A. B. C. D. E.


In a Platform as a Service (PaaS) offering, the provider is responsible for providing the platform, which includes the hardware, operating system, middleware, and runtime environment. However, there are certain components that are the responsibility of the customers. These components are:

A. Infrastructure Connectivity: Customers are responsible for providing the necessary infrastructure connectivity to the platform. This includes the networking, firewalls, load balancers, and any other connectivity required to access the platform.

B. Data: Customers are responsible for the data that is stored and processed on the platform. This includes the management, backup, and security of the data.

C. Applications: The customers are responsible for the development, deployment, and maintenance of the applications that run on the platform.

D. Hardware: The hardware is the responsibility of the provider, and not the customers. The provider is responsible for ensuring that the hardware is available and functioning properly.

E. APIs: The APIs are part of the platform and are the responsibility of the provider. However, the customers are responsible for developing the applications that use the APIs.

Therefore, the correct answers to the question are A (infrastructure connectivity) and B (data).
