MySQL is a prevailing open-source relational database in the world. It provides multi-user and multi-thread SQL database servers and can run on major operating system platforms.
RDS supports high availability within an availability zone (AZ) or crossing AZs. You can promote a cross-region read replica to the primary DB instance.
RDS uses VPCs, subnets, security groups, SSL connections, and audit logs to ensure data security.
Backup & Restoration
Automated backups can be stored for up to 35 days and can be used for point-in-time restores (PITR) of your database. You can also create manual snapshots for disaster recovery.
Easy to Scale
You can create a maximum of 5 read replicas to offload read traffic from the primary DB instance. You can also change the CPU/memory or scale up storage space with just a few clicks.
RDS supports data migration, bringing services to the cloud easily.
RDS works with MySQL 5.6-optimization and MySQL 5.7 to provide high performance for database users, resolving the replication latency problem.
