Abstract

 PaaS is a category of cloud computing focused on abstracting the application platform, including data communication, and execution from the underlying operating system and hardware.  This presentation will provide a brief over view of cloud computing while explaining the emergence of PaaS.  The economics around PaaS and cloud computing as a whole will be discussed highlighting many commonly held, yet false assumptions.  Finally we will cover possible future states including the role of Software Defined Networking (SDN) in PaaS operation.
