Amazon Aurora Goes Serverless

by Developer.com Staff

The cloud computing service makes it much easier to manage databases with variable or unpredictable workloads.

Amazon Web Services (AWS) is now offering a serverless version of its Aurora database cloud computing service. Previously available as a preview, Amazon Aurora Serverless scales on demand and eliminates the need for users to provision and manage database resources.

“More and more customers are moving production applications and databases from Oracle and SQL Server to Amazon Aurora because it’s a highly available, highly durable, built-for-the-cloud database at one tenth the cost of the older guard database offerings,” said Raju Gulabani, vice president of databases, analytics, and machine learning at AWS. “With the availability of Aurora Serverless, we now make it more cost effective for our customers to run intermittent or cyclical workloads that have less predictable usage patterns such as development and test workloads or applications that experience seasonal spikes, making Aurora even more attractive for every imaginable workload.”
