Hey there,

does someone of you know some decent DBaaS to host temporary databases for testing purpose?

Or what is your way of developing new applications (non-business related services)? Do you run your database locally? Do you have your own servers running?

Thanks for a quick answer. It might help me with my current project.

Yours rr

If you’re going to test, do it locally. I like Postgres, that’s what this uses as well.

I wouldn’t be worried about space. The entire english wikipedia text DB is ~ 50 GB.

A testing database is usually like 10 MB or so, just FYI.

Running a database is really simple, especially if its just for development. I usually use docker-compose, so its just a matter of writing the compose file, installing docker-compose and running docker-compose up -d. Here is an example.
