Amazon Aurora Serverless is an on-demand, auto-scaling configuration for Aurora (MySQL-compatible edition) where the database will automatically start up, shut down, and scale up or down capacity based on your application's needs. It enables you to run your database in the cloud without managing any database instances. Aurora Serverless is a simple, cost-effective option for infrequent, intermittent, or unpredictable workloads. We'll explore these use cases, take a look under the hood, and delve into the future of serverless databases. We'll also hear a case study from a customer building new functionality on top of Aurora Serverless.
