Real-time querying on a cloud deployment

Once an information initiative needs real-time querying/integration on the datalayer of a Paas-cloud solution, what kind of resolution will be provided by mendix?

The whole idea behind PaaS (and the cloud portal) is to abstract stuff like databases away from users as much as possible. We offer a Platform as a Service, ie the Mendix Business Server, as a service. If you want access to the database connection you're not looking for a PaaS, you're looking for an IaaS, such as the Mendix custom cloud.
