Level 200 | Use Case How To
Using open source databases on AWS can bring many benefits, including reducing costs and eliminating vendor lock-in, but users of traditional commercial databases may have questions about where to begin.

AWS offers support for a wide range of open source databases, including relational (e.g. MySQL, PostgreSQL) and non-relational (e.g. Redis, Memcached) types, through a variety of self-managed and managed service solutions. This webinar will introduce some of the more popular open source databases and their chief use cases, and will explain your different options for running them as part of your AWS solution stack. It will also break down the performance, operational, and cost benefits of using managed database services, like Amazon Aurora and Amazon RDS, which are compatible with leading open source databases.

Learning Objectives:
• Learn the benefits of building apps on AWS with open source databases like MySQL, PostgreSQL, Redis, and Memcached
• See how AWS database services provide the simplicity and cost-effectiveness of open source while automating time-consuming administrative tasks
• Get an inside look at how Amazon Aurora, a cloud-native database service, enhances open source MySQL and PostgreSQL with enterprise performance and availability

Suited For: Developers, DBAs, Senior IT Leaders, and anyone using databases on AWS
