As IT commandos, we love new challenges. One of them was to create a Platform as a Service solution based on the Amazon Web Services data cloud. PAAS is a model of a cloud service. It enables the recipient to install services based on the application's cloud infrastructure.

It is a platform that the supplier is to provide to customers as an independent environment. This environment allows you to develop, test, run and manage applications. It's possible without the need to build and maintain your own infrastructure. and purchase licenses for the appropriate software, necessary in the software development process.
