Dedicated, DBaaS, On premise? The "perfect" answer

A new DB stack needs to be deployed and a decision needs to be made where to deploy it ...
Use dedicated servers, on-prem or via an IaaS provider, as that is how and where the application is running, or maybe because there is extensive config management available that will make the job quick and easy?
Or go DBaaS because that is the future and a lot of companies are taking that route? Or the thought of not having to worry about all of the Operating system quirks, including security issues, is really appealing to you?
In this talk, we're going to have a look at the benefits and restrictions of Roll-your-Own vs DBaaS, more specifically Amazon RDS/Aurora and Google CloudSQL
