XaaS- What a Cloud Does For You

In this episode, part 3 of our 4-part series, we dive deeper into the three core on demand services provided by “The Cloud” – Infrastructure-as-a-Service(IaaS,Compute, Storage and Networking), the well known Software-as-a-Service (SaaS), and the often confusing (development) Platfom-as-a-Service (PaaS). Robert Starmer, Kumulus Technologies’ CTO, explains what these X-as-a-Service models are and why you would want to use them.

Part 1 of the series provided a high level overview of the NIST Model here: Introduction to the NIST Model of Cloud Computing
Part 2 broke out the pieces that come together to make a Cloud: The NIST Model: The Essential Characteristics.
