9 Largest Database-as-a-Service (DBaaS) Providers

Today’s IT requires ample storage. But the challenge with today’s storage needs is that they fluctuate. And even companies that have steady database needs require large amounts of storage where managing databases in-house can be time-consuming and expensive.

As a result, most companies look to database-as-a-service providers to fulfill these needs. Databases can serve many purposes but the great benefit of using a DBaaS is that your technology team won’t have to handle the ongoing upkeep and security updates for these databases.

Database rental has many great benefits for consideration when evaluating your needs. For example, some companies use a hybrid model of on-premises databases mixed with managed cloud databases. 

We’ll explain what database-as-a-service is when you should use it, the many benefits you can enjoy from this service, and the top DBaaS providers. 

What is Database-as-a-Service?

The simplest example of what database-as-a-service is that many people understand is Google Drive. Google Drive allocates a set amount of storage to each user. Within the storage, you can create folders and structures to meet your needs.

Likewise, many databases offer structure and processing as part of their storage services. DBaaS encompasses many different services that you likely use every day and think nothing about.

In a sense, website hosting is a database-as-a-service offering a specifically structured database service that renders your website to visitors when they type the URL. 

But there are far larger databases available to meet the needs of businesses and developers. These databases can come in many different types including:

  • NoSQL
  • MySQL
  • PostgreSQL

Different types of databases are more scalable than others. NoSQL is the most modern DBaaS offering options that will grow with your company and applications quickly.

When you purchase a DBaaS subscription, you’ll get all the necessary tools to manage a cloud-based database. These tools include licenses, provisioning, maintenance, and ongoing support.

Cloud-hosted APIs make it possible for developers to create applications in the cloud and write and read data from those cloud-based databases.

The benefits that a database-as-a-service offers are immense and impactful for most organizations. Here’s a look at these great benefits.

  1. Excellent service quality: to get access to a cloud-based database, you’ll agree to a service level agreement that outlines the performance and support that comes with your subscription. As such, these database companies must meet these high standards and uphold security guidelines. The availability of the database must match what is outlined in the service agreement.
  2. Fast deployments: your in-house resources will no longer have to worry about administrative tasks. Instead, they can focus on innovating for your company and deploying those innovations to aid in business growth instead of focusing on keeping systems running.
  3. Flexibility: as your need for resources changes, it’s easy to upgrade or decrease your database usage. Most DBaaS companies charge based on usage, which means you won’t have to worry about changing licensing agreements or subscription levels from month to month as your needs change.
  4. Quick provisioning: most database-as-a-service providers offer self-service capabilities so that you can get started quickly with just a few clicks. That way, you don’t have to worry about governance or administrative responsibilities.
  5. Improved agility: business requirements can change from one hour to the next. With on-premises solutions, you might need a deployment to address new requirements. But DBaaS allows you to be much more agile to meet changing needs and requirements.
  6. Outstanding security: DBaaS providers handle the security side of things, which means you won’t have to worry about keeping the database updated to protect your valuable data. These providers offer multi-layered security to protect data at rest.
