Enabling Database Excellence: Moving the Database to Managed Services
Enterprise IT is undergoing massive transformation led by technologies that enable the virtualization, dynamic deployment, and elastic scalability of resources. Coupled with professional management services in the cloud, these technologies offer more control and cost-effective management of IT systems than has ever been seen before. This is particularly important in the database sphere. Without cloud managed database services, databases are managed manually through fixed compute and storage resources acquired for fixed periods and maintained by the datacenter staff.
