What is PaaS (platform-as-a-service)? A simpler way to build software applications

PaaS (platform-as-a-service) is a form of cloud computing that enables software developers to build, run, and manage software applications easily, without worrying about underlying infrastructure. The advent of cloud computing opened the door for vendors to bundle together the key building blocks required to create an application, with the aim of simplifying or even automating many of the trickier and more repetitive tasks required to deploy code.

PaaS accomplishes all that, but with few exceptions, it has become a service available on IaaS (infrastructure as a service) clouds rather than a separate cloud offering and often includes Kubernetes container orchestration. Serverless computing, a type of cloud platform that makes development of certain types of applications even easier, is considered an evolution of PaaS.
