Database

A cloud database does have capabilities at the LaaS level as well as the PaaS level. The choice you have and how you interact with them is going to be different depending on the services model.

It belongs to both. How you interact with a cloud database will be different depending on whether you are using an infrastructure (IaaS) or development platform (PaaS) environment.

In an IaaS operator, you (may) have total control over the cloud service you are building, down to the level of exactly what database you are enabling for your cloud. Do you want MongoDB or Redis, Cassandra or MariaDB, mySQL or CouchBase… it will be entirely up to you which database or databases you use to run the infrastructure itself and which are available to users of your IaaS. You can explore OpenStack’s Trove project as an example of an IaaS-focused database service.

As an IaaS user you may well be more limited. If you are using your company’s IaaS service or a Public Cloud you fall in the category. You will have a subset of databases available- those that your IaaS operator has enabled and possibly something as limited as SQL or noSQL option. While DBaaS is a popular feature, it is possible you have no option at all and would be responsible for setting up your own database system.

Finally for PaaS - this is really the development platform cloud, the database selection will depend on which databases are enabled on the platform. This OpenShift example, while from 2013, is a simple walk through of how this work - note that there are four options for databases.

So back to your initial question, yes - a cloud database has functionality at the IaaS level and PaaS level. The options you have and how you interact with them are going to be different depending on the service model.

database is considered as paas or saas on example of salesforce

While this is not a compelling reason to make the switch from Salesforce Classic to Lightning, the company says that it helps a lot when companies deal with their individual Salesforce CRM deployment based on their precise sales needs. Also, the ability to fine tune the solution by adding, removing widgets, apps, tools, and layouts is seen as a prime reason why companies would want to take the effort to execute the transition.
Actually, now I am working with Salesforse database (https://www.ergonized.com/salesforce-classic-lightning-migration/)
