With SQL Database as your SaaS platform, you no longer have to make that compromise. SQL Database helps you manage and monitor multitenant apps and gain isolation benefits of one-customer-per-database.

Access From Anywhere

You can access your databases securely from anywhere via any compatible client or application.

Database hosting providers deliver services that enable you to run data and database-intensive applications. The underlying server can either be exclusively used for databases or other applications such as a website, all of which depend on your requirements. This type of hosting is particularly useful for clients with a need to run programs such as CRM (Customer Relation Management) and ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning) software or custom-built applications. Because they typically require more memory, customers often turn to database hosting solutions to increase the speed and reliability of their applications.

What is Database Hosting?

Database hosting is the art and science of providing a managed server that is optimised for running a relational database. Almost any host can run a web server, mail server, file share, or other file-based application. Databases are different in that they demand specific hardware and software configurations to correctly support the database.


A database host must optimise I/O for the specific database and storage platform. A database hosting provider will understand how to properly configure RAID levels, volumes, and file layout for optimal performance, growth, and internal resiliency.


A database host must run certified versions of certified operating systems to ensure your database support licenses are valid. A database hosting provider would not attempt to upgrade an operating system to an unsupported version that would invalidate the database vendor support agreement.

Databases also have particular backup requirements. Regular file system backups provided by many hosting companies will not correctly backup a running database. Each database vendor has a specific procedure that must be followed exactly to produce a recoverable backup. True database hosting providers will not only understand and follow these procedures, they will be able to help you design a specific backup plan for your database and host based on your recovery requirements.



The benefits of Database Hosting

A database server is an intriguing piece of software as it has the ability to store tons of information. Unlike the average web server application, this type of server stores information in tables, which consists of columns and rows. Through the use of a database, users can get the information they need in a matter of minutes.


Scalability

Need more space and power for your databases? With our database hosting you can add them on the fly. If you have images ready to go, you do not even need to do much configuring, if at all.


Pooling Resources

While a dedicated server for databases might sometimes make sense, it can often lead to CPU, RAM, and storage space sitting idly. With cloud based database, you can put your resources to work.


Downside of Database Hosting

Similar to the software application side of a dedicated server, a database server calls for heavy administration. For this reason, it may be a good idea to go with a managed service if you lack the experience this type of hosting requires. A managed service will get you a package where the hosting provider handles some or even all of the database server administration on your behalf.


Do you really need Database Hosting?

While there are tremendous benefits involved, database hosting is not made for everyone. For example, if you simply have a need to run a small online business with shopping carts and other e-commerce features, you can probably get by with a normal web hosting package that provides you with access to multiple databases opposed to the entire server. A managed service will get you a package where the hosting provider handles some or even all of the database server administration on your behalf.
