Access to Different Engine Types
Amazon RDS now offers six database engines: MariaDB, MySQL, Oracle, SQL Server, PostgreSQL and Amazon Aurora. Aurora is an AWS offering for MySQL-compatible database designed for scaling database applications with high availability feature with absolute no need for specialized tuning skills.
Amazon RDS offers read replicas if your business needs database for read heavy workloads with asynchronous replication. Multi-availability zone option can be used for high availability with synchronous replication. A replica database is kept in sync with the primary database in case of failure and can be changed to primary as per requirement. Cross-region read replicas are available for workloads across different regions. Read Replicas can be manually promoted to standalone or primary depending on the database engine.
Being one of the most popular AWS service, you can enjoy it at a low cost due to massive economy of scale. Bespin Global also maximizes your benefit by offering flexible payment terms either on-demand or reserved instances with up-front or long-term commitments.
Security is of utmost priority and Bespin Global ensures that encryption at rest and in transit are always configured. Making the RDS encrypted and snapshots as well are a must to keep your data and information always secure. As RDS is a managed service, encryption can be achieved directly using different AWS services such as VPC and KMS.
