Amazon Aurora (Aurora) is a fully managed, MySQL- and PostgreSQL-compatible, relational database engine. It combines the speed and reliability of high-end commercial databases with the simplicity and cost-effectiveness of open-source databases.
Aurora makes it simple and cost-effective to set up, operate, and scale your MySQL and PostgreSQL deployments, freeing you to focus on your business and applications. Amazon RDS provides administration for Aurora by handling routine database tasks such as provisioning, patching, backup, recovery, failure detection, and repair. Amazon RDS also provides push-button migration tools to convert your existing Amazon RDS for MySQL and Amazon RDS for PostgreSQL applications to Aurora.
Amazon Aurora is a drop-in replacement for MySQL and PostgreSQL. The code, tools, and applications you use today with your existing MySQL and PostgreSQL databases can be used with Amazon Aurora.
HeadSoft supports Aurora with a comprehensive service that includes: implementation; availability, performance, and security management; local and geographically distributed replication sets; and backup and recovery services.
