AWS RDS

AWS RDS

In today’s digital age, organizational agility and scalability are among the key business differentiators. Companies from all over the world are trying to optimize repetitive, time-consuming, and resource-intensive tasks, such as database administration, to increase the effectiveness of their applications and gain faster insights. By leveraging tools such as Amazon Relational Database, Brillio and AWS provide best-in-class database management services, helping organizations achieve their goals.

Amazon Relational Database Service (Amazon RDS) makes it easy to set up, operate, and scale a relational database in the cloud. It provides cost-efficient and resizable capacity while automating time-consuming administration tasks such as hardware provisioning, database setup, patching, and backups.

Amazon RDS is available on several database instance types – optimized for memory, performance, or I/O – and provides six familiar database engines to choose from, including Amazon Aurora, PostgreSQL, MySQL, MariaDB, Oracle Database, and SQL Server. AWS Database Migration Service can easily migrate or replicate your existing databases to Amazon RDS.

Benefits

  • Easy administration:

    Amazon RDS makes it easy to go from project conception to deployment. Use the Amazon RDS Management Console, the AWS RDS Command-Line Interface, or simple API calls to access the capabilities of a production-ready relational database in minutes. There is no need for infrastructure provisioning and no need for installing and maintaining database software.

  • Highly scalable:

    You can scale your database’s compute and storage resources with only a few mouse clicks or an API call. Many Amazon RDS engine types allow you to launch one or more Read Replicas to offload read traffic from your primary database instance.

  • Available and durable:

    Amazon RDS runs on the same highly reliable infrastructure used by other Amazon Web Services that enhance reliability for critical production databases, including automated backups, database snapshots, and automatic host replacement.

  • Fast:

    Amazon RDS supports the most demanding database applications. You can choose between two SSD-backed storage options; one optimized for high-performance OLTP applications and the other for cost-effective general-purpose use. In addition, Amazon Aurora provides performance on par with commercial databases at 1/10th the cost.

  • Secure:

    Amazon RDS makes it easy to control network access to your database. Amazon RDS also lets you run your database instances in Amazon Virtual Private Cloud (Amazon VPC), which enables you to isolate your database instances and connect to your existing IT infrastructure through an industry-standard encrypted IPsec VPN. Many Amazon RDS engine types offer encryption at rest and encryption in transit.

  • Cost-efficient:

    You pay very low rates and only for the resources you actually consume. In addition, you benefit from the option of On-Demand pricing with no up-front or long-term commitments, or even lower hourly rates via our Reserved Instance pricing.

Use Cases

  • Web and mobile applications:

    Web and mobile applications that are built to operate at very large scale need a database with massive storage scalability and high availability. Amazon RDS fulfills the needs of such highly demanding applications with room for future growth. Since Amazon RDS does not have any licensing constraints, it perfectly fits the variable usage pattern of these applications.

  • Ecommerce applications:

    Amazon RDS offers small and large ecommerce businesses a flexible, secured, highly scalable, and low-cost database solution for online sales and retailing. Amazon RDS provides a managed database helping ecommerce companies meet PCI compliance and focus on building high quality customer experiences without worrying about managing the underlying database.

  • Mobile and online games

    Mobile and online games need a database platform with high throughput and availability. Amazon RDS manages the database infrastructure so that game developers do not have to worry about provisioning, scaling, or monitoring database servers. Amazon RDS provides familiar database engines that can rapidly grow capacity to meet user demand.
