Database-as-a-service offers multiple potential benefits, including lower database licensing and infrastructure costs, faster time to application development, and reduced administration overheads. These benefits are most likely to be experienced by database administrators and architects, although senior decision-makers and business users also stand to gain from having on-demand access to database services, rather than waiting for databases to be configured and deployed on dedicated physical or virtual server infrastructure.
While 451 Research anticipates growing adoption of database-as-a-service (DBaaS), adoption is currently nascent compared with other cloud services, as enterprises look to make the most of their investments in on-premises database deployments, and also to identify the most appropriate workloads for transition or migration to DBaaS. This webinar explores the factors shaping those adoption trends, including the potential benefits and challenges to DBaaS adoption, the economics of the cloud as they relate to database workloads, and adoption lifecycles.
Based on research involving enterprises currently deploying database workloads in the cloud, the webinar will:
• Highlight the trends driving enterprises to move database workloads to the cloud
• Identify the challenges causing enterprises to be hesitant about migrating database workloads to the cloud
• Identify the use-cases that are prime candidates for migrating database workloads to the cloud
• Highlight the critical success factors for database migration to the cloud
