Customers may choose between a shared or dedicated database instance. Data is always private and only available to the IDs specified. Running the database in a shared environment is a cost savings. Dedicated databases are provisioned on a dedicated virtual server for customer use. A dedicated instance is required for specialized configurations, large databases, heavy transaction loads, or sensitive data storage.
