What is Amazon Aurora and RDS?

Amazon Relational Database Service (RDS) is a managed database service that enables easy set up, operate, and scale a relational database leveraging any of seven familiar database engines, including Amazon Aurora (PostgreSQL), Amazon Aurora (MySQL), PostgreSQL, MySQL, MariaDB, Oracle, and MS SQL Server. Amazon RDS can help free up time and resources for other value driving tasks such as performance tuning. RDS provides administration for Aurora by handling routine database tasks such as provisioning, patching, backup, recovery, failure detection, and repair. Aurora is a high performance, secure, and highly available MySQL and PostgreSQL-compatible relational database hosted on AWS.
