DBA Trends Survey – Part 3 of 3 – Cloud

Everybody loves to fill out surveys. Right?  Ugh I just never found the time to fill em out. But then again I had to send em back using snail mail. You remember snail mail? Right?

But some interesting stats from this research project By Dr. Elliot King

Reference: DBAs FACE NEW CHALLENGES: TREND IN DATABASE ADMINISTRATION

How long has your organization managed relational databases in the cloud?
More than 1 year but less than 2 years — 46%
More than 2 years but less than 4 years — 24%
Less than 1 year — 23%

What was the primary reason you chose to manage at least some structured relational data in the cloud?
Increase flexibility -34%
Reduce licensing costs -30%
Support a new use case -21%

Approximately how much relational data does your organization manage in the cloud?
Less than 1TB -27%
1 – 99TB -37%
100TB – 499TB -28%

Of all the structured data under management in your organization, approximately what percentage is managed in the cloud?
0 to 10% 128%
>10%=25% -35%
>25%=50% -31%

How fast is the volume of data under management in your cloudbased relational database management systems growing annually?
0 to 10% -19%
>10%=25% -30%
>25%=50% -34%

What do you consider to be the most important responsibilities for DBAs in managing databases in the cloud? (Multiple responses allowed.)
Performance -66%
Capacity Planning -42%
Security -42%

I was a bit surprised that 23% of users responding to the survey had used relational databases in the cloud < 1 year. I thought many, many, more companies were slow to putting SQL Server data in the cloud.
