PaaS Platform & the Cloud Advantage

The pivotal advantage of a PaaS platform is the Cloud based service. This guarantees leaner build-start duration. And the pre-established stock business and operational rules will cut some time off development.

“The time advantage will stay beneficial if business rules and functionality requirements remain within the ambit of pre-established norms.”

The PaaS Ecosystem

The PaaS ecosystem is still young and thus you will have to factor in the drawbacks of being locked in with a sizeable fan-out at present.
Each cloud framework has specific interface methods, offerings, and associated expenses. There is a certain degree of risk associated with depending on PaaS services as the quality of service could worsen.

Standards are just being developed for the PaaS industry.

Extensive migration processes are very often than not a tricky issue with PaaS.

PaaS: Possible Areas of Concern

  • Data security a restricted access to the underpinning software
  • Limited flexibility a readymade services are modified to suit User requirements
  • Vendor Lock In a Lesser options among vendors if a need to change arises
  • Problems of integration with in-house systems and applications

The integration of existing data contained within in-house legacy systems and PaaS-based applications is often challenging.

  • PaaS does not represent a complete solution: There is a high level dependent on a third party and the service provider’s adherence to a service level agreement. The issue of data security is a grave one.
  • Application Requirements: In order for PaaS technology to deploy and scale different applications in the same fashion, all applications must conform to a set of rules and best practices
  • Runtime Limitations: Users will have restricted access to OS. Thus, they will be constrained to perform development in certain platforms.
  • Troublesome Change Management Process: Add-ons are built for the most commonly requested use-cases and they often prove limiting. Building your own add-ons will be a difficult proposition too. SGS solution comes ably supported by a highly effective and proven Change Management Strategy.
  • Operational Limitations: While the NoOps (No Operations) methodology that PaaS providers leverage may be feasible for simple applications, PaaS can limit critical operational capabilities: (NoOps stands for NoOperations wherein the underlying IT operations are completely automated and covered)
  1. You may be unable to debug live production deployments.
  2. Your security, networking and storage options may be severely limited.
  3. You may have no control over hosting decisions, including an inability to deploy to specific geographic locations.
  4. Possible breach of the agreements on the level of service is related to the degree of confidence we have about the software vendor or platform as a service.
  5. We put in the hands of a vendor performance and application service we are aware of its advantages, but its disadvantage is whether comply with the agreed service level, and obviously is something that should have it in-house would take into account or not .
  6. You may be prevented from customizing build and deploy automation.
