  5. 5. SaaS - Software as a Service • Software as a Service • Hardware/Operating System/Application are abstracted • More simplicity / Less control
  6. 6. PaaS - Platform as a Service • App development in the Cloud • Hardware/Operating System are abstracted • Quick development, low cost entry • Uses common languages (.Net, RoR, Java) • Rich API service integration
  7. 7. IaaS - Infrastructure as a Service • Private/Hybrid/On & Off Prem. • 100% Virtualized • Self-service portals • Bring and/or Maintain your own OS/App
