No one really wants a PaaS, not really. What we really want are the proposed benefits of PaaS, namely: 

- Low Friction Development and Delivery to support the necessary Speed of Change 

Which means all, or some, of :

  • Quick to deploy applications
  • Utilise different environments that your application can be deployed to that 'feel' the same. eg, local development/ production.
  • Quick and Automated Provisioning of resources
  • Scalability.
  • Manage scaling of an application easily, via an API.
  • Reduce the need to consider infrastructure, using some higher abstraction.
  • A high level API
