Comments: The cloud has removed the need for a physical server and physical person to be present over there full time.

Pros: The best thing about it is that it is NoSQL based. Everything is migrating to cloud these days and migrating our DB to cloud, makes sense too. The ease of access and scalability are very impressive features of this tool.
You can get started in no time and, it's beginner friendly as well.

Cons: You have to have a good idea about how much your project is going to expand and based on that only you should go with this model because it's not a cheap model if you are going to grow on a vast scale.

Database based on the cloud allowing better management.
