Overall Satisfaction with Amazon Relational Database Service (RDS)

I use AWS RDS for my application database in [the] Production, Test, and Dev environment. This service is very useful as it gives many [features] such as Scaling, administration, backup, availability[,] and many more. if you start using AWS RDS then no more database installation is required, it [provides] plug and play feature which lets you to use it with any application by just declaring DB credentials.
  • Scaling
  • Database management like admin process
  • Availability
  • Backup ease
  • Easy to install and use.
  • Allow to create more than 30 Databases on RDS instance[.]
  • Increasing maximum size of storage more than 4TB[.]
  • Does not support SQL server analysis, Integration, reporting, Data quality services.
  • 24x7 availability with ease of use helped me to integrate and launch it very fast.
  • Didn't handle instant spike in request which gives poor user experience of application.

Whether your organization is [an] early startup or large company AWS RDS fits in most of the cases such as 1. Easy to start, setup, used by [a] few or large developers team. 2. You can easily scale DB [instances] when your business required scaling as a startup or pay only for [users] to optimize cost as [a] large organization. 3. If your application requires SQL Server, Oracle, or Maria DB then you should use AWS RDS instance. 4. Your application requires better availability and security of data you can use AWS RDS instance. When AWS RDS is not recommended: 1. You need automatic scaling or capacity flexibility as request load gradually increases, better to use Amazon Aurora DB in this case.
