Fast Database Cloning in Amazon Aurora – #AWS Video
Amazon Aurora is a MySQL-compatible relational database, offering up to 5 times performance of MySQL for one-tenth the cost of commercial databases. Fast Database Cloning creates copies in minutes for development, QA and IT operations. Learn more about Amazon Aurora at – http://amzn.to/2ofcCIj.
Fast Database Cloning allows developers, testers and IT to create as many database copies as they need, in a completely self-service model. It’s the alternative to cloning with high-end storage arrays or software tools that cost hundreds of thousands of dollars. Fast Database Cloning is efficient because it leverages the native Copy on Write capability in the Aurora storage layer. No storage gets used – or charged for – unless you write new data to your cloned database.
