Amazon Aurora vs. MariaDB SkySQL: Best AWS-Hosted DBaaS

Presented by

Andy Oliver, Senior Director of Product Marketing, MariaDB

About this talk

Amazon Aurora looks like a fantastic deal at first glance: a scalable database in the cloud provided by the world’s leading cloud provider. It has a unique approach of moving much of what databases usually do to the storage layer. However, it also has some shocking limitations when you look under the covers, including write scalability, consistency and cost. MariaDB SkySQL, on the other hand, includes high availability features, multiple database topologies, better read and write scaling, and an architectural cost advantage in terms of lower IOPS. Moreover, by becoming a MariaDB customer you support the continued development of open source database technology. In this presentation, you will learn: • The basics of how Aurora works, and what is included and not included • Aurora's limitations • SkySQL's features and offerings • Exactly how MariaDB SkySQL and Amazon Aurora compare in terms of features, price and capabilities
