Examples: Amazon EC2 and S3, Google Compute Engine, Windows Azure.

PaaS (Platform as a Service). PaaS is the cloud solution where, apart from providing an infrastructure, cloud providers also issue an on-demand computing environment to develop, test, run and collaborate with components such as web servers, database management systems, and software development kits (SDKs) for various programming languages.

Examples: AWS Elastic Beanstalk, Heroku, Windows Azure, Force.com, Google App Engine.

SaaS (Software as a Service). SaaS providers offer fully functional web-based application softwares tailored to a variety of business needs such as project tracking, web conferencing, marketing automation or business analytics.
