And what user-facing API would you use to let the user do that apt-get
install after automatically provisioning a server sized right for that DB?
And to add users?
"_something_ as a service" is an understood term these days. Just like
"Desktop" is known not to mean an actual meatspace surface where you
put things, but a particular software concept.
For "as a Service", that concept is an API which simplifies provisioning
and configuration automation.
