    What is 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.

    What is 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.

    What is Google Cloud SQL?

    Run the same relational databases you know with their rich extension collections, configuration flags and developer ecosystem, but without the hassle of self management.

      What are some alternatives to Amazon RDS, DigitalOcean Managed Databases, and Google Cloud SQL?
      Amazon Redshift
      It is optimized for data sets ranging from a few hundred gigabytes to a petabyte or more and costs less than $1,000 per terabyte per year, a tenth the cost of most traditional data warehousing solutions.
      Apache Aurora
      Apache Aurora is a service scheduler that runs on top of Mesos, enabling you to run long-running services that take advantage of Mesos' scalability, fault-tolerance, and resource isolation.
      MySQL
      The MySQL software delivers a very fast, multi-threaded, multi-user, and robust SQL (Structured Query Language) database server. MySQL Server is intended for mission-critical, heavy-load production systems as well as for embedding into mass-deployed software.
      Oracle
      Oracle Database is an RDBMS. An RDBMS that implements object-oriented features such as user-defined types, inheritance, and polymorphism is called an object-relational database management system (ORDBMS). Oracle Database has extended the relational model to an object-relational model, making it possible to store complex business models in a relational database.
      Heroku Postgres
      Heroku Postgres provides a SQL database-as-a-service that lets you focus on building your application instead of messing around with database management.
