Cloud Computing: Database as a Service

In cloud computing we all know about Infrastructure as a Service, Software as a Service; similarly Database as a Service is emerging and is slowly becoming popular among cloud providers. This article is brief overview of database as a service. Databases are widely used as the foundation of many enterprise applications. In most organizations, however, each project that uses a database acquires its own hardware and software and establishes its own hosting and support arrangements for the application. Consequently, there are often a large proliferation of servers and software within a given enterprise that perform the same task - provide database services for applications. Modern databases have advanced in features and functionality to the point where they can be used to provide a larger, shared service to the enterprise as a whole. This shared service allows multiple... (more)

How to Choose the Right Cloud Database

Big Data Expo Early Bird Savings here! Database as a Service (DBaaS) is cloud database hosted and managed by the cloud service providers that can be accessed through public cloud or the hybrid cloud. The cloud provider takes care of provisioning, configuring, setup, maintenance, backups and patching the database. Customers are expected to export the database and start consuming the service through the pay-as-you-go model. There is a debate on whether Database as a Service (DBaaS) should be considered part of IaaS or PaaS. Though databases are part of almost all PaaS offerings, they are quickly becoming the key building blocks of IaaS. While customers can always launch VMs and set up a database of their choice, the DB service is different because it's set up, configured, managed, and monitored by the infrastructure service provider. Popular databases, including MySQL... (more)

DBaaS: The Next Killer App for Cloud Services

By Chip Childers Editor's note: This post by Chip Childers of CumuLogic captures context we believe of special relevance to all enterprise IT professionals, especially those with data to collect/store/process/analyze. He ends with a topic more of us from the technology world should be weighing in on. - bg As public and private cloud adoption continues to skyrocket, it's becoming more and more clear that Database-as-a-Service (DBaaS) is hugely important to users. This isn't really news, as much as it's a confirmation of what many were seeing much earlier in the cloud industry's maturation. DBaaS is the next killer app for cloud services. As an example, consider that DynamoDB from AWS was, after only five months in production, the fastest growing AWS service all the way back in 2012.
