What do you like most about Amazon RDS?
Thanks for sharing your thoughts with the community!
Being able to change the size of an RDS MySQL instance is amazing.
For me, RDS is a great solution. I like that Amazon RDS is a very simple solution to implement and to start using.
It is easy to use, flexible, and powerful.
The initial setup is straightforward, and technical support is good.
The product is very, very easy to use.
It makes it easy to administer the database. It helps to scale your database by providing Read Replicas, which reduce transaction time. It is highly available and durable which helps in disaster recovery and management.
The most valuable feature is that it is a fully managed database, where they handle most of the administrative tasks and leaves the users more time to concentrate on business.
The provisioning is much faster. You don't have to prepare hardware or install software. You just need to create an instance and you have a database.
We all know it's really hard to get good pricing and cost information.
