Starting today, you can create cross-region read replicas for Amazon Aurora. This allows you to serve read traffic from your users in different geographic regions and increases your application’s responsiveness.
This feature also provides you with improved disaster recovery capabilities in case of regional disruptions. You can seamlessly migrate your database from one region to another by creating a cross-region read replica and promoting it to be the new primary database. Aurora allows you to create up to 15 read replicas on the same cluster. Visit the product page to learn more about Amazon Aurora or the Aurora documentation for more details on read replicas and cross-region replication.
