Adobe recently announced the availability of AEM as a Cloud Service, a new service offering for Adobe Experience Manager customers to run AEM natively as a Platform as a Service (PaaS) in Adobe's cloud. To be clear, this is different than their existing Adobe Managed Services or Cloud Manager offerings which run AEM as a standalone app running on Virtual Machines in the cloud. In essence, AEM as a Cloud Service involves Adobe automatically provisioning and managing AEM instances running in Docker containers backed by a shared node / file store. For users of the end system, most things will stay the same including the AEM UI (for the most part), Cloud Manager for provisioning and the integration with the Adobe Experience Cloud tools.
