Companies have several options on how to manage their databases, like hiring an internal DataBase Administrator (DBA), choose to operate entirely on cloud, or hire an external remote DataBase Administration (rDBA) specialist. However, in-house employees are expensive, especially while including benefits, overtime and taxes. Unique functions in the database cannot always be executed due to the basic nature of cloud services. Cloud is a good option, when the database does not require specific scripts. It offers high-security, seamless scalability and automation capabilities of certain tasks. But it is also expensive and prone to outages. Most companies turn to rDBA, as it is pragmatic and cost efficient.
