Announcing Amazon RDS for MariaDB

Posted on: Oct 7, 2015

We are pleased to announce the immediate availability of Amazon Relational Database Service (Amazon RDS) for MariaDB. Amazon RDS makes it easy to set up, operate, and scale MariaDB deployments in the cloud. Through Amazon RDS, MariaDB is now available as a fully-managed service on AWS with up to 6TB of storage, 30,000 IOPS, and support for high-availability deployments. Amazon RDS automatically handles database tasks such as provisioning, patching, backup, recovery, failure detection, and repair; freeing you up to focus on your application.
MariaDB joins Amazon Aurora, MySQL, Oracle, Microsoft SQL Server, and PostgreSQL as the sixth relational database engine available to customers through Amazon RDS.

New customers can get started with a Free Usage Tier, which provides for one year free usage of Amazon RDS micro instance with 750 usage hours, 20GB of storage, and 10 million I/O requests per month. Amazon RDS for MariaDB is available in all commercial regions. You can start running production workloads from day one with high availability using Multi-AZ.
