After some years MySQL with Galera had become the most common solution when synchronous replication is needed. The cloud and EC2 in particular had being one of the most used platform to deploy successful MySQL/Galera installations. This year with Aurora, Amazon had introduced an alternative solution, that can use all the flexibility of AWS and simplicity of RDS. Scope of this presentation is to describe the behavior of both MySQL/Galera and Aurora, showing in details how the two different solutions behave when dealing with same load, with highlight on what are the strong point of each and which is the best tool for the job depending the needs.
