We have a website that's currently being hosted on Amazon S3 and it's working fine. But we have run into a problem with our data (and it's static). So the next step we're looking at is to create a SQL database in the cloud so we can store user data. Could we possibly do this through Amazon AWS or Azure? Thank you for your help.

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

The best way to create a cloud-based SQL database is to start with a hosting service that allows you to create and maintain your own website and database services. Consider options such as Parse or MongoDB. These services allow a high level of flexibility as well as cloud-based storage. Because many of these start-up tech companiess often cease operations after a short period of time, be sure to find a cloud services provider that is stable. Once you build your SQL database, you’ll also want to protect the data within it by enacting security measures such as password protection and identity management.
