Database Performance In The Cloud

This page contains an index to a blog series on the topic of designing, building and running databases in the cloud – and particularly the challenge of database performance.

The initial idea for the series came from reading a set of Gartner claims covering databases and the cloud. Namely, that:

  • “By 2022, 75% of all databases will be deployed or migrated to a cloud platform” <link>
  • “Cloud is now the default platform for managing data” <link>
  • “On-premises is the past, and only legacy compatibility or special requirements should keep you there” <link>

These assertions were made pre-COVID19, so the timings may now have changed, but they were enough to get me off my sun lounger and back to blogging…
