The Platform as a service(PaaS) service model allows you to rent storage space on the server and provides space to run programs, software, and operating systems as well in the cloud. This has enabled the developers to test new apps on rented virtual computers as and when required. As with any technology, there are advantages as well as a few limitations.

Advantages of PaaS:-

Automated Updates:

The software updates are automatically done and you get access to all the latest versions, updates etc. There is no risk of missing out on an update. This can save you plenty of resources and time. Security patches take care of any bugs and other security issues.

Low Investments:

You can use the software without having to make any investment in infrastructure that otherwise they procure in an in-house environment.

Reduced Costs:

Since the payment model is pay-as-you-use, there is considerable savings for you without having to install the necessary software like databases, server etc to run the applications.


Since it is an internet-based platform, it enables the employees to login and work on the applications from anywhere, make their updates without physically being present in the business premises.


Your IT team can focus better on core applications rather than being diverted on maintenance of the system.

Disadvantages of PaaS:

Risks of lock-in:

This is one possibility you must check thoroughly before signing up with a provider. If you get locked in a specific language, program, or interface that could affect you with some unnecessary system that you do not require.

Limited Scalability:

PaaS (Platform as a service) can be slightly inflexible when you need supplies on demand. Reducing or expanding based on business needs is limited in a PaaS environment.

Data Backup:

Though PaaS offers backup, you should perform one of your own as the environment can sometimes have the same deficiencies against any disaster.

These tools can be accessible over the internet to run old applications, or to develop new applications.
PaaS tools are preferred by the users owing to its effectiveness, easy to use features, and convenientness.
Most of the organizations tend to use PaaS as it is also cost effective, and based on the pay per use model.
Advantages of PaaS:
1) Cost Effective:
One of the reasons you should be considering PaaS is that it is cost effective. As, you don't have to spend on the hardware resources for setting up on-premise systems.
2) Scalability:
PaaS offers a highly scalable platform that allows businesses to grow without any interruption even in the peak times.
3)Increased Productivity:
Increase in productivity is another advantage associated with the PaaS. As you don't have to spend time on setting up your own environment, you give full attention and time on implementing strategies for developing your applications.
Disadvantages of PaaS:
Security Issues:
Your system security will depend on the provider you approach for getting PaaS service.
Compatibility Issues:
In most of the cases your existing system may face compatibility issues with Paas Products.
