Amazon Web Services Expands Access to Amazon Aurora
Amazon Web Services (AWS) is making Amazon Aurora (its MySQL-compatible database engine) available to all customers. Currently, Amazon Relational Database Service (Amazon RDS) users in various regions—including northern Virginia, Oregon, and Ireland—have access, with additional regions getting the engine in the coming months. They can convert their existing MySQL databases to Amazon Aurora with one click in the AWS Management Console.
Amazon Aurora provides better performance than the typical MySQL database at a tenth of the cost, and it can run both enterprise-scale and internet-scale applications.
For more information, read the press release.
