AWS services Categorization

S3, Route 53, EBS, are these SAAS or PAAS? There seems to be different answers on internet. Some also say S3 is IaaS but i dont manager the OS for S3. Would be very helpful if some instructor can clear my doubts.

    These services are all PaaS (platform-as-a-service). You do not need to manage any underlying operating system. An AWS service such as EC2 would be IaaS (infrastructure-as-a-service), as you do need to maintain that yourself. SaaS typically refers to a web-based subscription service.

    Is there any AWS document which categorizes its services? Also can you give some examples of SaaS in AWS pls?
