Typically IaaS providers will have adopted PaaS technologies so that customer can also build applications and then host them in their IaaS cloud. That is to provide a more comprehensive offering. Also with PaaSs, it provides a way to build applications and using existing IaaS and SaaS layers to host their custom apps and changes. Overall, it is a natural dovetailing of markets for IaaS and SaaS vendors to roll out PaaS feature to become a one-stop shop for cloud services. in fact, the "leader" or prominent one can be slated as, below are some observations

AWS - IaaS (normally the infra that house all for all XaaS)
Microsoft - PaaS (Azure)
Google - PaaS (Google Application Engine (GAE) running under its IaaS i.e. Google Compute Engine (GCE)
SalesForce - SaaS and PaaS (since it acquired over Heroku )
VMWare - PaaS (Cloud Foundary)
Rackspace - PaaS (Solum in Openstack)

So if we go back to SF, it is natural for them to go for PaaS but in specific they will leverage their acquisition as default offering though the language support will still be likewise as any other PaaS. Eventually I just see that once you decided the IaaS, most (if not all) will give the first thought to reuse if PaaS is also available offering to streamline the services and any unforseen "backfire" if going to others..It is still possible to leverage of other but very dependent on IaaS support eventually...SF runs mainly Muelsoft as their Web Apps server as the PaaS targeted deployment platform
