PaaS users: Have you adapted to the transition from database administrators to Database-as-a-Service? Do you still experience gaps with your PaaS provider's DBaaS offering?

I have been using Azure SQL Databases for several years now. Still have a lot of on-prep SQL servers and they are not going away in the next 3-5 years. Both on-prem and DBaaS have its use cases and it’s important to know what makes sense for which workloads. No significant gaps with DBaaS at the moment. Backup used to be a limiting factor where you needed to relay on the vendor native tools and not many 3rd party vendors offered it but that has changed and most of the vendor offer backing up Azure SQL databases nowdays

Not yet, but we plan to.

We are looking into DBaaS to fill in the gap we have in supporting our DBAs. We can't get DBAs who want to work in the office. I know it's a company culture issue, but remote is not an option.
