Amazon Web Services has extended Amazon Relational Database Service (Amazon RDS) to the US West (Northern California) Region. Amazon RDS provides cost-efficient and resizable capacity for MySQL deployments in the cloud, while managing time-consuming tasks like backup, scaling, and patching. Developers and business can now run Amazon RDS DB Instances with closer proximity to other AWS resources in the Northern California Region in order to reduce latency.

Amazon RDS now supports the US East (Northern Virginia), US West (Northern California), EU (Ireland), and Asia Pacific (Singapore) Regions. Learn more about Amazon RDS and pricing by Region.
