I’ve been thinking about switching my company database to a cloud for a log time now.
I think the flexibility a cloud has to offer can’t really compete with any servers in the short term. Also, there is no way to react to unforeseen circumstances. Say we get a huge spike in users. With physical servers we would have to manually order new ones and have them shipped to us.
With a cloud we could just buy new space. The only thing I worry about is implementing the database in the cloud. I’ve heard of this new program called Aiven that is supposed to help you with that. Do you think that might be worth its money?
