#6 Software Support
The two hot things that are ruling the cloud now are- SaaS (Software as a service) and PaaS (Platform as a service).
SaaS, sometimes referred to as "on-demand software" supplied by ISVs or "Application-Service-Providers" (ASPs), is a software delivery model in which software and associated data are centrally hosted on the cloud.
PaaS is a category of cloud computing service that provides a computing platform and a solution stack as a service. Along with software as a service (SaaS) and infrastructure as a service (IaaS), it is also a service model of cloud computing. In this model, the consumer creates the software using tools and/or libraries from the provider.
