Forrester-Research-Inc.-logoForrester Research has recently published a report on Database-as-a-service (DBaaS), a new and emerging publiccloud database service.

Business leaders demand next-generation applications and new insights to drive more intelligent engagement and better decisions. To get there, enterprise architects need to design an agile technical architecture that can scale automatically with capabilities, such as databases, that are always available to support new initiatives.  It takes enormous time, effort, and coordination to provision new databases today because of a lack of resources to meet the administration challenges of rolling out complex clustered systems.

Database-as-a-service (DBaaS), a new and emerging publiccloud database service, delivers an elastic, secure, scalable, highly available, and self-service database platform that helps enterprise architecture (EA) professionals and developers respond more quickly to new business needs and competitive threats as well as deliver innovative new products and services.

This report explains the key characteristics to look for in a DBaaS solution and profiles the dominant vendors in the market today.
