Amazon Aurora MySQL and RDS MySQL: Lessons learned (Lightning Talk)

Monday 5:20PM

@ Demo Theater in the Exhibit Hall

Lightning Talk


Business / Case Studies

Determining the best and most suitable relational database management system (RDBMS) for a given project isn't an easy task and it can be rather challenging at times. It is like benchmarking fast cars created by different racing teams!
The presentation will compare, using a large body of experimental results, two highly-available cloud closed-source products, Amazon Aurora MySQL and RDS MySQL, both based on the Open Source MySQL Edition.
Both use cases have demonstrated that MySQL is a great
solution for concurrent writes, reads and read and write traffic.
Additionally, both scenarios have proven to be successful, satisfying data integrity, reliability and scalability with different outcomes.
