Amazon pitches MySQL in the cloud for US$19 a month
Amazon Web Services has introduced a micro version of its cloud-based database service RDS running MySQL and priced from US$19 a month, the company said on Monday.
Just like Amazon’s other cloud services, RDS (Relational Database Service) takes care of set-up, operations and scaling. For example, the service automatically patches the database software and backs up data.
Code, applications, and tools that IT staff already use with their existing on-premise databases can also be used with RDS, according to Amazon.
