I was just reading through Embarcadero Technologies’ Database Trends Survey Report for December 2010. One of the most interesting tidbits is on page 24.
When asked which upcoming technology will have the greatest impact on the database industry, more than one-third of survey respondents (34%) selected databases in the cloud. Virtualization ranked second with 27%, then solid state disks with 15%, visual tuning with 12% and collaboration earned 8% of the vote to round out the top five.
(Note: Databases in the cloud = Database as a Service = DbaaS).
Looks like I’ll have a lot to blog about this year. What do you think?
