Database as a Service (DbaaS) Software Overview

What is Database as a Service Software?

Database as a Service (DBaaS) software, sometimes referred to as cloud database software, is the delivery of database services as a service in much the same way that Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) or Platform as a Service (PaaS) provide IT technology platforms and development platforms as managed services in the cloud. Indeed, databases are often included in Iaas and PaaS offerings.

Database as a Service offerings are made available to customers on demand and are paid for on an as-used basis, usually a monthly or annual fee. The provider is responsible for managing the service and the end user has no requirement to maintain, upgrade or administer the database.

Many DbaaS offerings are relational database management system (RDBMS) requiring the use of SQL, but some are based on alternative technologies like noSQL databases.

The advantages of the cloud service model - primarily not having to install or maintain the software in the data center - are well understood. But there are also some disadvantages such as lack of control over network performance issues, or inability to compress data or other database maintenance tasks.
