The Database as a Service (DaaS) model is growing its presence across the virtual globe. Enterprises are asking whether DaaS is mature enough to meet their low-cost and high-security data management requirements using a cloud paradigm. Companies are deploying virtualized applications and, as a consequence, they are asking for Relational Cloud as well. Dynamic scalability, privacy, performance and heterogeneous environments or interfaces to business intelligence products ask for a class of solutions to satisfy the cloud paradigm as a whole. Data modeling supports DaaS in that it provides a clear mapping of the deployed data structures, storage and data topology as well as the core business concepts.
