Amazing relational database which is easy to setup and use provided you have the technical know how
Kommentare: AWS RDS can be linked with Victorops/splunk/slack and what not to constantly monitor the state of the database and set up alerts for catching problems. It can automatically save regular copies of the database.
ease of setup
ease of taking snapshots
no configurational drainers
very easy to set up alerts for monitoring problems in the database
debugging is a breeze.
It is easy to get lost without an UI.
also replicating databases can get stuck sometimes if you don't know what you are doing.
replication can be pain depending upon whether you want (master-master) or (master-slaves)

AWS RDS Review
Muhammad arsalan N.
Kommentare: My company need a simple and fast scalable solution for managing MySQL databases therefore we chose RDS. Prior to RDS we were managing DB clusters installed on VMs on Hyper Visors, and it was a cumbersome job. Though switching to RDS does make our life easy but RDS is not a cheap solution though.
Easily Scalable as per need.
AWS manage you infrastructure completely.
Fast Disaster recovery if planned the architecture correctly.
Multi AZ deployment and Read replica supported.
Supported various DB services like MySQL, Oracle, SQL Server and Postgres.
Backup procedure is very easy.
Cost on higher side.
Lack of control on your DB instance, though it's good but at times you need some tweaking todo.

Best managed relational database service in the market!
Kommentare: Choosing RDS was the best strategic decision we made. We saved a lot of time to focus on our company's growth instead of dealing with operations.
Vorteile: We have been using AWS RDS with MySQL since 2015. It is the best option we encountered in the market to set up, operate and scale a relational database in the cloud. Management Console is really easy to use. You can create, restore and scale any size of database in a matter of minutes. You should however be familiar with the technical term AWS uses. Be careful when you choose between General Purpose and Provisioned IOPS types. Multi-AZ feature is a life saver if you have a database that cannot tolerate any downtime. Point in time recovery saved us a lot. Also RDS takes automatic backups regularly. You should also try Amazon Aurora which is an engine compatible with MySQL and PostgreSQL. AWS built Aurora for itself and the underlying technology is mind blowing.
Nachteile: You should be careful with the price of Amazon RDS and keep an eye on CloudWatch and Trusted Advisor. It gets expensive depending on usage but still it is worth not to struggle with operational problems.

Setting up a "serversless" database environment inminutes
Kommentare: Since we start using RDS it saves us a lot of time. You can start with a small instance and very easily grow to a larger instance and a multi AZ (High available) setup. No need to worry about disk space anymore for backups or snapshots. Amazon doesn't run out of space. You can setup automated backup with a retention of 35 days max but if you need to keep backups longer you can create manual snapshots and keep them forever.
- Very easy to setup
- Creating database environments including HA in minutes
- Creating a HA environment without having to know anything about database replication
- Upgrading the DB engine with a click of a mouse
- Very ease to create backups (and setup automated snapshots)
- Easy to restore
- Can be managed via the weg GUI but also via the very powerful AWS CLI
- No need to manage an Operating system
- Changing instanced types if you need more or less CPU/memory.
- Dynamically change the storage
- Performance is very good
- On Aurora the disk spaces grows automatically when the database grows. But when deleting lots of data its not possible to shrink the file system.
- No root access to server (which we never missed since using RDS)

Amazon RDS - The Relational Database Service
Kommentare: Amazon Relational Database allows us to encrypt your data using the Amazon Web Key Management. We manage our databases on Amazon Virtual Private which isolate the service and keep running without trouble. Monitoring of AWS RDS with Amazon CloudWatch is easy and describes details in metrics with no extra cost. Amazon Aurora is one of the cost efficient RDS.
Vorteile: Amazon Relational Database Service is one of the best product of AWS. The best thing in it is easy to deploy,patch,backup,security and administrate . The distributed architecture provide render the high scalability feature in it. The hardware upgrade is also easy and less time consuming with AWS as it comes with the embed features of it. After switching to the AWS RDS there is a less administration activities needed on managing the databases. Best feature in it is, if you are new to the RDS it also provides the best practices and recommendations. Managing the database snapshot with the help of Amazon S3 is also very convenient.
Nachteile: Amazon Relational Databases management is easy but it's little tricky also as if you mess up the security group setting to vast, it's not an easy task to solve the puzzle. Best practices is to keep the security group setting simple and as per recommendation by AWS.

Amazon RDS - Keeping it simple & easy
Kommentare: Overall very satisfied. It worked for our use case.
Vorteile: Easy to setup and running. All cloudwatch metrics made available like other AWS services. Ability to take snapshots, scale up horizontally and vertically across environments and depending upon load. We were able to automate our build and deployments using terraform scripts. Automated Backups are stored in S3 so you can retrieve backups when needed. Pay as you go like traditional EC2 metered cost model. You can predict your montly/yearly estimates before hand. It just works! Supports a wide range of DB's - PostgreSQL, MySQL, MSSQL, etc.
Nachteile: Security setup may take time as its controlled by security groups. So it takes time to troubleshoot if you are not able to connect from local or any other remote instance. Pricing may start to increase when you upgrade your instance types and add replication nodes etc.

Always up, 0 headache database option
Kommentare: It's been a great experience so far. It also helps us manage a lot of our compliance risk living in a fully compliant datacenter.
Vorteile: We use Aurora, which gives us a lot of flexibility in scale and size. Not having to manage clusters or database consistency across a number of different machines is amazing.
Nachteile: RDS, and aurora, generally lags behind the current state of postgres, which comes with the territory.

Amazon RDS is cheapest database service i have used so far
Kommentare: The benefit we got from using RDS is that we have full control of the RDS instance. Unlike heroku RDS allows me to create any number of databases i want plus it provides 20 GB of PostgresSQL instance in its free tier
Vorteile: Amazon RDS provides arelational database instance that you can use to create any number to databases. All data are stored in SSD that provides faster read and write compared to conventional magnetic disk. Data can be secured by applying a security group such that the database can get request from within AWS (EC2 servers). RDS provides variety of databases each with their free tier.
Nachteile: Prices to enable multi availability zones for an instance is just double to their singe availability zone. It is too costly. For beginner the set up of RDS is quite confusing. Sometimes It doesn't display the estimated price of while setting up resources of an instance.

Best Relational Database Service in the market til now
Kommentare: Overall its the best thing we did to choose AWS RDS, we are happy with the service amazon provides & we can focus on other issue leaving our database in amazon's strong hands.
Vorteile: He been using AWS RDS for like 4 years now, & its the best Database management tool we ever tried. Here its super easy to operate & scale your database. The console is easy to understand & somehow intuitive if you been working with databases in past. Multi-AZ feature gives you power if you cannot afford any downtime. RDS takes backup automatically so no worries of loosing any data.
Nachteile: Only dark side of AWS RDS is its pricing, do have a watch on what they billing you. Keep track of your usage on CloudWatch and Trusted Adviser. It may get expensive not not affordable if you use it without sincere approach.

Super simple managed database solution
Kommentare: Quick and repeatable deployments, wide range of DB flavors, fully managed and supported by AWS.
AWS provides a fully managed database solution covering a number of DB technologies, so most deployments can utilize this product. MySQL, Postgres, MSSQL, Oracle, MariaDB, are all there, as well as AWS's own Aurora high performance DB.
Automated backups, with 5 minute point in time recovery is provided out of the box at no additional cost, as is software patching. If you require high availability spanning multiple data centers, it's there too.
Nachteile: If there is a downside to AWS RDS, it would be that it does not cover every use case. In the MSSQL world, you cannot use SSRS or SSIS on RDS, so would need to look at MSSQL on EC2 instead .

Go-to solution for database hosting on AWS
Vorteile: We're using Amazon RDS PostgreSQL. Our database use case is pretty trivial, so we're entirely satisfied with RDS experience. Database is fast and efficient, very easy to scale by changing instance types, adding more disk I/O, or spinning up read replicas. Backups do not have significant performance penalty. With some careful planning it is very easy to migrate between different software versions. Reserved instances make it a very compelling offering.
Nachteile: It gets expensive, but if you consider the fact that you don't need to deal with many daily operational issue, it's well worth the price. You can only add storage capacity (no storage downsizing possible without a complex migration process).

Best "cloud" rDB implementation so far
Kommentare: I've been using AWS since 2015 and to be fair, it has only improved all this time. Being RDS one of the most commonly used services, I have plenty of experience with it (including the support team behind it) and I only have good things to say about it.
- Fully managed database
- Access to all the configuration options you would usually do when tweaking the configuration file(s)
- Top notch support
- High-availability is just a few mouse clicks away
- Incredible easy to setup master/slave scenarios
- Great backup (snapshot) service
- Great performance with basic monitoring included
- You get the database engine you already know without the hassle to have to set it up by yourself
- Price? AWS is still expensive
- Nothing else I can think of

Watch out for billing surprises
Vorteile: Amazon has worked hard to democratises databases, it's easy to set up a variety of different type of databases: SQL, Oracle, MySQL etc and perform things that typically have been a little more complicated with just a few clicks for example snapshots and database mirrors for you analytical platform. Choose the region in which you're seeking to operate with just a few clicks, and it's pretty easy to kick off auto-scaling etc.
Nachteile: You need to be careful with billing surprises, make sure that you're familiar with Cloudwatch before you start playing with RDS. Keep an eye on how much it's costing you. Amazon may be elastic, but your budget probably lacks the same amount of elasticity.

Forget about management!
Kommentare: As most AWS services, it is super useful when your business is in a phase where you need more services and less time to manage them. If you can pay for the maintenance maybe you prefer to optimize your setup managing it by yourself.
Vorteile: You can set it up with a few clicks only, and you get a fully managed database instance: forget about backups, OS updates, etc. It even sets up High Availability for you if needed, creating multiple nodes. You can choose the resources of the system (CPU, Hard Disk, memory) and other configurations (DBMS parameters, extra read nodes…)
Nachteile: You can only scale resources by using a bigger instance type (it means more CPU and more RAM) or replica nodes. Eg. you cannot set up a Raid disk configuration to improve I/O.

Easiest database management there is
Kommentare: Peace of mind if it's about database administration, backup and availability.
Vorteile: It's fully managed database service with multiple database types available (Amazon Aurora, PostgreSQL, MySQL, MariaDB, Oracle, and Microsoft SQL Server) - you can chose whatever you like or used to run. It's really easy to migrate from existing database of the same type. RDS is highly available and durable service if you chose to run in multi AZ (multiple availability zone/datacenter) scenario (master/slave replication). Amazon will do all the administration task like upgrades or failover for you. Max database storage size is 16 TB (in most cases) and you pay only for what you use.
Nachteile: It'a a little pricey and not all advance database configuration/administratio options are available if you compare it to on premise deployment.

Great for supplying your EC2 instances with a fully managed database service
Kommentare: RDS is a very solid DBaaS product and we are very satisfied with it so far.
Vorteile: The top benefit is not needing to hire a DBA to manage our DB instances. RDS offers a number of DBs including PostgreSQL, MySQL, Aurora, and more. It was dead simple to move a number of our services to AWS and link them with RDS MySQL. RDS will handle operations like upgrades, backups, patching, etc. Performance-wise we did not notice any significant differences between RDS and our on-prem solution. We also made use of replication by setting up multiple RDS MySQL replicas. Of course, this is highly dependent on your app so be sure to benchmark both before and after performance.
Nachteile: If you choose RDS, you will be (somewhat) locked into AWS. Not necessarily a bad thing as the pricing model is reasonable (pay per instance and storage capability) but you are still locked-in. You can move off of RDS but it's not trivial and will require a data migration - words that make all admins shudder.

RDS is Great
Vorteile: Amazon RDS saves me from the hassle of having to worry about backups, scalability and monitoring. It's indispensable if you have a large application which relies on SQL.
Only two cons about the product:
1. Customer support took several days to solve a critical problem I had with my account in the beginning of 2019. My service was down for two days, but this could have been sold easily if I got a faster response from the team.
2. Default max connections soft limit on MySQL databases is too low, which makes your service go down if you have a reasonable amount of traffic. I could solve that after a few hours researching how to change this configuration and also had a friend who uses RDS and had the same issue. We both almost stopped using it before knowing how to fix that.

Cloud base Data
Kommentare: My old man has a big database of tires, it's huge. And for his stores, he needed to access the data quick enough to give prices or stocks. We first try a local server, which wasn't as fast or as big as we needed. Amazon took the job and did it perfectly.
Vorteile: If you need some data on the cloud for your software, you can totally trust Amazon to do it. Their servers are totally protected and fast enough to give you the info you need. Even high portions of data can go into it without much problem.
Nachteile: The price can go sometimes high if some storage, but it's totally worth it if you need it to be secure and functional at all times.

Database service that allows you to scale easily and quickly
Kommentare: Very good. Started using it when we were a small startup and it allowed us to easily scale to a full grown portal.
Vorteile: A lot of server tiers available to choose from, good when you need to start out with a smaller instance. Like to option to quickly create snapshots or restore a backup. Multi-az is a nice freaute to have that can save your business when things go south.
Nachteile: Halted instances are booted back up after 7 days automatically, so you can't really have an instance that is stopped for a long time. Since it's not a self-hosted service, there are some low level features that are missing.

No need of building own infrastucture, use RDS and save time ,money. Rapid development
AWS is the reason, amazon is giant today and RDS is one of the most used services on AWS.
No need of maintaining own infrastructure, server, backup plans. Use RDS, they have everything ready for you, create RDS instances , as much as you required, scale if you need more resources, use RDS backup
plans to backup all your data and retrieve whenever required. with 99.999% availability and highly secured features, your application development will be much better.
Nachteile: security features need to be taken care seriously

Amazon RDS - The Clear Winner
Kommentare: We use Amazon RDS for all of our database needs. We use it for our transactional (OLTP) and datawarehousing database needs.
Vorteile: Amazon RDS is Amazon's solution to hosted database services in the cloud. The console is easy to use and provides a ton of functionality with the click of a button. They have CLI and other API's that makes it easy to automate processes such as backup and recovery.
Nachteile: Microsoft products are supported but latest features are late to be added. Amazon likes to push their own products and slower adopt new features of SQL Server.

Amazon Web Services are the Best!
It caters to all types of requirements in terms of size, it can handle any amount of data
The pricing is good and even a person starting out his website or server can use this to maintain 100% uptime of his database.
You can control a lot of things from the Control Panel of AWS which include monitoring CPU usage, number of connections. It provides easy rebooting as well.
Nachteile: There was nothing that I did not like about this software. I am still using it and it solves my use case perfectly.

RDS is awsome!
As a sysadmin, I working with many databases and tools related to this. I could say that RDS is a great service, that allows your team to focus on business, letting Amazon manages your database for you.
I also appreciate pay on demand, and the facility to upgrade environments.
Nachteile: I could say that I like every aspect of this product, but if I should say some negative aspect. I would say that price on America/Sao_Paulo is a bad aspect, but I know that isn't RDS problem but the cost of my country.

Managing a lot of database things you don't want to do yourself
Vorteile: Gold standard in SaaS/IaaS database services. Handles many tasks and configuration options for you. Amazon Aurora is a great, fast and reliable database service available in RDS. Integrates well with other AWS services.
Nachteile: Ties one in to the AWS platform, particularly if you start using some of the best features like Aurora. The AWS console is not user-friendly. Can get quite expensive, but probably still cheaper than hiring highly-skilled people to manage your databases for you.
