Abstract: Cloud computing is the practice of using a network of remote servers hosted on the internet to store, manage and process data rather than a local server or a personal computer. A database management system is a system software for creating and managing databases. In this paper, we are incorporating Database Management System in Cloud. A Cloud Database Management System is a service provided over the internet which provides means for sharing of software, resources and data between multiple nodes in a network. The motivation for this paper is the growing need for handling massive amounts data which can be easily achieved by integrating Cloud with DBMS. In this paper, we discuss the history of Database Management System and the recent shift of DBMS to Cloud. We have also deliberated on the merits and drawbacks of using Cloud Services to manage data. In the end, we propose architecture of DBMS in Cloud.
