Platform as a Service
Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) is a cloud-based environment for developing, testing, running and managing applications. A PaaS solution enables development teams to provision the environment they require without needing to buy, build or manage the underlying infrastructure.
PaaS provide a variety of time-saving benefits that enable development teams to speed the pace of application development. Development teams can work on applications for multiple platforms simultaneously and use libraries of pre-coded components that eliminate a lot of manual coding. PaaS solutions also make it easier for distributed teams to collaborate.
Many enterprises today are adopting Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) solutions to accelerate development, deployment and optimization of next-generation applications. PaaS technologies can significantly reduce costs and streamline operations. But adopting PaaS solutions can add one more layer of complexity for IT teams already struggling to manage multiple public, private and edge cloud resources.
Aarisha delivers a suite of cloud infrastructure solutions that provide a consistent operating model and simplified management across all cloud infrastructures. With Aarisha, IT teams can mitigate the complexity of managing multiple clouds, making it easier to adopt PaaS solutions and to migrate and run workloads on the optimal cloud.
A PaaS offering provides a development environment on-demand, eliminating the need to buy, build or manage the underlying infrastructure. As a result, development teams can get up and running faster, release applications quicker and get to-market sooner. PaaS solutions are a step up from Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) in addition to the servers, storage, network and data infrastructure provided in an IaaS solution, PaaS also includes the middleware, development tools, data management and other resources required for application development
Despite the benefits for developers, PaaS solutions pose new difficulties for IT teams who are tasked with managing multiple cloud resources and migrating workloads between them. With a portfolio of cloud resources that require different management tools and different skillsets, administrators face a variety of challenges; from incompatible silos of infrastructure and inconsistent service level agreements (SLAs) to security concerns and considerable inefficiency. Under these conditions, migrating workloads between resources can take months, limiting productivity, innovation and competitiveness.
Consequently, many organizations are turning to a hybrid cloud model for managing their PaaS solutions and other cloud resources. In an ideal hybrid cloud infrastructure, IT teams have a consistent infrastructure and a consistent way to operate that significantly reduces the cost and complexity of managing PaaS solutions and other public, private and edge cloud resources. Dell Technologies has the hardware, software and services experience to deliver a complete solution with flexible consumption options.
Aarisha's Cloud simplifies deployment and management of the hybrid cloud infrastructure that can support PaaS technology. Providing consistent operations, infrastructure and services, Aarisha Cloud makes it simpler for IT teams to manage multiple cloud platforms and cloud-as-a-Service solutions, easily moving workloads between public, private and edge cloud resources as needed.Components of Aarisha Cloud include:
