The Internet of Things (IoT) architecture has gained an increased amount of attention from academia as well as the industry sector as a significant methodology for the development of innovative applications and systems. Currently, the merging of this architecture with that of Cloud computing has been largely motivated by the need for various applications and infrastructures in IoT. In addition to this, the Cloud ascends as an eminent solution that would help solve various challenges that are faced by the IoT standard when varied physical devices. There are an excessive number of Cloud service providers the web along with many other services. Thus, it becomes critical to choose the provider who can be efficient, consistent, and suitable, and who can deliver the best Quality of Service (QoS).

Cloud Computing Platforms

The computing services that are being delivered through internet is cloud computing. With these cloud provisions, software and hardware that are managed by third parties are allowed to be accessed by individuals and businesses (Lovesum, et al., 2014). Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS), Platform as a Service (PaaS) and Software as a Service (SaaS) are some of those services.

Software as a Service (SaaS)

A model for software distribution in which the retailers or service providers provide applications and these are made accessible to internet users through a browser is referred to as SaaS. Cloud providers manage the setup and platforms that run these applications. Instead of purchasing a license for every computer SaaS provides a cost-effective way for business organizations to use software when highly required (Helen et al, 2015).
