Online map and database connection

We don't have a server.  I'm looking for the best way to create an online map that is dynamically connected to a database so it will provide constant updates on information without having to republish.  Is it possible to publish a query layer and maintain that database connection? Are there any other options?   Thanks!

Hi Erik Leigh,

When publishing Feature Layers to ArcGIS Online, data will always be hosted in ArcGIS Online storage. 

Have you looked into using Append to update the Hosted Feature Layer on a regular basis?

Hope this helps,
