Database-as-a-Service: A Buyer’s Introduction and Guide

Database-as-a-Service: A Buyer’s Introduction and Guide

Database-as-a-Service (DBaaS) is a cloud-based approach to the management and storage of data. By placing the database software and associated management functions in the cloud, DBaaS enables databases to scale elastically on-demand. It also removes the management of the database software—such as updates, patches, or security measures—from the enterprise, and places it with the provider, freeing the enterprise customer to focus its IT staff on higher-value endeavors. DBaaS services on the market today generally manage one or both of the two prevalent types of databases, SQL and Non-SQL. This report provides users with a comprehensive comparison of the capabilities and features of 13 DBaaS providers.
