There are three fundamental types of cloud implementation:
- Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS)
- Platform as a Service (PaaS)
- Software as a Service (SaaS)
Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS)
Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) is the most basic cloud deployment. Microsoft's IaaS solution hosts all your server capabilities for file and print, file storage, networking, and security. Microsoft can host Windows Server, System Center, Forefront Security, & Windows Intune to keep your network up and running and secure, while applications and client operating systems still reside on your own computers. All server and network technology would be hosted and managed in the cloud.
Take advantage of Windows Server's new applications and services on-premises and in public Cloud environments to deliver a whole new level of business value.

Platform as a Service (PaaS)
Here not only do you host your networking in the cloud but you also move over your development solutions as well. Microsoft's PaaS solution adds in support via Windows Azure (the cloud development component) to support SQL Server in the Cloud as well as any custom solutions. Data is hosted in a cloud SQL database and then uses that platform to write a custom app that works through a browser to access the data and determine the best prices and options. Windows Azure App Fabric is a tool that helps stitch all these parts together into a single cloud platform that developers can build off of.
Build, host and scale applications in Microsoft datacenters with no up-front expenses, no long term commitment, and only pay for the resources you use.

Software as a Service (SaaS)
The highest level of cloud implementation is Software as a Service (SaaS). Here all of your networking, your development platform, your operating systems, and individual applications are hosted in the cloud - you simply have to have a computer with a web browser and a fast internet connection. Through Microsoft's SaaS solution, all the services for networking, Office applications, SharePoint, Exchange, CRM, and Lync Communications come across the web to your computer. This allows for the least physical footprint of equipment in an organization.
