After we launched Amazon Aurora, a cloud-native relational database with region-wide durability, high availability, fast failover, up to 15 read replicas, and up to five times the performance of MySQL, many of you asked us whether we could deliver the same features – but with PostgreSQL compatibility. We are now delivering a preview of Amazon Aurora with this functionality: we have built a PostgreSQL-compatible edition of Amazon Aurora, sharing the core Amazon Aurora innovations with the object-oriented capabilities, language interfaces, JSON compatibility, ANSI:SQL:2008 compliance, and broad functional richness of PostgreSQL. Amazon Aurora will provide full PostgreSQL compatibility while delivering more than twice the performance of the community PostgreSQL database on many workloads. At this session, we will be discussing the newest addition to Amazon Aurora in detail.
