# Introduction


EaaS is an environment-as-a-service product that allows you to create and manage even the most complicated environments quickly in 15 minutes or less. It is a tool that provides an extra abstraction layer above your applications and infrastructure in all your IT and DevOps frameworks, tools, and scripts.

This Quick Start Guide is a short version of the EaaS User Guide, which allows you to get familiar with EaaS in several minutes. Working on a very simply example, you will learn how to install EaaS and how to start using it.
