Delivered from our highly secure and ultra-reliable UK-based data centre facilities, our PaaS solution allows you to develop, deploy and manage software applications rapidly in an environment built and optimised to your individual requirements. We manage all of the languages, libraries, services, tools and other application and database components, ensuring each is fine-tuned to meet the needs of the application being deployed.
Working closely with your development team, we create a service catalogue ready-made for you. With multiple pre-configured templates accommodating the specific versions of the libraries, applications, servers and services required, delivery of these resources is automated to ensure fast time to market – with the unequalled levels of PCI compliance, security and availability that come as standard with The Bunker.
Whether you’re building an application which you plan to offer over the internet or software to be sold out of the box, our Platform as a Service solution offers the perfect development and deployment environment. Web developers can use individual PaaS environments at every stage of the process to develop, test and ultimately host their websites; while businesses that are developing their own internal software can also use PaaS to create distinct testing and development environments.
Using our virtual infrastructure has both cost benefits and practical benefits. With The Bunker’s PaaS solution our clients have no need to purchase any hardware themselves or even employ the expertise to manage it. This leaves them free to spend more time on developing and managing their applications. As with our Hardware as a Service (HaaS) solution, another of the major benefits is that clients only need to rent the resources they need rather than spend money on equipment that may not be used very often.
PaaS clients can control the tools that are installed within their environments and are able to create a platform that suits their specific requirements. This allows developers to select only those features that are absolutely essential to the smooth running of their software and applications, and also enables them to add additional features as and when required.
PaaS enables teams of developers in different locations to work together. As an internet connection and browser are all that’s required, distributed teams of developers can simultaneously collaborate on projects, thereby saving time and increasing productivity.
With many cloud service providers (CSPs) claiming additional features that go beyond the traditional capabilities associated with Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS), it’s essential to recognise the technical and operational nuances that set managed and private PaaS apart.
