Pros
Keep the data, and this is a good thing, and this is one of its best features, and some programs are not safe, but this program very safe and very easy to use and retrieve my information is easy.
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.
The best part of Aurora is that it is managed, which makes everything easier for setting up. The data is encrypted which helps the data to be secured completely.
Cons
One bad thing that developers have limited control over the underlying infrastructure and configuration.
It's not user-friendly which makes it difficult to use at the beginning.
The interfaces are all identical, we didn't have to change any code at all (except for one thing -- see below), and once we cut over, it just worked.

Best RDS Solution

Reviewed 4 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.

No concerns for speed or our SLAs

Reviewed 2 years 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.

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

Reviewed 2 years 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
