3. Which cloud service model is most widely used?

The three main cloud computing service models are Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS), Platform as a Service (PaaS), and Software as a Service (Software as a Service).

Of the three, SaaS is the most commonly used cloud service model across the board. SaaS operates using a pay-per-use model in which different businesses and organizations are granted access to the software over the Internet.
