Online databases are hosted on websites, made available as software as a service products accessible via a web browser.
They may be free or require payment, such as by a monthly subscription.
Some have enhanced features such as collaborative editing and email notification.
A cloud database is a database that is run on and accessed via the Internet, rather than locally.
So, rather than keep a customer information database at one location, a business may choose to have it hosted on the Internet so that all its departments or divisions can access and update it.
Most database services offer web-based consoles, which the end user can use to provision and configure database instances.
