Should you move your database to the cloud? Over on Tech.Co, VividCortex's CEO and founder Baron Schwartz has published an article that covers some of the major benefits of such a shift. Cloud computing has changed tremendously over the past decade, and the potential for databases in the cloud is only growing. Baron's article explains what some of those changes might mean for you and your data.
Compared to a few years ago, cloud-hosted databases can be scaled quickly, cheaply, and efficiently. Scaling along any dimension generally requires adding or subtracting nodes from a cluster to change the storage capacity, I/O operations per second (IOPS), or total compute available to bring to bear upon queries... Although this was once one of the hardest problems in building scalable, distributed databases, the new breed of cloud-native databases can take care of these issues efficiently.
