A good MySQL hosting solution

What are the best hosting MySQL solutions in the cloud? I am looking for companies that provide free trials and good hosting terms. Something that is easy to use and it publicly accessible.

**** deploys and host applications in the cloud from our marketplace of applications, but we do not host databases. We need to partner or have a site that we can tell our customers where they can gain access to a database that is easy to use and setup.

**** Note: Company name removed since it's not needed for the discussion. Plus it may reflect poorly on that company.

Clarification Request
Define good.

I ran into folk that found great MySQL hosts but flamed out as they had to learn SQL and management thereof.

-> That is, they expected more than a great MySQL host. They wanted training in the products. Which costs a lot more than they expected. Not that they couldn't use free tutorials but refused to put in the work.

So back to you. There are so many good hosts and you are in the business so I edited out your company name. Why didn't you do this research today?

I guess that I am looking more for a partner that I can refer customers to that will provide the services you mentioned. I am looking for something that is easy to setup and connect to. I am also looking to people who have used these services to get their opinions.

I am not looking to maintain a database for my customers. There are companies out there that do that. My company deploys applications in the cloud and points to the our customers databases. The customer is in control of their data and the maintaining of their data. We are not in that business.

The next problem is cross domain pages which

You know will get some antivirus suites flagging. So if you have your cloud app tap a MySQL on another domain that could cause issues.

So in this case it may be best to just move to the host that has it all. I did add a second reply with a nod to our CNET Cheapskate post about web hosts. He called out a specific vendor and offered more links to compare others.

Ok I am missing something....

I have currently been deploying SuiteCRM, osTicket, WordPress, etc. and I just set a connection string to a MySQL database connection string. I have done this with databases that are from many different domains that are not the same domain at the application. Where will I get this Antivirus warning from?

Actually I was intentionally imprecise.

Many browsers and now AV suites that beef up security will balk if the page has cross domain sources.

But if your backend handles the SQL then this is transparent to the end user machine.

You're an expert so I was imprecise on purpose. Let's hope the CNET Cheapskate and his links pay off for you.
