Next How to Choose the Right Cloud Database: Seven Considerations-4 Next

Cloud database pricing runs the gamut: from free versions to pay-per-use to a monthly subscription. Make sure you are taking into account not only what would be the least expensive solution for your company but also what would be the most efficient. Big-name companies do not necessarily have the solution to all your problems. It’s like buying anything – just because a cloud database is expensive does not necessarily mean it’s the best for what you need. Another option to consider here to save costs on-premise and in the cloud is open source.

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.
