Platform as a service is the cloud service model that is desirable by many. Nevertheless, in the beginning it was the IT based companies that wanted to make the most of it. In the initial phase of cloud computing, it was completely used by the developers only, and not meant for the business organizations.

Nevertheless, scaling up as per the requirements of the end-user wasn't being the part of the platform at that point of time due to which overall operating cost of the software shooted up when it was operated by using the existing traditional infrastructure. Big conglomerate and multi-national companies simply utilized the platform for extension and trying-out and then moved on.


-Secondly, in the beginning this platform was public and rendered services to multiple customers at the same time. This further brought about security related issues and above this, businesses wanted to have the flexibility to switch between both public and private platforms as and when required.
