Best RDS Solution

Reviewed 2 years ago

If you are looking for a best solution in cloud or hybrid environment, go for it.

Pros

Amazon Aurora is a wonderful Relational Database Solution in the AWS Cloud, it can provide you with up to 15 read replicas, it is amazingly server-less. You don't need to worry of capacity and performance.

Cons

It is a bit expensive as to the other available solutions, but considering its features it is a good choice.

Aurora - if you're on RDS, you should definitely give it a look

Reviewed 4 months ago

We had been on RDS for a number of years, happily running mySQL, when Aurora came out. The timing felt good: Oracle was just about buy mySQL (I think - not 100% sure on timing), so we were already feeling a bit edgy about what future support for mySQL was going to cost. It was hyped as a cheaper, faster alternative to mySQL -- and once we dipped our toes in the water, we discovered that's pretty...

Pros

* Pretty much a one-for-one swap with mySQL, only faster and cheaper * Not any learning curve * Super reliable

Cons

* If you have a seriously customized mysql installation, there may be some plugins that don't work

Cloud Database System

Reviewed 9 days ago

In a project I did as part of the AWS course I took, I pulled tweet data from Twitter and saved it to the AWS Aurora database. I performed sentiment analysis by taking the data from the database and saved the results back to the AWS aurora database.

Pros

It is a very good feature that the application is cloud-based. You can connect remotely and run a query with many software languages. It is also quite simple to create the database and the machine. You can increase or decrease the hardware features at any time.

Cons

Amazon Aurora charges per hour worked because it is Amazon's web service. The fare here may seem a bit expensive. The cost of this system should be compared with the on premises system and should be selected accordingly.

No concerns for speed or our SLAs

Reviewed 3 months ago

Years ago, as our product and userbase grew enough that basic RDS wasn't cutting it, our IT team was surprised at how affordable the move to Aurora was, considering all the improvements. We've never looked back and don't have to spend nearly any working hours on scaling, migrations, and backups. We couldn't do what we do with out it.

Pros

The reliability, speed, and ease of scaling that Aurora offers are unmatched at their price. RDS was great when we started out, but with our software's growth, moving to Aurora was an easy decision.

Cons

The software has pretty much checked every box we have for managed database solutions. The only *ding* they get is for some often slow support response times/solutions.
