Amazon Aurora

Many places where Aurora is well suited:
  • If you are trying to build a serverless backend.
  • Amazon hosted relational database service (RDS). So we do not have to manage the database maintenance.
  • Backup and archival can be done to AWS S3, which is very convenient.
  • It provides high performance and scalability.
  • It's very secure. You could use AWS Key management service (KMS) to encrypt and store data on AWS Aurora.

SQL Developer

Oracle SQL Developer is best suited while using Oracle Databases, may it be any versions or any Oracle Databases. But if you try using it with any other databases such as MariaDB or MySQL, it does not work very well, in fact it is quite useless. But I have to say, it is quite easy to use, and install.

Pros

  • Amazon Aurora has high availability, since the customer started to use it, the database never had to be left out of service.
  • Amazon Aurora provides frequent and automated upgrades, which makes our database system always up to date on the latest features and security practices
  • Since Amazon Aurora uses MySQL as its core database, it is very easy to find specialized people to work. Amazon’s relational database management system also makes it very easy to expand and create new databases

  • Very intuitive user interface
  • Easy Data Manipulation Language operations like inserts, updates, and deletes.
  • It highlights the syntax errors

Cons

  • Cold-starts are part of the Aurora Serverless compromise, but they are painful nonetheless.
  • We're accustomed to sub-second metering for AWS Lambda; Aurora Serverless has 1-minute minimums for resources.
  • Aurora Serverless is compatible with MySQL 5.6. MySQL 5.6 lacks many of the features PostgreSQL users will expect.

  • It would be helpful if one could quickly and easily integrate another editor into this tool. Although the provided editor is quite useful, other 3rd-party editors are much more powerful.
  • SQL Developer should be able to easily integrate with source control providers other than GIT and Subversion.
  • The syntactical auto-completion should allow some keystroke to complete and suggested statement rather than requiring a mouse-click to accept the suggestion.

Alternatives Considered

Aurora MySQL 5.6 lacks many of the features of PostgreSQL, and even more recent versions of MySQL or MariaDB. You may be able to tolerate these deficiencies; simple OLTP use-cases will be served adequately. Like RDS and DynamoDB, Aurora is managed and integrates well with other AWS products. Amazon Aurora Serverless can be much less expensive than RDS, however.

Oracle SQL Developer delivers a friendly, clean graphical interface that fits the user's different levels of knowledge. The left side of the main window allows you to easily select the objects that populate the databases, while the right part provides the details of the selected items. The tool can also be used with non-Oracle databases, such as IBM DB2, MS Access, MS SQL Server and MySQL. Ultimately it can be considered a reliable and at the same time advanced tool to facilitate database management.
I feel like I'm getting better with SQL Developer, for now, I downloaded TOAD, but I don't like it.

Return on Investment

  • Aurora Serverless has allowed us to inexpensively implement best-practices for our microservices architecture.
  • Aurora is mostly managed; our engineers can focus on features instead of database administration.
  • Aurora is capable of high throughput. Speed is not our first priority, but we still benefit from it.
