My previous article discussed Getting Started with Database as a Service, an emerging DBMS (database management system) paradigm that delivers on the efficiency of the cloud and provides a scalable framework for managing disparate databases.

With Database as a Service (DBaaS), routine tasks like provisioning, and administrative tasks like clustering, replication, backup and restore are handled in a simple, unified way.

One of the important principles of the OpenStack approach to DBaaS, called Trove, is that it treats all DBMS technologies in the same manner allowing developers to choose the best database for their application rather than being locked into a particular technology.
