Amazon RDS Aurora MySQL – Differences Among Editions

Amazon Aurora with MySQL Compatibility comes in three editions which, at the time of writing, have quite a few differences around the features that they support.  Make sure you don’t assume the newer Aurora 2.x supports everything in Aurora 1.x. On the contrary, right now Aurora 1.x (MySQL 5.6 based) supports most Aurora features.  The serverless option was launched for this version, and it’s not based on the latest MySQL 5.7.  However, the serverless option, too, has its own set of limitations

I found a concise comparison of what is available in which Amazon Aurora edition hard to come by so I’ve created one.  The table was compiled based mostly on documentation research, so if you spot some mistakes please let me know and I’ll make a correction.

Please keep in mind, this is expected to …

AWS Elastic Block Storage (EBS) – Can We Get It Truly Elastic?

At AWS Re:Invent 2018 there were many great announcements of AWS New Services and New Features, but one basic feature that I’ve been waiting for years to be released is still nowhere to be  found.

AWS Elastic Block Storage (EBS) is great and it’s got better through the years, adding different storage types and features like Provisioned IOPS. However, it still has the most basic inconvenient requirement – I have to decide in advance how much space I need to allocate, and pay for all of that allocated space whether I use it or not.

It would be so much better if AWS would allow true consumption model pricing with EBS, where you pay for the storage used, not the storage allocated. This is already the case for S3, …

Migrate MySQL data to RDS/Aurora Using Xtrabackup

In this blog, I will provide a step by step procedure to migrate from on-premise MySQL to Amazon RDS/Aurora using Percona-xtrabackup

Both RDS and Aurora is a DBAAS provided by Amazon. To know more on DBAAS you can view our presentation here.

When you are having a database in size of few GB, it would be very convenient to take a logical backup using a logical backup tool such as Mysqldump or Mydumper and restore it Amazon RDS/Aurora easily. But this is not the case when you are having a data size of a few hundred GB or TB, Where the logical backup and restore is very painful and time-consuming. To overcome this we can use …

He’ll review the pros and cons of managing HA and DR in the traditional database environment as well in the cloud. Having full control of these areas is daunting, and Amazon RDS makes meeting these needs easier and more efficient.

Migrating to Amazon Aurora: Optimize for Binary Log Replication

In this Checklist for Success series, we will discuss reducing unknowns when hosting in the cloud using and migrating to Amazon Aurora. These tips might also apply to other database as a service (DBaaS) offerings.

In our previous article, we discussed the importance of continuous query performance analysis, especially in Amazon Aurora where there is less diagnostic visibility compared to running on EC2 or on-premise. Aside from uptime though, we need a lot more from our data, and we definitely cannot isolate it in Aurora.

Next on our checklist is that at one point or another, we will need to use asynchronous replication. Amazon Aurora has an excellent reputation for absorbing intense amounts of …
