Amazon Relational Database Service now supports Multi-AZ Deployments, which provide your primary DB Instance with a synchronously replicated hot standby in a different Availability Zone to provide data redundancy, eliminate I/O freezes during system maintenance and backups, and help protect your databases against DB Instance failure. For more information, see Multi-AZ Deployments in the Amazon RDS Developer Guide.
|New API Version||
The Amazon RDS API has been updated to version 2010-01-01. The new WSDL is available at https://rds.amazonaws.com/doc/2010-01-01/AmazonRDSv2.wsdl.
|Brief outage when converting old DB Instances||DB Instances created prior to the Multi-AZ feature release will experience a short downtime when converting to Multi-AZ for the first time. New DB Instances experience no downtime when converting to and from Multi-AZ deployments.|
