The concept of cloud services and the types of offerings that fall under the term are huge. Everything that is provided over the Internet can be called a "cloud service". With virtualization and increasing the capacity and speed of the Internet, almost any software or hardware function can now be provided over the Internet.
There are three main services resulting from this increase in data access and exchange. Infrastructure as a service (IaaS), software as a service (SaaS) and platform as a service (PaaS). You can easily get the best cloud services in Florida & Fort Lauderdale at ECW.
Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS)
An infrastructure as a service provider offers an alternative to purchasing and installing the equipment and software needed to support business operations. The network and servers needed to provide storage, network, and server functionality are provided by the IaaS provider.

Software as a service (SaaS)
Software as a Service is cloud computing where software is used through online access. Software developers create their programs (for CRM or email or database processing or almost any other software program).
Customers usually have access through their internet browser and pay a monthly fee (usually) based on usage or the number of programs the consumer uses.
Platform as a Service (PaaS)
Platform as a Service (PaaS) sits between IaaS and SaaS. Server infrastructure, utilities, virtual networks and users with application access are provided and hosted by the PaaS provider. They have access to their customers either through a single login or via a small application loaded on a PC connected to the PaaS software.
