Next How to Choose the Right Cloud Database: Seven Considerations-3 Next

Make sure the cloud database you're considering enjoys strong, positive sentiment within the community, and see if similar or relevant companies have testimonials that the database works positively for them. Look around to see if you can find helpful forums where members swap experiences and best practices, and whether the strengths and benefits they identify align with your needs. This will heighten the probability of success in using a new cloud solution for your company.

A word to developers – if you haven’t yet been asked to port your applications to the cloud, you will be. It’s best to be prepared, because developers charged with choosing the right cloud database to best serve their data and applications are faced with a plethora of choices. There are some significant pitfalls if you make the wrong decision, because the options vary widely in capability, features and pricing. With so many cloud database solutions available, how do you know which one is right for you? Tom Kincaid, vice president of products and engineering at EnterpriseDB, suggests that you keep these seven considerations in mind when looking for the right cloud database.
