You can now migrate encrypted databases from Amazon RDS for MySQL to Amazon Aurora. Previously, only unencrypted databases were supported. Migration can be done either by restoring an RDS MySQL snapshot to Aurora, or by creating an Aurora Read Replica, which has the advantage of automating the copying and replication and minimizing downtime.
Amazon Aurora is a MySQL-compatible database that combines the speed and availability of high-end commercial databases with the simplicity and cost-effectiveness of open source databases. See Amazon Aurora Pricing for regional availability.
