What is Platform as a Service?
Platform as a Service facilitates the deployment of email and application servers without the complexities and costs associated with purchasing and managing the underlying hardware and software required to run the application. PaaS offerings usually include facilities for application design, development, testing, deployment and live hosting together with application services. These services are usually provisioned in the Cloud and provided as an integrated solution through the Internet.
PaaS has revolutionised the way IT infrastructure is managed by the business and has enabled enterprise solutions to be accessed by the SME. In 2008, Commensus realised the need to invest in a secure, resilient and scalable cloud computing platform. Our vision was simple, “Given an unlimited budget, what is the most comprehensive IT platform that we can build?” The result was a £1 million investment in the Commensus Virtual Infrastructure Platform. Our platform delivers email and application hosting as well as full Infrastructure Hosting to organisations around the world. We offer three types of Cloud computing:
1. Private Cloud – a private dedicated virtual server environment for the SME.
2. Public Cloud Hosting – a shared server environment for the small business.
3. Hybrid Cloud Hosting – for the IT manager looking for full control of your private cloud and physical on-premises servers.
