Pros and Cons
- Optimized storage type for intensive I/O operations.
- Continuous backups to S3.
- 5x higher throughput than regular MySql 5.6.
- Even though you are only billed per second of usage, there is a minimum of 5 minutes billed each time the database is active.
- For high load apps, Aurora Serverless is extremely expensive as compared to a single provisioned Aurora instance.
