts for about 20 percent of the overall cloud services market, with the SaaS segment responsible for the majority of the market. In 2021 the public cloud PaaS market is forecast to surpass 55 billion U.S. dollars in revenue.
