Getting Familiar With SaaS, PaaS, IaaS, Cloud Computing And More

The world of technology has many confusing terms and acronyms, and the payment processing software is no different. Let’s talk about a few of the most common.

DevOps is a portmanteau of Development and Operations. This term indicates that these two departments work together to ensure the smooth development and implementation of software

Software as a service (Saas) delivers third-party applications through the internet to users. Google Apps is one of the largest examples of Saas. The UniPay gateway is another.

Platform as a service (PaaS) provides a framework that can be customized to your specific business needs. PaaS is generally easier and less expensive than building your own.

Infrastructure as a service (IaaS) provides a cloud-based infrastructure that frees you from the need to buy, store, and maintain a lot of hardware by allowing you to manage your resources via the cloud.
