This section provides an overview of the tightly integrated building blocks that consist of the holistic DBaaS platform setup in the lab. Each layer of the architecture is straightforward for infrastructure engineers and DBAs to deploy, scale, manage, and maintain. Software developers can use the system to rapidly create cloud-native applications that include self-service provisioning of SQL databases in a frictionless managed container ecosystem. The following figure highlights the elements of the architecture that we focus on throughout the rest of the white paper.
The following sections describe each numbered part in the solution architecture.
