I'm still seeing a lot of folk using MySQL and now MySLQi.

Why would I pay for DBaaS today?

DBaaS Market

DBaaS functionality is similar to MySQL which provides additional functions with low cost in the cloud. But DBaaS is expected to perform well in this year by providing real-time transaction processing in low cost.

Sounds like a sales pitch.

Not sold here. MySQL is in the cloud too so not getting why I'd bother. Besides many hosts give us the SQL for free/low cost to some size or transactions a day.

If you are trying to sell this, you need a better presentation.
