Check out this article ‘Pizza as a Service’ (https://www.linkedin.com/pulse/20140730172610-9679881-pizza-as-a-service) which uses Pizza to describe the different delivery models for cloud computing. It presents a good case that should be understandable to anyone who has ever eaten a pizza and should provide a great guide to organizational decision makers when considering cloud solutions for their business.
The author uses pizza analogies to describe Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS), Platform as a Service (PaaS) and Software as a Service (Saas) in an effort to provide non-technical folks a way to think about cloud computing options
While the analogy may not be perfect, it tells a good story in terms that we can all understand and sheds some light on the topic of cloud computing that might not be obvious as one is spouting terms like IaaS, PaaS, and SaaS. Sometimes a picture is worth a thousand words (or a couple acronyms).
