Amazon Aurora Database Service

By AWS Leave a comment

At this time, information management has become crucial when using and delivering websites/apps; this is why interests on counting with a quick-response, high-performance and high-capability database has increased among IT service providers.

We like to be aware of these tendencies, same reason why we have developed special and exceptional qualified capabilities, to offer our customers the best database services which allow them to enhance their information approach and involve them into a modern and cost-effective business model. For managing your database we highly recommend Amazon Aurora.

Amazon Aurora is a MySQL-compatible and fully managed relational database engine that combines the speed, availability, and security of high-end commercial databases with the simplicity and cost-effectiveness of open-source databases.

Some benefits of Amazon Aurora are...

  • It’s a fully managed database service where its tasks -like hardware provisioning, software patching, setup, configuration, monitoring, and backup- are completely automated.
  • It provides high durability and fault tolerance of data across multiple data centers.
  • High scalability with no performance or availability impact.
  • It counts with automatic, incremental and continuous backups with no impact on database performance.
  • It is highly secure and allows you to encrypt databases using keys that you create and control through AWS Key Management Service (AWS KMS).

Some considerations before opting to move into Aurora:

1. You need to evaluate your app’s/database’s features to determine whether or not it fits with Aurora.

2. It’s necessary to test the database performance for time and the sensitive workloads by running your queries directly on Aurora.

3. It’s considered a good practice to determine the Recovery Time Objective (RTO) and Recovery Point Objective (RPO) for your application/database.

4. It is important to estimate the amount of code and schema changes that you need to perform while migrating your database to Amazon Aurora.

5. You should consider the impact of the migration process on your application and business processes before starting with migrations.
