I wonder if someone can help me on this non-technical question: I am a bit new to database and up until today my projects were running on a network so I used MS database with the ODBC connectivity. My client got bigger and he wants to have access to the database from different places in the world. I don't want to install a new server with Oracle (cause I think it will get too expensive) and I wonder if there are some companies who actually 'rent' database 'space' (like monthly payment for their service).
