Database-as-a-service (DBaaS) has become critical for all businesses to build and support modern business applications and operational systems. It is changing the way companies build and support business applications and operational systems. With DBaaS, organizations can provision a relational or non-relational database of any size in minutes, without needing any technical expertise.
For app developers, it offers a database platform to build simple to sophisticated applications quickly, allowing them to focus on application logic rather than deal with database administration challenges. DBaaS automates the provisioning, administration, backup, recovery, availability, security, and scalability of the database without the need for a database administrator (DBA).
In addition, DBaaS helps enterprises migrate from their on-premises databases to the cloud to save money, support elastic scale, and deliver higher performance for expanding workloads.
Analyst firm Forrester Research in its recent report on the Database-as-a-Service market has named Google Cloud a leader in this space as it supports a broader set of use cases, automation, high-end scalability and performance, and security.
