You want to choose wisely. There are several criteria to consider when choosing a database provider.
1. Can scale up or down
Make sure that the provider can scale up or down to meet your business needs. This includes the ability to increase storage capacity, handle high traffic volumes, and support additional users as your business grows.
2. Performance and availability
Look for a provider that can deliver high levels of performance and availability, with minimal latency and downtime. It is not very pro to get frequent downtime of your application, so choose a provider that has a high performance and availability.
This includes ensuring that the provider can handle your specific workloads, such as read-intensive or write-intensive applications.
3. Can take care of your (and customer’s) data’s security
Choose a provider that offers strong security features, such as encryption at rest and in transit, role-based access controls, and regular security audits. You should also look for providers that comply with industry standards and regulations, such as PCI-DSS, HIPAA, or GDPR.
