Common challenges when using Amazon Aurora
How can multi-region MySQL / MariaDB / Percona deployments be improved?
As part of the discussion, we'll be exploring the following design criteria:

Geographically distributed, low-latency data with a single consolidated view
Fast local response times for read traffic
