Nine Cloudy Challenges for Databases

    In the cloud, high availability isn’t just about hardware resiliency anymore. Being removed from the actual physical resources, you can’t just plug in an extra power supply or network card, or swap hard drives, etc. Maintaining high availability in the cloud depends on the availability of ‘more of the same’ resources and the ability to dynamically provision them on the fly once a failure is identified.

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.
