When planning out a new or changed application backend environment, or migrating to another backend environment, there are lots of decisions that need to be made. One of the first is which database product or products best suit your needs. Next, you need to determine where you will run these applications: on-premises, infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS), platform-as-a-service (PaaS), database-as-a-service (DBaaS), serverless? There are many options.

This white paper provides some guidance for this decision.
