Azure Sphere is IaaS or SaaS or PaaS

Since Azure Sphere is a special kind of IoT solution that involves Azure certified hardware, does it belongs to IaaS or SaaS/PaaS model?

Craig Simpson

It’s neither, it’s software that runs directly on the device. It’s just "Software", which can connect back to either IoT Hub (PaaS) or IoT Central (SaaS).

Thanks Craig for the info.

Great question, Azure Sphere is all about Microsoft’s push to secure the edge. Azure Sphere works in conjunction with Azure services, but it not considered a cloud computing solution and therefore, not IaaS, PaaS or SaaS, but it would use cloud services that might be considered IaaS, PaaS or SaaS.
