Nine Cloudy Challenges for Databases

  • Nine Cloudy Challenges for Databases-
    For cloud providers, PaaS, SaaS and other large customers that need to run thousands of databases simultaneously, multi-tenancy enables a cost-effective and operationally efficient framework. Yet, achieving real multi-tenancy isn't the same as simply installing multiple database copies on the same virtual machine. You want to ensure consistent performance, minimal "noise" between applications/users, and be able to support high availability for each instance, as well as scale with it as it grows. And you want to minimize the management overhead of keeping it all running.

The cloud has turned traditional data management on its head and there’s no doubt we've seen a renaissance of the database – particularly good-old SQL databases - because of it. When it comes to the cloud, people think they will be able to command endless resources while still being able to deploy, run and consume a distributed data solution anywhere, anytime. In this slideshow, Razi Sharir, CEO of Xeround, dives into the challenges that come along once your database is in the cloud.
