Databases for clouds

\r\n A cloud database is a collection of informational content, either structured or unstructured, that resides on a private, public or hybrid cloud computing infrastructure platform. From a structural and design perspective, a cloud database is no different than one that operates on a business's own on-premises servers. The critical difference lies in where the database resides. Where an on-premises database is connected to local users through a corporation's internal local area network (LAN), a cloud database resides on servers and storage furnished by a cloud or database as a service (DBaaS) provider and it is accessed solely through the internet. To a software application, for example, a SQL database residing on-premises or in the cloud should appear identical. The behavior of the database should be the same whether accessed through direct queries, such as SQL statements, or through API calls. However, it may be possible to discern small differences in response time. An on-premises database, accessed with a LAN, is likely to provide a slightly faster response than a cloud-based database, which requires a round trip on the internet for each interaction with the database.
