Database as a Service

We'll probably see in the coming months more and more acronyms ending with "aaS" which stands for "as a Service".

This article from InfoQ mentions Longjump's Database as a Service offer (DaaS, not our DAS). They just host and administrate a MySQL database for you, and they offer REST or SOAP APIs to manipulate it. As the article states, the future of such offers is not clear.

What will be the next XaaS?
