When Should You Use MariaDB SkySQL Instead of Amazon RDS?

Presented by

Andrew Oliver, Senior Director of Product Marketing, MariaDB

About this talk

When moving your relational database to the cloud, Amazon Relational Database Service (RDS) seems to be a simple choice. It automates a lot of the work of a DBA, supports familiar SQL dialects such as MariaDB, Oracle, PostgreSQL or MySQL, and provides read scaling. RDS even provides some degree of failover, so it might be a good solution for applications that are not growing and do not require hyper-scale. However, many applications require mixed workload support where some queries are transactional, and some are analytical or long-running. Often these applications require higher levels of scale and cannot accept a 60-120s failover time. Additionally, many organizations are pursuing a multi-cloud strategy. If any of these apply to you, you'll need to look beyond RDS. MariaDB SkySQL was built for these scenarios. By the end of this webinar, you'll know: • The benefits, capabilities and features of both RDS and SkySQL • The situations in which SkySQL might not be appropriate • When SkySQL is the best choice for meeting business or technical requirements
