As you will see in this video, there are different types of cloud computing services. It is important to be able to recognize the different types.

Well, there are 3 types of cloud computing: Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS), Platform as a Service (PaaS), and Software as a Service (SaaS). The first type is Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS), which provides building blocks for cloud IT and networking, computers, and data storage space.

This type has the highest level of flexibility. Platform as a Service (Paas), removes the need for your organization to manage the underlying infrastructure. Software as a Service (Saas), is a product that is going to be run and managed by the service provider. With IaaS, companies control their own computing, networking, and storing components without having to manage them on-premises physically. PaaS, provides developers with a framework to build custom applications, while SaaS avails internet-enabled software to organizations via a third party. The disadvantage of IaaS is that because IaaS has a multi-tenant architecture, there are data security issues associated with it. If there are vendor outages in IaaS solutions, users might be unable to access their data for some time.
