Cloud service providers offer a wide range of cloud-based services, from basic infrastructure such as compute and storage to complex machine learning development and execution environments. They provide services in two major categories: Infrastructure as a Service and Platform as a Service. Platforms also provide additional services, including platform administration and management, application development tools, security services, edge computing resources, and applications that can be integrated via APIs to new applications developed by customers.
