Developers want to spend time focusing on new features rather than managing their databases. This reinforces the importance of database-as-a-service (DBaaS). This is why today we’re fortifying our technology partnership with Cloudant through a strategic investment.
When you’re working in your cloud app, the cloud enables you to easily spin up and down different servers and services with a click of a button. The drawback to this model, however, is that cost can be difficult to track. It’s easy to forget to shut down an instance, or a bug in app code could spin instances up without ever taking them down. Monitoring your costs is the third metric that developers should monitor, and Rackspace Cloud Tools partner Cloudability is a third-party tool that can be a big help.
We live in a world of multiple clouds: on- and off-premise, public and private, and from various providers. And managing those multiple clouds can be a headache.
Managing a database is hard. It’s a time-consuming process that requires experienced tech specialists to work around-the-clock in order to meet the complex demands of provisioning, monitoring security and delivering creative solutions.
