What is Database-as-a-Service?

Databases are the foundation of today’s business.  Why?  Data drives business and finance.  Organizations have been analyzing their data for several decades in an effort make intelligent decisions and increase ROI. Big Data helps to increase you business speed to market, better engage with customers, and analyze their  consumer markets.  This brings about challenges to your resource strapped technology team.

IT must be agile about infrastructure and business critical applications, especially databases.  How can technology teams rapidly respond to demands for “real-time” environments, while watching the bottom line? Its called Database-as-a-Service. An easy solution that will allow technology service to grow and contract as necessary.  Avoid poor resource utilization of existing hardware and uncontrolled infrastructure and spending growth, by utilizing this new resource.

With the expansion of “Big Data” and Analytics growth, a traditional, manual approach to database management is quickly becoming obsolete. There is a different approach that will allow for automation. This works in you favor to reduce  equipment costs yet provides you with the ability to respond to the business needs.

Cloud and Database as a Service (DBaaS) are two concepts that technology leaders are considering to modernize their data infrastructure. How can this new concept of Database as a Service help your business grow?

Three Ways DBaaS Can Help Your Business:

  1. Database as a Service will allow you to Virtualize Your Infrastructure.  You know that virtualization can increase your flexibility and scalability. This adds up to cost savings or ROI.  Your technology team can stand up environments and deployed faster. You will have access to better performance because you will be using newer technology.  Overall your IT costs will be driven down since you will only use what you need.
  2. DaaS Helps Your Company Automate.  Using any kind of  SaaS allows you to automate processes since these services go hand and hand with your DevOps teams.  By automating you will increase your infrastructure stability (including database).  This only helps with improve compliance.  By automating you are also reinforcing standards and time-to-market.
  3. Your Infrastructure Becomes Standardized.  When you set up individual databases IT teams always run the risk of dealing with different versions and configuration of databases.  This makes managing and administrating a database a nightmare.  By implementing SaaS, administrators standardize ensure that best practices are followed. This makes administering the databases easier and less time consuming.
