Just received an email from Amazon AWS about their new service: Amazon Relational Service or RDS!
Previously, MySQL database are configured to use an EBS volumes for persistence(Running MySQL on Amazon EC2 with Elastic Block Store). Now using the RDS, EBS volumes may not be needed for MySQL databases. Simply launch a instance of RDS,migrate your mysql data, set security settings, run your apps, start taking and managing older snapshots. Yet this is another great feature that AWS added.
But it seems only MySQL 5.1, would it be good if they have added other databases like PostgreSQL for example?
