What is Database-as-a-Service (DBaaS)?

Wikipedia defines Database-as-a-service (DBaaS):

"With a database as a service model, application owners do not have to install and maintain the database themselves. Instead, the database service provider takes responsibility for installing and maintaining the database, and application owners are charged according to their usage of the service. For example, Amazon Web Services provides three database as a service offerings as part of its cloud portfolio: SimpleDB, a NoSQL key-value store; Amazon RDS, a relational database service that includes support for MySQL, Oracle, and more; and DynamoDB. Microsoft offers its SQL Database service[3] on its Azure cloud service platform. Cloud computing platform Rackspace offers database as a service for MySQL and MongoDB. Database as a service providers are not limited to cloud computing platforms. For example, MongoDB as a service provider mLab allows their customers to host their databases on AWS, Azure, or Google Cloud Platform. Database vendors have also launched their own services under this model. Oracle provides its own database as a service, allowing users to access Oracle Database 11g and 12c as cloud services."

VMware - Oracle Expert Event - US 2017

Last month, VMware ran its third iteration of the Oracle Experts Event in Palo Alto, CA.  This exclusive, invite-only event sponsored by VMware brings top Oracle experts in from around the world to learn about the latest and greatest around virtualization technologies.  I was lucky enough to be invited as a participant to the first event and have attended the rest as an alumni (while being put to work to help with the hands-on labs).

Oracle Licensing with VMware NSX

I'm sure some of you are asking how a network virtualization product can help with software licensing.  Well, if you've been following VLSS for awhile, you know that our mantra isn't "Trust, but verify."  It's "Just verify," and VMware NSX can help do just that.
