        What are some alternatives to Amazon Aurora, Azure Database for MySQL, and ClearDB?
        Amazon RDS
        Amazon RDS gives you access to the capabilities of a familiar MySQL, Oracle or Microsoft SQL Server database engine. This means that the code, applications, and tools you already use today with your existing databases can be used with Amazon RDS. Amazon RDS automatically patches the database software and backs up your database, storing the backups for a user-defined retention period and enabling point-in-time recovery. You benefit from the flexibility of being able to scale the compute resources or storage capacity associated with your Database Instance (DB Instance) via a single API call.
        Google Cloud SQL
        MySQL databases deployed in the cloud without a fuss. Google Cloud Platform provides you with powerful databases that run fast, don’t run out of space and give your application the redundant, reliable storage it needs.
        Azure SQL Database
        It is the intelligent, scalable, cloud database service that provides the broadest SQL Server engine compatibility and up to a 212% return on investment. It is a database service that can quickly and efficiently scale to meet demand, is automatically highly available, and supports a variety of third party software.
        DigitalOcean Managed Databases
        Build apps and store data in minutes with easy access to one or more databases and sleep better knowing your data is backed up and optimized.
        It is an immutable double-entry accounting database service. It supports many clients and businesses at global scale, leaning on Google Cloud Spanner and Google Kubernetes Engine to make that possible.
