A Brief Note on Service Models

Infrastructure-as-a-Service is a type of cloud computing service that offers essential computing, storage, and networking resources on demand according to the customer's needs.

A simulation model of service is executed as a model as a service that focuses on the application of a model against data. There are mainly two usage patterns. The model can be pre-deployed. It should have a well-known endpoint of service and it must be supported by supplemental data services. The most important examples of Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) are DigitalOcean, Linode as well as Rackspace. Apart from that, Cisco Metacloud and Microsoft Azure are the most important types of Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS). Infrastructure-as-a-Service is generally a “cloud computing service” where many enterprises lease or rent servers for storage and computation in the cloud. Users can run away applications or operating systems on a rented service.

Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS): Overview

Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) is a significant type of service for cloud computing that refers to some essential computing, storage systems. Apart from that, the networking system of resources as per demand is the basic responsibility of this service. IaaS is the most important type of cloud service in the perspective of computing service that provides an important type of computing service to organizations. The important difference between IaC as well as IaaS is that it is not at all an infrastructure derivative in terms of Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS). The advantage of this particular technology is to improve the performance of the computer system by decreasing the CapEx. 

  • The concerned technology guides to increase the computer technology as well as its scalability. 
  • Besides this, this computer technology guides the development of system flexibility along with business continuity by recovering the system recovery process. 
  • This technology has a dynamic scaling that automates different types of administrative performances.  
  •  Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) provides the access to GUI and API-based activities to the users.                       

The concept of Platform-as-a-service (PaaS)

Platform-as-a-service (PaaS) is mentioned as the type of model of cloud computing in which the “service provider” distributes a platform to the users. The platform assists the organization to form, operate and manage the applications of business without the necessity to maintain and build the infrastructure such requirements of “software development processes”. PaaS (Platform-as-a-service) benefits the user, which involves more effective development of applications. 

  • The solution of Platform-as-a-service allows the users to concentrate on the application itself. The users can easily manage the data and application with PaaS.
  • The IT department or provider manages the operating system, networking, servers, storage, and virtualization with the assistance of PaaS (Platform-as-a-service)
  • The tools for development that are offered by any provider are personalized and customized based on the wants and necessities of customers.
  • Platform-as-a-service provider delivers the services of databases to the organization such as maintenance and setup. PaaS can help in delivering the platforms of communication and permits the developers to include more features to the application such as video, messaging, and voice.

Software-as-a-service (SaaS): Explanation 

Software-as-a-service (SaaS) is a significant type of technology that guides the users to build a connection between the users and the computer system that guides the improvement of different cloud-based applications on digital platforms. Apart from that, the concerned technology provides a complete solution for accessing different software that an individual purchases from the different providers of cloud service. Some significant activities of the concerned technology are to provide complete securing during the financial transaction in the banking institution that increases the privacy of each customer. The SaaS model assists the banks in protecting the customer’s privacy while giving services that are secure and reliable. Some important features of Software-as-a-service (SaaS) which benefits the bank includes

  • Easy customization 
  • Better Access
  • SaaS harness the “consumer web”
  • Multitenant architecture


Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS develop the performance of the different software system by decreasing the CapEx while Platform-as-a-service (PaaS) provides a complete supper to the users by personalizing and customizing the technology as per their requirements and the essentialities of customers. Both computer technologies guide the users by customizing the operating system, networking system, servers, and storage system as per the requirements of customers. Software-as-a-service (SaaS) network service is another technology that increases the safety as well as a security system, particularly in the banking sector. Apart from that, this concerning technology strengthens the privacy of customers during online transactions.
