Amazon Aurora is essentially a relational database as a service on AWS. Since it is cloud-based, there are many advantages to its name. First of all, it is a server-less database which essentially means that you do not need to host a physical server and provide space for it. Secondly, it is a pay-per-use model which means you only pay whenever you use it, which is a great feature if you do not make everyday queries into the database. Since it is again an amazing product from Amazon, it fits very well in the AWS ecosystem. You can use it to scale your database as per your needs, no need to buy server space and resources in advance, then not use them. It can scale and descale according to your needs.
