Meeting enterprise requirements

Enterprises rely on SQL databases for their business-critical applications in the cloud. Although these databases can be consumed as a service (DBaaS), IT teams can get better control and flexibility over features and security by running a SQL database in the cloud on virtual machines or containers. This can considerably lower on-prem costs, however, there’s a catch: running a SQL database in the cloud means additional time-consuming data management tasks such as provisioning storage, snapshots, backup, and DR. This can add a high degree of complexity when it comes to strict enterprise requirements.
