Amazon Aurora July 2019 Update

Released on July 29th, 2019

Amazon Aurora Serverless with MySQL-Compatibility now available in AWS China (Ningxia) Region, Operated by NWCD

Amazon Aurora Serverless (MySQL-compatible edition) is now available in AWS China (Ningxia) Region, Operated by NWCD.  

Aurora Serverless is an on-demand, auto-scaling configuration for Amazon Aurora that automatically starts, scales, and shuts down database capacity with per-second billing for applications with infrequent, intermittent, or unpredictable usage patterns. Aurora Serverless offers database capacity without the need to provision, scale, and manage any servers. Aurora Serverless brings the power of a MySQL-compatible database built for the cloud to applications with unpredictable or intermittent usage patterns. 

You can create an Aurora Serverless database instance in the Amazon RDS Management Console. Please refer to the Amazon Aurora User Guide for more details and Amazon Aurora product page for pricing. 

Amazon Aurora combines the performance and availability of high-end commercial databases with the simplicity and cost-effectiveness of open source databases. It provides up to five times better performance than the typical MySQL database, together with increased scalability, durability, and security. For more information, please visit the Amazon Aurora product page

Amazon Aurora Supports Cloning Across AWS Accounts

You can now share your Amazon Aurora DB clusters with other AWS accounts for quick and efficient database cloning.

Database cloning is faster than restoring a snapshot and requires no additional space at the time of creation. You are only charged for additional storage if you make data changes in the cloned DB cluster. Cross-account database cloning could be useful, for example, when you have separate accounts for production and testing. You can use the clone to verify schema changes, test different parameters, and run analytic queries on production data without providing direct access to the production account or impacting the performance of the production database.

Both MySQL- and PostgreSQL-compatible editions of Amazon Aurora support cross-account database cloning. Read more about database cloning in the Aurora documentation. To create a cross-account database clone, visit the AWS Management Console or download the latest AWS SDK or CLI.

Aurora integrates with AWS Resource Access Manager (RAM), enabling you to securely share DB clusters with other accounts for cloning. This capability is supported in all AWS regions where Aurora and RAM are available. Refer the AWS Region Table for regional availability.
