IaaS provides a series of virtual IT infrastructure, such as computing resources, servers and storage space. Enterprise users can expand resources according to current needs, with high scalability and flexibility. The IaaS service model is mainly aimed at enterprises that require a large amount of computing and storage data. By paying according to actual usage, it saves a lot of initial investment and operating costs.

PaaS (Platform as a Service, platform as a service)

PaaS provides developersA complete platform for testing and deploying applications. This type of platform includes an operating system, database and development tools, allowing developers to focus on writing programs without worrying about the maintenance of the underlying software and hardware. PaaS is very convenient for rapid development and deployment of new applications, especially suitable for teams pursuing high innovation, growth or independent developmentBy.

SaaS (Software as a Service, software as a service)

SaaS provides enterprises and general individual users with software that can be directly connected to the Internet. This type of software service usually runs on different cloud servers, and users can pay directly through subscription. SaaS solutions range from office automation (such as Google Workspace) to enterprise resource planning (such as SAP). They are very convenient and fast and suitable for enterprises or individuals of all sizes.
