📊 There are significant differences in performance and price performance-wise among different database service offers, making benchmarking crucial for decision-making.

📊 The database choice depends on the specific application needs, such as high write volume and low complex read queries for IoT applications.

⚡️ The performance boost of 50% on a different database system led to the possibility of reducing the number of hardware, providing valuable insights and recommendations to the customer.
