Overall Satisfaction with Amazon Relational Database Service

We have been using AWS RDS with MySQL for internal as well as production level since 2014. Amazon RDS is the best option to host relational databases. We are using AWS RDS to support our web service and website solution for the client, which exceeds 1+ million hits over a month.
  • High availability and scalability with HIPPA compliance for sensitive data.
  • Great interactive console and configuration option.
  • Great availability of cloud watch triggers.
  • Very fast and easy to create a backup and restore.
  • It's a little bit complex for new users to understand all configurations.
  • Security group creation and maintenance is time-consuming.
  • Costly for small organizations.
  • Improved the performance of the system.
  • Provides the support of a large and scalable database, which lead to the ability to serve multiple requests simultaneously.
Amazon RDS provides more configuration ability, and also it's scalable and highly available for real-time response to the complex query.
Amazon RDS is the best suitable solution if you want to store sensitive data in the cloud with high availability and scalability of the database. Cost is a major concern. If your organization is financially small, then only you have to search for another solution.
